    "Op-center vs neo-nazi maniacs"
    If you could sum up Games of State in three words, what would they be?

    Go Bob Herbert


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bob Herbert because he kicks the butts of the Neo-Nazi morons with the help of Jodi the young lady he saves from the Neo-Nazis.


    What does Michael Kramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does an excellent reading of the story and all the character voices.


    Who was the most memorable character of Games of State and why?

    Bob Herbert as he does not let been in a wheelchair stop him from giving the Neo-Nazis what for.

    Story
    "NARRATOR READS LIKE A 1 MAN STAGE ACT-JARRING!"
    What did you love best about Games of State?

    THE WAY THE STORY WAS WELL CRAFTED. (AS USUAL...)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Games of State?

    IT WAS VERY HARD TO CONCENTRATE ON THE STORY LINE AND IT BECAME SO "CHOPPY" IT'S HARD TO ISOLATE A MEMORABLE MOMENT THAT DIDN'T INVOLVE THE NARRATOR'S SNAFUS. I'M ATTEMPTING TO FIND A WAY FOR THE MAC READER VOICE THAT IS AVAILABLE IN THE ACCESSIBILITY SECTION READ IT TO ME INSTEAD FOR THE OTHER 9 BOOKS.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    THE ACCENTS AND VOCAL INTONATION TO DENOTE GENDER CHANGE WAS SO DISTRACTING FROM THE ACTUAL FLOW OF THE NOVEL. IT WAS QUITE JARRING. TOTAL KILLER OF MY TRAIN OF THOUGHT! I FEEL THE NARRATOR SHOULD BE A STORY TELLER NOT A PERFORMER. A GOOD NARRATOR IS NEARLY INVISIBLE AND YOU ARE LOST IN THE PLOT MACHINATIONS VICE THIS ONE WHO SEEMS TO BE AUDITIONING FOR A PART RATHER THAN CONTRIBUTING TO THE UNOBTRUSIVE TELLING OF THE STORY. IT CAN DEFINITELY BE DONE MORE SUBTLY. RAINBOW 6 NARRATOR WAS ONE OF THE BEST. LOU DIAMOND PHILLIPS IS ALSO SUBTLE EXCEPT HIS AUSSIE SASR RENDERING. SAME PROBLEM WITH THE "ACTOR" FOR "WITHOUT REMORSE" YEARS AGO...EVERY TIME HE READ THE WOMAN'S PART HE RAISED HIS VOICE 2 OCTAVES, YET PHILLIPS ACHIEVES THE SAME RESULTS WITH A SOFTER TONE OF VOICE IN RELATIVELY THE SAME OCTAVE!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    NEITHER - EXCEPT I WANTED TO CRINGE EVERY TIME THERE WAS A CHARACTER CHANGE!


    Any additional comments?

    IF THERE'S A WAY TO COMMUNICATE THIS TO ALL AUTHORS CHOOSING NARRATORS, PLEASE DO. IT SO DISTRACTS FROM THEIR WORK. THAT'S THE REASON I HAD TO TAKE A BREAK FROM THE OP-CENTER SERIES AFTER THIS BOOK.
