This book starts where the last book left off. The characters have been developed enough by now that the story is easy to get into. I think each book gets better, so I enjoyed this one more than the first-maybe because I already know the characters.

This book is more complex than the others and is super fun and interesting! The story is better, the writing is better, and I even think the audio performance is better. I really enjoyed this one a lot!

As a reader and listener of mostly hard science fiction, it took me a while to get into the story. But it's well done and captured my interest enough to listen to all 3 books. Each book gets better.

Maybe it took some getting used to, but I enjoyed this second book more than the first one. The story was more interesting, and the main character became a bit more sympathetic. It's violent, profane, and action-oriented. Good fun if you're into reading about a seedy person doing seedy things, but then aims for a tiny bit of redemption.

Starts off a little slowly, but once the ship battles start, the action doesn't slow down. The battle action sequences are superb. Looking forward to the next book in the series!

Very quick, simple read with a strange third person "observer" narrative. Straight forward action with some tough-guy humor, but no subtly at all.

If you're looking for a fast-paced, simple read to distract you for a few hours, "Remo Went Rogue" fits the bill.

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

Wild Entertaining Thriller

What other book might you compare The Doll to and why?

Hard to compare this to other books because Munroe is so unique. But perhaps the closest are the Beatrix Rose books.

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

She brings emotion and depth to a character that is so different that it might be difficult to form a good picture of.

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

Yes, all the Vanessa Michael Munroe books are great!

Any additional comments?

Another wild and entertaining ride from Taylor Stevens. Her Munroe character is fascinating and complex: the product of a horrific childhood. Hillary Huber does a masterful job as the narrator of the Audiobook version. If you like complex, messy thrillers, I highly recommend "The Doll" and the other Munroe books and audiobooks.

Engaging story and great narrator.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Aster Wood and the Lost Maps of Almara: Aster Wood, Book 1?

I enjoyed the part where Aster frees Jade.

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

No, but I really enjoyed this one.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This was a fun, quick listen. It's a wild ride with interesting ideas, but it lacks depth and character development. While it was entertaining, it was not very believable, so it was a bit difficult to get completely immersed in the story. Still, it was enjoyable and I might try another Vincent book at some point.

Would you be willing to try another book from Steve P. Vincent? Why or why not?

Yes, I'd be willing to try another of his books. I like the subject matter.

What aspect of Jeffrey Kafer’s performance would you have changed?

While his performance was pretty good, he didn't change his voice much between characters, so it made it a bit more difficult to follow.

Could you see The Foundation being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Perhaps.
