Great intro to the clan invasion

I read these books when I was a kid and still to this day love the characters. It was so much more enjoyable listening to it being performed in this audio form. Stackpole is a great writer.

Good book. Good Series. Suffers from abridgement.

I can't complain about the reader. His performance is good and his voice is similar to that of the author's. It's the abridgment that hurts. It makes the story difficult to follow and damages its overall impact. Maybe another Battletech series would've been a better choice to record. One with fewer characters and a more linear narrative would've been easier to fit into the this three-hour format. For this reason I would've rated it even lower but this is the only Battletech series available in audio, and I enjoy the line. So if your looking for Btech to play in the car, this is it. Check it out. Then go buy the paperbacks. I'm sure Fasa and Stackpole would appreciate the shekels.

So cheesy, but great Battletech backstory cheese.

Have really enjoyed the Blood Legacy books so far. The sound FX are cheesy, but they seem well placed and add immersion.

good mech adventure

I loved it, the older audio was still a bit grainy, but it was clear enough to where you could certainly get the story across, very exciting story.

It's not the entire book.

this is an abridged version. a lot of important parts were left out. takahashi kurita was completely omitted and you only get about half the battle for Luthien.

Poorly done

Who ever did the editing knows nothing about the Battletech universe. They missed to many of the important subtleties that made these books great to read. The audio version has been a great disappointment.

The abridged version cuts too much out

The performance and story are great but the abridged version just cuts too much out of the original book. It’s unfortunate that battle tech audio books are all abridged.

Good story but room for improvement

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

Not really

What was one of the most memorable moments of Battletech?

having to back up and listen to some parts again to try to make out what was being said over the sound effects.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Christopher Graybill?

Yes

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Part two in the Clan Invasion Saga

Any additional comments?

Don't make abridged books. It's a rip-off.

Sound effects.... ouch!!!

So the story was not bad... short and simplistic but not bad. The problem was the crazy sound effects. I’m very serious about this. You might have the story playing at your normal volume levels but once they have the sounds effects it became painfully loud. It was to the point where you could not hear or make out the reader’s voice. I tried to do the book justice by playing with the volume throughout the book but it got to the point where my ears were ringing. This seems to be a constant throughout the series. To give an idea, back in the 90’s and maybe early 2000’s there were some commercials on TV that were significantly louder than the normal programming. Rules/laws were made to regulate the volume levels. This book was similar or even louder. Luckily this is the only series where I’ve had this problem.
