Publisher's Summary

A strange body that refuses to obey you; a weird game you can't quit until your contract expires; a world teeming with powerful and very real enemies. The game in which your reputation and faction relationship are the only things that matter. These are the conditions of the agreement Ruslan signs without reading.

The only thing he remembers is that he's been contracted to command a space fleet in a brand-new game he knows nothing about. Objective: to survive for six months. After having made some inevitable newbie mistakes, Ruslan has to rethink his strategy, dropping traditional gaming conventions. But what will it cost him? What new trials and tribulations await him that even the game designers have failed to anticipate?

    Story
    "Good story. Super bad audio."
    If you could sum up Sector Eight in three words, what would they be?

    1second pause after each sentence. Every sentenses with the same intonation. Is that even a human reading? This is horrible. No quality control on this one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sector Eight?

    I read the book. I know this story is really good.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Neil Hellegers?

    Someone did a bad job with the audio. If i were M. Hellengers, I would be quite upset.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the audio format is damaged or raw. Wait for a corrected version or read the book.

    "the story got better as it went along"

    the story did start a bit slow, and a bit confusing, but picked up and previous things were explained. by the end I was upset that I had to wait for the next book.

    Story
    "badly translated?"

    I am not sure if this was just badly translated or poorly writen. the reader did a good job but the author tends to reuse phrases and the story progression moves so fast in terms of time that it keeps throwing me out of the story.

    "It was a rough start"

    But I've listened and gave it a try, this was my first real galactic audio book I was skeptical but ended up loving it. This was a great novel and regret not listening to it sooner!

    Story
    "Loved it..."

    As some other reviewers have stated the narration is just a bit bumpy, but you can tell that this is due to they way this book was written/translated. After I got use to the authors writing style this was a delight and I will be listening to the next book in the series.

    "Surprised me how quickly I was pulled in!"

    Expecting yet another short story, that was quickly written. This author pulled me right into this story and I could not wait to get to the next part.

    Story
    "Unexpected and enjoyable"
    What made the experience of listening to Sector Eight the most enjoyable?

    The narrator did a tremendous job of making the book seem engaging, where I have heard others sounding borderline melancholy, Neil kept you on tenterhooks, that worked brilliantly with the writing style.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ruslan


    What about Neil Hellegers’s performance did you like?

    His narration keeps you engaged.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Some of the one-liners before launching into battle were brilliantly placed.


    Any additional comments?

    Buying Book 2 and 3 and hopefully up to 18.... I mean, its possible for the author to pump out 15 books in the next twenty hours and get them narrated right? I don't mind having Neil on the phone reading them to me to be honest.
