Skip this one

Bad writing. Boring. Repetitive use of phrases. Could not hold my attention at all.

Worse narration. No. Just no. This is quite literally a woman reading a book and not “performed by”. So many mispronunciations and all monotone.

Cannot finish. I have it until halfway through “book 2” and was still insanely bored. The listener should not be bored when the characters are running for their lives.

The Narrator sounded like my mom

It seemed like a good story, couldn't get past the narrator. It seemed like my mom reading me a bedtime story. There was too much effort to make her voice seem intense. Couldn't get passed it. A better narrator could have made this story.

Good

I usually don’t like stories that jump between different sites/people, yet this series does it quite well. Characters are all interesting. There is action, but you kinda know its always gonna go to the good guys, if not right away, eventually.

Lame story

Narration was awful and the story line was unbelievable. Author didn’t appear to have much knowledge of the reality of military operations.

bad writing. Worse narrating

this series was poorly written but what really killed it for me was the uninspired narration. a complete lack of enthusiasm along with inaccurate inflections and punctuation made this series nearly unlistenable. one other thing that annoyed me personally to no end but may not bother other readers was the narrator's pronunciation of the word "roof". it's roof, not ruff
