I've read this book a couple of times, but listening to this book has taken my love for this book to a whole new level. Guidall is an incredible performer: every character gets his or her own voice, and each voice has its own subtle inflections. Without descending into a parody of a feminine voice, he puts just enough flirtiness and snarkiness into Rachel's voice to make me believe it's Rachel speaking. And listening to the book brought out more of the humor than I noticed before. Guidall's rendition of the demented Admiral Kurtz is hilarious! I'm usually bored by battle scenes, but he makes the space battles (written more like submarine battles) as tense and rapid-fire as a movie scene. I'm looking forward to listening to this book again!
