Publisher's Summary

Michael Valentine, veteran and former member of an elite private military company, has been recruited by the government to conduct a secret counter-terror operation in the Persian Gulf nation of Zubara. The unit is called Dead Six. Their mission is to take the fight to the enemy and not get caught. Lorenzo, assassin and thief extraordinaire, is being blackmailed by the world's most vicious crime lord. His team has to infiltrate the Zubaran terrorist network and pull off an impossible heist or his family will die. When Dead Six compromises his objective, Lorenzo has a new job: Find and kill Valentine. As allegiances are betrayed and the nation descends into a bloody civil war, Lorenzo and Valentine must face off. Two men. Two missions. Only one will win.

    Story
    "Bronson Pinchot over-acts and tries for an "Oscar"."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No. It's not a "reading" of a book so much as an "Over-Acting" of a book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Well, it was a twisted tale, from multiple view points. That was nice.


    What didn’t you like about Bronson Pinchot’s performance?

    He grossly over acts this book. All I need is a nice clear reading, not an over-dramatic "Performance"…I mean, wow, he is way out-of-control, and off-the-charts, - yelling and screaming and playing to the cheap seats way in the back of the theater! Wow, take it down a bit, please! Just "READ" the book, I don't need a one-man-radio-play! Urgh, some of his over-done scenes were so "hammy-Alabamy" and over-blown it made a mockery of the material. I was cringing as Bronson "Screams" his lines…. please, bronson, just reel it in, and take in down a few notches, let's not over shadow the story with your "Great Acting". OK?


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

    I did cringe with embarrassment and many times I had to turn it down, least someone hear to the ridicules over-dramatic "Blasting-Acting" coming from my speakers.


    Any additional comments?

    I was a little insulted by the overtly "gay" and lisping bad-guy. Sheesh! This is almost a homophobic piece of writing and acting when it came to the "EVIL QUEEN" of a bad guy. Way too over done!

    Story
    "Lots of killing!"

    Two parallel stories that confused me at first. for about a third of the book! I thought one of the stories was a flash back. The two main characters were very similar in personality and how the narrator voiced them.

    The story had lots of shooting but for the most part the characters survived by there skill and not just dumb luck. I recommend this for those that like special forces stories.

    "Death and dismemberment with no plot."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Sycos


    Has Dead Six turned you off from other books in this genre?

    maybe


    What aspect of Bronson Pinchot’s performance would you have changed?

    There are two main male characters which the book switches frequently between... but the voices for both are nearly identical. So it is sometime difficult to discern who is speaking.


    What character would you cut from Dead Six?

    All

    "Bad Language - beware"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not for everyone. Tons of language. Although an enjoyable plot and theme I didn't appreciate the language and mind blowing numbness as illustrated in the graphic killings. Not sure how anyone could read this and feel good about it. It a shame to think that our elite armed forces are anything close to this type of warped mental attitude. Story line, plot and believability were great and well presented.

    "Female? Gay? Forget it."

    Larry Correia simply can't resist using the word "gay" as a derogatory adjective meaning useless, weak, silly. Women in this book do little more than divine when men need their sexual favors and proffer said intimacacies without prompting. And it's hard to get your arms around the main the characters whose main delight in life is killing. I listened to the first third third of the book and walked out. Sorry, Correia really went off the rails on this one.

    "Enjoyable, but not MHI"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Larry Correia is an excellent storyteller, so this book was time well-spent. However, I didn't find this book as outstanding as MHI or Grimnoir. To me, a large part of Correia's talent and enjoyability lies in developing cohesive teams out of his characters. This book did indeed have teams, but they weren't necessarily very cohesive. But it was a fair enough action story.


    What three words best describe Bronson Pinchot’s voice?

    Kind of tired

    "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.

    Story
    "His sitcoms were awful but MAN can he narrate!"

    Having listened to the entire MHI series I was aware of how good Bronson Pinchot is as a narrator but he surprised me a bit with this one. Big Eddie was hysterical to me, the effeminate Lex Luthor was a fantastic bad guy (Picture "Serge" from Beverly Hills Cop as a serial killer). The story was good, I just realized that I didn't watch any TV over the last two days because I was engrossed in the book but there was one thing that I struggled with, that was the first person recounting between Val and Lorenzo, the voices were very similar and I did get confused a few times as to who was talking. I'm in no way saying this is bad, I tend to get confused very easily and would hope this doesn't discourage anyone from listening to this book.

    "Wow! This is the best narration ever!"
    Where does Dead Six rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I had to check because I was convinced several actors were narrating this book. Amazingly good! Worth the price of admission in the first chapter.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Larry Correia and Mike Kupari ? Why or why not?

    I got the next one in the series!


    Have you listened to any of Bronson Pinchot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    We were blown away. This guy is amazing. I really didn't believe one person was doing the narration.

    "Should have read the preview..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I saw a new book from Correia and Pinchot after recently finishing The Grimnoir Chronicles series which I enjoyed throughout. Silly me got the book on that basis alone without reading the preview. Totally my fault, but big mistake.


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

    I will check out more Correia based on how much I enjoyed the Grimnoir series. I haven't tried the Monster Hunter stuff yet. Something tells me I'll be happier with those.Had no prior knowledge of Kupari, but this one didn't exactly make me want to look for his name in the future.


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

    Loved the Usual Suspects indirect reference and Bronson Pinchot is truly an amazing voice talent. People killing lots of other people in the Middle East? Not my thing.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dead Six?

    I would suggest a complete rewrite with more alternative to the history and less reality in the fantasy.


    Any additional comments?

    It's not that this is a bad book, but I prefer my fantasy to be a bit more distant from current events. If you enjoy a good mercenary tale with a tiny bit of fantasy, I'd suggest this one. This definitely taught me to be sure to read the previews before I get anything else again.
