    Story
    "Bronson Pinchot narrating action books - WHO KNEW?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Well, I would to my friends who liked military/merc books with lots of blood and guns. LC's books are fun. I belong to a book club - all woman. I picked one of LC's other books and boy did they bitch! Then they had to eat their words once they read the book. This story is no different, the it's a great and fun read - well listen.


    What other book might you compare Dead Six to and why?

    MHI sans the cool monsters. Maybe The Expendables or The A- Team. Charters that are fun, interesting and a little broken.


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

    It wouldn't be Correia book without him. I have the biggest nerd crush on BP. I have listened to all of Correia's other books, (MHI series and Hard Magic) and I have been so impressed with his ability to make each character so REAL, even the females ones. Some times when men read a female character it can become distracting - not so with B.P.


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

    I laugh out loud so often I try not to listen in public. And I cry too and I talk to and yell at characters. Really B.P. makes these characters come alive.


    Any additional comments?

    I love these books - I can't believe they haven't been made into movies.

    I am a costume designer who listens to books at work. Isn't that a great job?! Discovered the concept way back when it was "books on tape", then cd, and now my iphone. the only down side is that I get upset when actors interupt my stories! Oops!

    Story
    "Surprised, though I shouldn't have been."
    If you could sum up Dead Six in three words, what would they be?

    Riveting. Satisfying. Transcending.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both leads. They were remarkably human and tenacious.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the two trains (story lines) collide.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! Stayed up too late a couple nights and got cranky at work when interrupted.


    Any additional comments?

    I was put off by the description, but since I love MHI and the Grimnoir, I checked out a couple of the other reviews and was convinced to give it a try. I bought three other books at the same time. Tried two of them and didn't make it ten minutes into either of them. I started Dead Six and was hooked two minutes in! I'm sorry, Larry. I should never have doubted you!

    Love a good book. I am usually reading one and listening to one in my car (not at the same time, of course). I like just about any fiction.

    Story
    "Doesn't Get Much Better!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Six to be better than the print version?

    There are some books that I would only get in the print version and some I prefer to get the audible version. With Larry Correia, I don't think it matters. The writing is so solid and the stories so strong that it makes no difference. I just want to get it. I will say that Bronson Pinchot does a great job with most of it and brings the characters to life.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I am one of those people that listens to books while I run or do yard work. When I'm at the gym my mind will usually drift and then I start to look at how many miles I have left to go. That did not happen with this book. I stayed engrossed the entire time and the miles flew by it what seemed like minutes. I really enjoyed the story being told from two different main characters. It was a great way to build depth in the characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to choose from.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a big fan of Larry Correia. I have read the print versions of the a couple of the Monster Hunters and also listened to the others. I have enjoyed them all but I found this to be the best one yet. I really enjoyed the two different main characters and how the entire story unfolds.The one thing that bothered me was the narrator's voice of Big Eddie. Fortunately, he does not speak for most of the book. I found him to be a great villain, I just did not like the voice that went with him. If you like great action, fantastic characters, and lots of guns, you will not be disappointed in this one!

    Story
    "Larry Correia should stick with Magic!"
    Would you try another book from Larry Correia and Mike Kupari and/or Bronson Pinchot?

    If Correia does another Grimnoir book I would jump at the chance. But this outing was boring and the character voices were at times annoying.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Larry Correia and Mike Kupari again?

    Don't think so.


    What three words best describe Bronson Pinchot’s voice?

    Only need one word for Bronson Pinchot's voice...... AWESOME! But bad writing and poor characters can't help him on this outing.

    Satisfied Audible listener since 2002. I mostly listen to Sci-fi and anything by Stephen King.

    Story
    "Two stories smashed together rather awkwardly."

    There are two tales here and both could stand on their own but making them into one felt awkward and somewhat unbelievable. That's along with the complete lack of a likeable lead character meant this story did not have the same appeal as other works by this author. Narration performance is very good.

    Story
    "Great action; terrific characters; classic Corriea"
    Where does Dead Six rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the more enjoyable I've read this year.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the back and forth between the two protagonists. You are wondering who is the good guy and who is the bad guy when both seem to be good guys. If you have read any other Correia books, you will recognize the style, although the story is rooted in reality more than his Grimnoir or Monster series.


    Which character – as performed by Bronson Pinchot – was your favorite?

    I absolutely love the characters he has created. Some of the accents don't seem right to me, but the war weary colonel, the supercilious government agent, and the oily crime lord are pitch perfect.


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

    There are several poignant episodes where you feel the pain of the character. But you also enjoy the black humor and comedy of the absurdities they encounter.


    Any additional comments?

    I usually juggle several books at a time. But this is so engaging; you just have to know what is going to happen next.

    Story
    "It takes a little while to get into the story."

    After the initial action scene the plot has a slow buildup. Then the action begins with a vengeance. The humor that was in MHI was not in this book, occasionally there is a hint of humor but overall this part was a disappointment to me. Both characters aren't likeable at first, defiantly no Owen or Jake, but they do grow on you. So if you are expecting it to be as good as MHI or HM plan to be disappointed. Now if you like military thrillers you will probably like this book. It has taken me awhile to finish this book, because it did not pull me in at first, I eventually finished it and overall I liked it (3.5 stars) and I will get the next book, but I might wait for a sale. Narrator is good, he does a lot of different voices.

    "Perfect Performance"

    Weile the Story is clichéd and weapon heavy the performance is unbelievably good.
    Action is not enough to describe the carnage in the book.

    "Meh...."

    Predictable story line. Did have enough promise that I hung in till the end, but never really improved on a flat plot. It really seemed like the narrator needed a bit of time to settle into the characters. I found the narration difficult to listen to through the first few hours, but the saving grace by the end.
