    "Fantastic Listen!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bloodhype to be better than the print version?

    I love listening to a good book. However, I also own the paperbacks as well and love to read them when I have time. Over and over again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kitten because she was daring and adventurous.


    What about Stefan Rudnicki and Alan Dean Foster ’s performance did you like?

    He gave the characters life with the different voices.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I listened to the entire book one night at work.

    "Humerous"

    I long time fan of the Pip and Flinx Adventures, I was delighted to see that audible would add the entire series. What was even better is that that would retain continuity by having Stefan Rudnicki read the entire series. I enjoyed this book in particular, as it is less serious than the others and has a definite homorous slant to it. A relaxing enjoyable adventure.

    "The Second Book Written But weak on Pip and Flinx"

    A Great Story but more about the Police than Pip and Flinx. This was the second book written to include Pip and Flinx. I did enjoy the description of the Tar-Aiym in this book.
    Good read for a stand alone story.

    "Not really a "Pip and Flinx Novel""

    Much like Trouble Magnet, Bloodhype is a story set in the same Universe as Flinx, and he appears in the book, but little of the story involves him. It seems like ADF added Flinx as an afterthought. I have half-an-hour left to listen to, and there hasn't been one thing done by Flinx that couldn't have been done by another character.

    Otherwise, the story is OK. Not particularly riveting, but not a bad listen.

    "Great Story, Lousy Narrator"

    The Pip and Flinx series is wonderful, and I was looking forward to revisiting my favorites in audio, but Stefan Rudnicki is absolutely the wrong narrator for these books. Bloodhype is my favorite novel in the series, definitely worth five stars, but the deep, stilted narration kept me from listening past chapter one. Since Rudnicki narrates the whole series, I will not be wasting any more credits. It's too bad that Alan Dean Foster's fantastic characters and writing are ruined in the audiobooks.

    "Weakest of the books in the series"

    This book was a real disappointment for me, after reading the previous books. The main female character was incredibly attractive but otherwise a foolish, impulsive, just plain annoying person to read about. I don't know if being a woman makes it worse, but perhaps so. In addition, this is a pivotal book about Flinx and he is so peripheral and the book is written looking at him from without rather than within. I was left wanting to know what had happened to him during the story, even when the full book was finished. And I knew way more than I wanted to know about the dingy female character. Oh well, keep reading. The next book is back on course.

    "A bit misrepresented"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I wish Audible mentioned that this was actually the 11th book in the series. It may have been the 2nd written but its not in the correct order.


    What was most disappointing about Alan Dean Foster’s story?

    Flinx was hardly in it


    Which character – as performed by Stefan Rudnicki and Alan Dean Foster – was your favorite?

    Captain Mal
