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.

    "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.

    "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 . . .
    ;)

    "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.

    "Dead brilliant"

    I read the first bit about three months ago and gave up, I was too busy with other things to understand who was who and got confused. Now I started the book in a two hour stint and everything fell into place. From then on it's been fantastic, Correia's humourous and fast-paced style (without the special gifts this time), in a realistic thriller setting that grips you by the throat and doesn't let go. Brilliant. I'm always stingy with the 5 stars but this book deserves it.
