    Story
    "Way over the top and repetitive"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. While the book starts out as a real action thriller with excellent dialogue it devolves into stereotype behavior that keeps repeating the action over and over again.


    Would you recommend Dead Six to your friends? Why or why not?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Finished it but would have preferred a different ending.

    "Little hard to follow"

    This story is well written but is a little hard to follow listening to. This is especially true at the end where the two main characters (both written in the first person) converse quite a bit.

    Bronson Pinchot does a very good job though and is very entertaining especially when performing the villain.

    Story
    "Action, action, action"

    Larry Correia, is, of course, known for cliff hanger chapter endings. His books would be ideal for a serial TV series where the hero is in dire peril at the end of each episode. Luckily, we don't have to wait a week; we just have to wait until the narrator turns the page until we learn how our hero is saved.

    Actually, there's more than one hero. Of course, that's Larry again. I'm not as familiar with Mike Kupari, but his writing fit seamlessly with Larry Correia's. These guys must have bounced ideas off each other and written these books in a spirit of great collaboration. There are moments of quiet when there is some character development, but then hold onto your seat because the action will soon heat up again.

    The plot is tight but there are undertones of "something is going on here". And sure enough, something was going on as we find out. I'm not even going to try to summarize the complex plot. And, I think there are too many spoilers in any summary I could attempt.

    Bronson Pinchot did a very good job in narrating. At times I thought he became a bit "robotic" but then, I'm not sure how else he could have performed those parts. And the more I think about it, the more I believe he did them as well as they could have been done.

    Bottom line, I recommend this book. After all, I downloaded the second in the series as soon as I finished this one. And I'll be watching for the third book, you can bet on that.

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

    He has a knack for voices and characters. His pacing is fantastic and he adds an element of great acting when the dialogue or situation warrants it.

    Story
    "Over all, very good."

    Occasional mispronunciation of military terms and gun names, but otherwise great. For example, saying M.K. instead of "Mark" for things like the Mk. 17 rifle. Other than that minor not, it was very good.

    "Riveting narrator brought a good story to life"

    I love Larry Correia's Monster Hunters series (the action, the stories, the description of all weapons, good dialogs, the romance), so I gave this book a try. The story is told in two protagonists (Lorenzo and Valentine) perspectives, which is interesting way to learn about them from each protagonist's perspective. I like the ending, and can't wait to read the next book.

    The narrator Bronson Pinchot sealed the deal; he is excellent in all accents (northern, southern, Boston, middle east, Asian, and anything you can think of), male and female voices, expressing emotions, shouting, excitement, flirtation, embarrassment, etc, and make this story easy to follow, and engrossing from beginning to the end. I will definitely listen to other books by Bronson Pinchot with no hesitation!
