The narration is horrific. It's like the narrator picked up the book for the very first time. His delivery is all messed up and there are times when he actually messes up, stops, and starts the sentence over. it's very obvious he doesnt read ahead and his pitch of his voice does not follow the events of the story at all. It also sounds like he needs to blow his nose. That said, his Edgar voice is great.

The story itself is an interesting concept, however it is probably exponentially better in book format. I found myself distracted from the story due to the issues mentioned above.

I will probably try to give the paper format a try.

Just the right combination of booze, babes, and bullets to keep any hardcore detective fiction fan happy. Not for the faint of heart or for those easily offended by 1950's racism, sexism, or homophobia.

If you could sum up The Martian in three words, what would they be?

captivating, suspenseful, well-read

What did you like best about this story?

I read this a bit ago, but it has still stuck with me. I loved it so much that I will avoid the movie. There's no way a movie could possibly encompass the emotions this book created.

What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

I have a hard time with a lot of audiobooks. The minute I notice repeated phrases or speech patterns, or bad voices, or cheesy lines, I check out. This book is either entirely free of those, or I was just so sucked in that I didn't notice.

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

Basically the whole freakin thing.

Any additional comments?

There were a few times when I felt the story rambled on, but that's mostly because you just want to know what happens next!
