    "Please tell me you're writing book 4!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Homeworld to be better than the print version?

    100%. Have a lot of drive time and not a lot of time to read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Westin


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All the descriptions of the technology


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

    YES.... couldn't put it down!


    Any additional comments?

    Please keep writing and expanding on the series. If you write 20 books I'll buy every one of them.

    Any additional comments?

    I burned through all three books in the series in about two weeks. I love the story. The books themselves keep getting better. Benjamin Darcie is doing a great job narrating. Please don't change your narrator like so many other great sci-fi series have done.
    I wish some of Evan Currie's other books would make it to audible.

    Story
    "enjoyable"
    What did you love best about Homeworld?

    An old enemy returns, no longer an enemy but not necessarily a friend either.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Homeworld?

    I liked how Eric dealt with the old enemy, very much in character.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    For the most part it's very well done, although I found the pronunciation of "bow wake" became a huge irritant. I may be wrong but, the bow of a space vessel (leading edge) should be pronounced, just like the bow of a boat, prow, pram or ocean going vessel (bow and stern). Instead of pronounced like a bow and arrow. As I say it became old fast, then it became a distraction, followed closely by irrigation. The narrator does a great job otherwise.


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

    No it wasn't, there is enough going on, new situations, new tech, enough new to think over, that lent itself well to multiple breaks.


    Any additional comments?

    While "Into the Black" remains my favorite, E.C. keeps the energy and interest high throughout the entire series. It's very well done and very enjoyable.

    "Hard to Put Down"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is one of those books that I couldn't put down. I got really annoyed with the way things were explained over and over, and so many cliches! Regardless, I found myself coming back for more. The story makes me want to know what happens next.

    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? I recently listened to "Augustus" while wandering through the Roman Forum. I'm on my third set of "Sleep-Phones". I've been addicted to audible since 2004... I think my friends are starting to suspect I have a problem ;)

    "Good Listen, but I kept getting confused..."

    This was a good listen, but I kept having to use the "30 Second Reverse Button" on my iPhone to keep up with who was talking, and what was going on... The Narrator seemed to sometimes just say the name of the ship when switching characters without enough of a pause to let you know the people/species talking were about to change... and it seemed like there was a LOT of Character/Race/Species Switching going on that I kept missing.

    What may have confused me more was that I had just finished listening to John Ringo's second book in the "Looking Glass Series", "Vorpal Blade", and the two stories were so similar that I kept getting "What was going on in THIS book" confused with "What had happened in Books 1 & 2 of Ringo's Looking Glass Series"...

    The similarities included throwing out the same Sci-Fi Movie Quotes at every chance (which I don't mind, it's cute sometimes), and the name "Vorpal" was in Currie's Book also, as well as about the same plot of a "Cobbled Together Faster-Than-Light Spaceship", and a lot of other things that kept causing me to sub-consciously think of the Ringo Series, and then realize that the Plot and Characters in THIS book were different... at that point, when I realized I didn't have a clue who was talking or what was going on, I'd have to back WAY up again and concentrate on listening.

    Even though it wasn't a book that I could just listen to "kinda on Autopilot", and it took a LOT of concentration to keep up (Again, some of that may have been MY Fault, since I was in the middle of Ringo's series at the time), once I finished it and "let it settle in my mind", I DID highly enjoy this book in the "Odyssey One" Series. I may go back in a few months and listen to it over again, to make sure I give the story the attention it deserves without constantly thinking about Ringo's books at the same time.

    "Great story...a bit of an annoyance in the read"

    I love Evan Currie's Odyssey series. The story is great and Book 3 left me really wanting to hear the next installment. The only complaint I've got is that as opposed to the first two books, there are some mildly annoying chronic mispronunciations by the narrator (and he's great otherwise). The word "bowshock" is not pronounced like "bow" in "bow and arrow" rather it is pronounced "baʊ" as in the bow of a ship...which is what they're talking about in the story! Couldn't any of the editors catch this prior to publishing the audio?

    Again, a great story...don't let my idiosyncratic annoyance stop you from enjoying it!
