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

Don't know, only did the audio edition.

What did you like best about this story?

Interesting story premise, the level of detail and character development.

What does Christian Rummel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He does an excellent job with the voices and building in depth and drama.

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

Yes

Any additional comments?

Excellent book, Could not stop listening. I am not a big fan of the whole "Zombie Apocolypse" craze, I love a good action/thriller and this entire series doesn't disappoint!

If you could sum up Sua Sponte in three words, what would they be?

Very VERY thorough

How could the performance have been better?

The tone and tempo of the narrator reminds of the 40's and 50's. Seems very artificial and uptight. Needs to be more relaxed and flowing.

Any additional comments?

Tons of great history. I think I was looking at a more entertaining look at the Rangers, stories, etc. This was a very ra-ra-ra cheerleading piece and as the other reviewer mentioned, a great recruiting book.

This book content-wise was kinda cool.
Narration sucked rocks! This guys cannot keep his character voices straight and accents were pretty bad.
Compound that with a VERY slow moving book and this makes for a tedious listen. I have been trying to finish it but after 12 hours I am having a hard time.
I know this author is good, I have read his stuff before. it just felt like he was trying too hard to draw this one out.

This has got to be easily the funniest book I have ever read!
Yeah his narration style is annoying to say the least but I don't think anyone but the author could have done it justice.
Profane...yes, sexist...doesn't even come close to describing his degradation of women. This book was a guilty pleasure and extremely entertaining!!!

This was an enjoyable book AFTER you got past the crummy narration.

This was an excellent book about UDT and SEALS despite the poor narration. Besides mispronunciations, noises in the background, and a rather dull reading voice it still managed to be a good book. This is an interesting counter-point to Richard Marcinko's accounts on the same subject.

Love this book

This book was great. Definitely get the unabridged version of this title.
The only part of this book I did not enjoy at all was the narration. He has got to be one of the most dull, monotone narrators ever!

I cannot get enough of Demille's work and Brick's narration. A great story with one heck of a twist. I found myself once again circling the block or siting in the parking lot to hear what happened next.
