Did you know you can put in a set of Ear-Buds, slap your Hearing Protectors over them, and Mow the lawn, Weed-Eat, etc, without your book being drowned out by engine noise? OR, you can just let the horses in the yard, and THEY'LL mow and weedeat (literally) FOR YOU!
I checked my iPhone's Audible App several times to make SURE the speed was set to "X1". I even paused the book and opened another book to make sure something else wasn't wrong with the speed setting (Nope, other books played fine). Mr. Rheinstrom just read through this book like he was narrating an Auction or something. EverythingIsReadSoFastYouHaveNoIdeaWhat'sHappening!!!
Several sentences are read multiple times, back to back... I am left with a feeling that this book was pushed through at an INCREDIBLE pace for some reason.
Mr. Rheinstrom obviously has a LOT of talent, I've listened to another book he's read, but he fires through this book like it's stuck on Fast Forward. Editing didn't catch a LOT of parts... in at least one place it was like he realized he'd fumbled the sentence and kinda ended up TRYING to make it sound funny, and then the sentence is immediately repeated a totally different way, with the "First time through" not removed... kinda like 'Bloopers Parts' got left in..
At first I thought the plot and story wasn't making sense because it was read so incredibly fast, but then I realized the time line was jumpy, and the story line and planning just wasn't thought out... it's hard to explain... nothing seems to make sense, plans aren't thought out, a year elapses between one sentence and the next... just, strange.
the narrator repeates lines, and talks way to fast. set the talk speed to .90x.
the story continues and is well writen, theres action and developments that expand the story. I enjoyed it just need to set the narrator speed.
Might have been okay but
About the same
The quality of sound is terrible.Goes from loud to not being able to hear it
If the reader goes too fast for you, slow it down to .75. That is no problem, at least on my Iphone,
This series has a great storyline, but it makes me wonder if it was edited. There were many simple errors that could be easily corrected that would improve the flow and general feel of the story. I have recommended the story to another sci-fi fan, but also warned them about the distracting mistakes in the writing.
The two books in this series are written well, and the narrator does a great job individualizing how each character appears in tone and accent. However, the pace of reading is too quick and can be distracting. To be honest, if the vocal characterization wasn't so good, I would have given the performance just two stars and docked the overall score as well.
I recommend listeners grab the sample before purchasing. If you can overcome the pace of the reading, this is a pretty good book.
"A fix for this speed reader."
It seems we are stuck with this narrator, but I have found that listening to him at half speed makes it far more enjoyable.
Hope this helps others that are also enjoying the story.
"story is so good apart from the narrator!"
The only thing I found wanting with this series is the narration, a story this good needs a narrator as good, Liam Owen would have been perfect.
