    "Best family story for our daily school commute!"

    A great family friendly story that kept us riveted and made our commute fly! The story allowed us to discuss themes from greed, friendship, death and loyalty after each session. Even as an adult, I enjoyed this book.

    Story
    "Kirby kind of ruined it"

    The story was amazing, as all of the books in the series is. Richard Paul Evans is a favorite.

    My problem was the narrator, Kirby Heyborne. It's almost as if Kirby tried to reinvent many of the characters. I am wondering if he bothered to listen to the previous audio books before recording. Oftentimes, his narration became a distraction to the story. Instead of studying and going with what Fred Berman had already established (speaking styles, voice inflections, etc.) Kirby went his own direction with many of the characters. This would be well and good, had this been book 1, and Kirby was setting the tone of the series, but it wasn't. Personally, I think this is the sign of a good narrator, and a good actor. And Kirby is neither. I am grateful that this is the only book in the series that Kirby was involved with.

    "Good Story And Series !"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Battle of the Ampere to be better than the print version?

    The Audio version is quite exciting to listen to and captures the action more succinctly than just a plain reading does. Also for those who have sight problems or are not feeling well enough to read the audio version is wonderful


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was exciting with plenty of action all the time. I thought that the emotional parts about the death of Wade were way over the top. In real life you grieve far more privately but Hollywood style thinking make the survivors more like victims and the real victim is used selfishly to make the other characters more attention-seekers and important than Wade's death. The romance part is over the top as well considering the young age of many readers.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kirby Heyborne?

    My biggest gripe with this book was the narration. I would prefer a more "robust" voice with more bass, stressing the action scenes and the dialogue seemed very stilted to me.


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

    I could listen to it in one sitting if I had the time and inclination to do so, but I prefer to listen to one or 2 chapters after the evening meal.


    Any additional comments?

    Pleas get a better narrator for the future books.

    "wow. i should have quit early."

    the narroration is excellent. the story is strained to the point that i cannot fathom what would actually drive these kids to keep going on the path of guerilla warfare across the globe.

    "Awesome story, horrible narrator"

    The series is all of five stars, but they choose the wrong person to narrate this one.

    Story
    "Forced myself to finish it"

    this story committed that most egregious sin of audio books end replaced an established talented narrator with some hack that made this one of the most excruciating audio books I have ever listen to to.
    the story itself was ok. Not as good as the first two but much like movies that have a long run often with book series the third book is a bit of a dragon. What made it truly horrible was the narrator. This man should never be allowed to under the spoken word again.
    his characters we're almost totally one dimensional. In fact, with the exception of those who spoke with a Hispanic accent, Dr hatch, and the chairman, they almost all had the same voice.
    my recommendation is do not even bother with this audiobook. Go to the library, check out the hard copy and take the time and read it. When you're done with that go get the Jade Dragon on audible because they went back to the original narrator for that one.
