Didn't Do It For Me

I listened to this right after Bussa's other work, 'Letters to Eula', which was fantastic, so it may have colored my perception of 'JETTISON!' a bit. Overall, this just didn't work for me. The characters were all a bit flat and unsympathetic, while the President came across as a caricature of an evil politician. The historical setting was a nice element, I especially liked how Bussa incorporated the flawed design and real crashes of the Lockheed Electra planes into the story. The narration done by Ken Clark Smooth Voiceovers was OK. He has a good sounding voice, but his delivery was a bit deadpan, especially when doing the dialogue.

I have listened to a number of Bussa's other works, all of which I enjoyed, especially 'Letters to Eula', but this one just didn't do it for me unfortunately.

Just... Wow!

Full of political drama and a president who seems to have no morals, this short story is full of tension.

At the end I was left feeling amazed, a bit shell shocked, and oddly satisfied. I enjoyed it from beginning to the end, I was intrigued and horrified. Highly recommended.

The character voices are well done and the pacing of the narration helps to build to the drama of the story.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

VERY INTRIGUING POLITICAL THRILLER!

Cool political thriller!
Very gripping, was captivated from beginning to end. Short/easy listen, but jam packed with Bussa awesomeness. What IF that were to happen? Would it work? A deadly game to play!

Great listen, definitely recommended :)

Decent story, not a great listen

The story is good enough, but it was a bit difficult to appreciate in audio. The narration sounded read, not performed, and the pacing was very inconsistent. Most often it was a bit too slow, and every so often rushed.

Scary

This book envisions a time and place where the President of The United States comes up with a scheme to reduce the prison population by shipping them to an isolated location. He also envisions how to completely remove them also.

This book brings up too many frightening possibilities of what could happen.

The story while short was well put together. The narration was great.

This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of a fair review.

Another Good one

I need more of Michael Budsa's books, I love the twists he puts in at the end, and this book definitely doesn't dissappiont.

I would have liked it too be longer, and to hear more schemes the President had been a part of, maybe, we could have a prequel to this one

I enjoyed this look into a future where the president finds a new way to empty the prisons.It could have been longer for me! Ken Cark was a fine narrator.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.
