    "Good Story, bad narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story was typical Griffin. Even with the flaws, it was enjoyale to listen to. A little sex mixed in with the action.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As with all Griffin novels, the historical context is compelling. Given the flying Tigers were real, pretty presumptuous to make Canady the first ace of the AVG.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration was pretty bad. Rossutto has about three male voices which he recycles through out the book. With the exception of Canady, the voices don't match the characters and his inflection doesn't match the tone of the story. Worst was Witaker who is supposed to be a cynical young man. Instead he sounds like an enthusiastic, niave school boy. I found it funny when two characters with the same voice up to that point in the story appear in the same scene--one of the two characters suddenly changes voice. I do give him credit for the female voices. Even though read by a man, they actually sound feminine, a skill many narrators don't have. I wish the publishers would use two readers--male and female.


    Any additional comments?

    This audio book is broken into chapters and subchapters. i.e. Chapter 4; 1, 2, 3... Each subchapter should be on a seaparate track, to make stepping through the books easier when I lose my place. Book 1 of the series is formatted this way.

    "here we go again"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    another reader


    What other book might you compare The Secret Warriors to and why?

    any other Griffin Books that have Scott Brick or Hill as the readers, they are fantastic reader


    How could the performance have been better?

    use a better reader that does not put you to sleep


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment, that who ever is reading comments by Customers does not conduct an investigation and never ever let Mchael Russotto read another Griffin Book

    "Story was just OK...narration was terrible"

    Wasn't one of Griffin's best, but it was OK. The narration on the other hand was awful! I would pass on this one.
