    "Ho-hum"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better characters, better plot, tighter writing, narration with differentiation.


    What was most disappointing about Jay Allan’s story?

    The premise is fine. The last chapter gives a history of the universe leading up to this story. It is almost more interesting than the story. The battles are not engaging, and I didn't care about the people. They were not distinct or well-rounded, and they did not include the interesting characters in the first prequel.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Liam Owen and Sci-Fi Publishing ?

    Mark Boyett, Jeff Gurner, Jeffrey Kafer, Nick Sullivan.
    Sci-fi needs to do a bit more cleanup on their recordings. As has been mentioned in another review, there are at least 5 repeats in the audio (the last line or two is inexplicably repeated). Then the readings of the chapter numbers comes so closely on the heels of the last words of the paragraph that you think it really reads: "...and the ship blew up chapter seven." That is an editing/production flaw that seems very amateur. Aren't there industry standards or something about how many seconds to allow between ending a chapter and introducing the next?


    What character would you cut from Bitter Glory?

    Doesn't matter. None were distinct or care-worthy. I am sorry for the deaths but I was never involved so I couldn't get worked up about what's-his-name's grief.


    Any additional comments?

    Jay Allan has a good idea. Perhaps some courses on story writing, or some good work with a great editor would help. Any of my Master's Thesis chair people could help.
