Would you consider the audio edition of The Enemy of My Enemy to be better than the print version?

I rarely get time to sit down and read books so I do prefer audio books for that reason. I do love to read, but I have more time available when driving to listen to books.

What did you like best about this story?

The characters commitment to each other.

What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He gives depth to the characters by the different voices and emotions in his narration.

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

I could break this one up more than the first book.

Any additional comments?

While I did find the story very compelling, I also felt that the independent vigilantly violence got a bit out of hand to the point that it was hard to stay quite as connected to the story. Made it more unbelievable.
