What did you love best about LYCCYX Episode 1: The Declaration?

Thing I like about this book series is that it is designed to be done in one sitting. The book is setup in a journal entry format. I like this style for this kind of scifi genre because it helps me understand the perspective from Zander, Kate and other characters. More so the main character.

What was one of the most memorable moments of LYCCYX Episode 1: The Declaration?

The scene where Zander and his foe meet up and are faced to either fight or let one another go. The two friends have two agendas that butt heads. It's great to see the intensity build.

Have you listened to any of Mike Paine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I actually listened to Ep. 2 before Ep. 1...so yeah technically I have. Mike has a nice radio voice that IMO fits well with the story. I'm not bored or anything like that and my attention is kept.

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

The hard decision to fight his friend because there is a higher cause.

Any additional comments?

I'm looking forward to more installments.

Where does LYCCYX Episode 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I haven't listened to too many audio books, but I have listened to many podcasts and lesson plans. This is ranks high for me. It's not boring. The narrator has a great radio style voice and reads the story well.

What did you like best about this story?

I read the eBook first. Having the story read to me helps bring the story to life more. The story itself I like is that it is set up like a journal of a soldier trying to find himself.

Which character – as performed by Mike Paine – was your favorite?

Zander, the main character.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

For me this was a good icing on the cake for the LYCCYX series. Can't wait for the movie!

Any additional comments?

I'm looking forward to seeing more from Brian Barber.
