    "I love stories about mercs. I hated this one"

    My goodness. It is hard to know how much of this is the writing and how much is the performance. I suspect the latter is the bigger issue. You have two groups of mercenaries, but the lead characters spend so much time feeling sorry for themselves, whining about their fate, that the story gets painful. The purpose for the story gets lost in the whining, self-loathing, and complaining. I realize these are fictional stories. We expect the merciless, gun-toting, never-miss killer. When these characters start to whine, you lose me.

    "Loved the book loved the narration"
    Where does Dead Six rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm a huge fan of the MHI series and so I was very happy to see another book out by Larry Correia the narrator really drew me in and make the story shine. All the characters have distinct voices, such that I could picture what the various characters would look like and the rhythem he sets for the story is just brilliant. I don't usually follow narrators, but I'm totally checking out all the books he's read because I'm sure that while they might not have been my first choice as authors or subject matter just the fact that he's read them is going to have me doing a sample listen.


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

    Bronson Pinchot nailed the narration. Completely made the characters come alive thru the application of his voice the expression he fed into the reading.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Great Book"

    This book is written in 1st person from the alternating perspectives of two characters, Lorenzo and Valentine. Just keeping that in mind will help you follow the story the first hour.

    Like the MHI books, the story isn't that predictable but it is full of writing cliches (like how the romances develop). And also like the MHI books, the cliches somehow don't ruin the story at all. I keep thinking it should, but the stories are just good fun. The authors just do a good job making the moments believable and compelling, cliche or not. And I guess they are "cliche" because there is something in those themes that we find compelling enough to revisit time and again.

    Bronson Pinchot is interesting. I loved his work on the Grimnoir Chronicles. I liked his work on this book too. With some of the voices, though, I thought he used great artistic license (e.g., a combination of infomercial voice and Office Space boss voice for one character). His voice for a few of the characters had me bursting out laughing (like Eddie). His voices for the two main characters were perfect. I liked the voice of reaper a lot too.

    A lot of his accents for foreigners sound oddly like a character from an old t.v. show called Perfect Strangers.
    Hmm . . .
    ;)

    "Returning this one"

    I was duped... This is science fiction military. UN military forces - ETC. Even if it was something I would have liked - I could barely continue listening the narrator. He wasn't bad - I just couldn't slip into his voice. After 20 minutes of listening - I was done. The story could not hold my attention. I've listened to books outside of my genre, but this is not one of them. Look at the other books bought by people who bought this one. Ghost stories and sci-fi. My Bad.... I saw the carrot of reviews praising it as a Military super book and 5 star ratings, and I bit down. It's pseudo private military something or another.

    "A Highly Rated Book that I Returned"

    Nearly a perfect 5 rating, with two story lines and filled with action. It was hard to follow and seemed like an action book for gun nuts. .45 revolver, 44 magnum, 9 mm tricked up and dozens other guns. If this had been library book, I would have thumbed threw the book toward the end to find the point. 30 some hours I was not going to listen to find the the final piece of the plot.

    "If you are not familiar with Correia's books..."

    ..it's time to stop and listen. Larry's books are full of action; with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. His Warbound series was so exciting, that I went through it so fast to find out the resolution of the next conflict, that I had to relisten to the entire series at a more leisurely pace.

    What I am saying is listen (or read) his books, you can't go wrong. Oh yes, congrats Mike on working with Larry. Good choice Larry.

    "A good story ruined by bad narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. I have listened to several other Correia titles read by Bronson Pinchot; although he has always had an odd style it hasn't been enough to ruin the story, but in this one he has gone totally off the rails. His cadence is ridiculous. Why does he voice half of the characters as though they are idiots? Why does his narration slow to a crawl during big action scenes? For example. I. Lifted. The. Gun. And. Shot. Him. In. The. Head. Ridiculous. A shame because the story seems really good and I will not be able to finish it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A solid plot.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bronson Pinchot’s performances?

    Not after this.


    Was Dead Six worth the listening time?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    A real shame because Correia is a great author. Check out Monster Hunter International instead.

    Potter in NC. Intense books allow for creative freedom. Busy hands+distracted brain=free forms.

    "Too Much"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not at all sure. There is violence and there is thuggery. I only managed an hour of the book so I won't try to judge the whole book--but--all I heard in the first hour was the thuggery.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something that doesn't say the human race has fallen in the shitter.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bronson Pinchot’s performances?

    Juries out on this.


    What character would you cut from Dead Six?

    Jeeze that's a tough call. If I heard one that I might possible identify with I'd keep that one.
