I want to first say that I really like where this story has gone in books 2,3,4. The characters and storyline where excellent, and I highly recommend..Show More » those books to everyone.
With that being said this series has been all over the place. The first book and narrator were horrible. As stated above the next 3 books were great and the narrators did a good job. Then this turd. The story although not as good as the previous 2 books is ok, my problem lies mainly with the bad narration and crappy production values. The 'tele-type' sound effects are beyond annoying.
My biggest issue lies is in the lack of consistency this series has had. If you look at all the books in this series they all have different narrators. Now that can be ok, but then keep the production side of things the same. Listening to this book felt like I was listening to an entirely different series then the last 3 books. And compared to the last book this narrator sucked bad.
After getting through books 2,3,4 in about a week I was looking forward to this one, but am disappointed. I wouldn't tell anyone who have already invested in the other books in the series not to get it, but I think you will see what I am saying after the first hour or so.
If I can make a plea to all the authors and/or publishing companies out there in control of getting these books made in audio format, it's to please understand that book series that are as linear as this one need to have the same narrator throughout. If I could compare it to movies, this is akin to having a different actor play Frodo in each Lord of the Rings movies.
Joe Nobody you have a lot of promise with your stories but if you don't have someone who can give your books the performance they need people won't buy them.

The story as always was good, though it seems that Bishop and Terri are super human, close calls every other chapter yet they always survive.

And every conversation or comment doesn't end in an exclamation point. The cadence and tone in the character speaking is always exactly the same, and the women especially have a sort of chiding note that gets grating.
