This is a terrific audio book. Great performance by the narrator. Very entertaining story, very funny and very consistent with the current comic by Ryan North and Erica Henderson (which is one of the best comics being published today).

The Eternal Emperor was back and ready to save his Empire from collapse. Only Sten guessed that something was rotten at the core. The Empire is in chaos. The once-great Imperial Navy has been shattered in battle and lies burning in space, riven by a civil war that threatens to engulf humanity’s future. For the revered Eternal Emperor is not the man his subjects thought him to be—and may not even be human at all.

Would you listen to Sten: Vortex again? Why?

I don't think I could stand to listen to this book again. After the first 6 books were narrated by the terrific Jerry Sciarrio, John Hough was horrible for the seventh book in the series. It's like he doesn't. Understand. How to. Read a. Sentence. I wanted to finish the story, but it was very difficult with this narrator.

What did you like best about this story?

Good penultimate chapter of an enjoyable series. It is too bad we probably won't get the last book in the series.

What didn’t you like about John Hough’s performance?

His terrible. Cadence. And. Stilted. Way of. Reading. And. His mispronounced. Words. Just. Terrible.

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

No, far too long for one sitting.

Any additional comments?

There is one more book in the Sten series, Book 8 - Empire's End, but don't think I could stand to listen to it if it was read by John Hough. Bring back Jerry Sciarrio, please!

Tom Wolfe's best-selling modern classic tells the story of Sherman McCoy, an elite Wall Street bond trader who has it all: wealth, power, prestige, a Park Avenue apartment, a beautiful wife, and an even more beautiful mistress - until one wrong turn sends Sherman spiraling downward into a humiliating fall from grace. A car accident in the Bronx involving Sherman, his girlfriend, and two young lower-class black men sets a match to the incendiary racial and social tensions of 1980s New York City.

I loved the narrator, and the book

I had read this book when it first came out. I have read all of Tom Wolfe's books and this was and is oneof my favorites. I think the narrator did an outstanding job of catching all the New York accents. I highly reccomend this audio book.
