Good story but the narrator was horrible

This was really good book but the guy narrating wasn't good.At times it sounded mechanical and took away from the greatness of the characters as well the story....Not sure if there's a book 2 but I won't be getting it if he's the narrator...

Quick, but good

The characters were so interesting, I almost forgot it was a monster book... that is until the end. Then it reminded me of the kind of monster I wanted to see the whole time. Guess I'll need to buy the second book.

Couldn't do it

I listened to the first 15 minutes or so. I couldn't stand the narrator. The inflection and emotion was over the top, and he sounded mechanical and oblivious to punctuation. This is one I should've listened to the sample.

excellent story, but terrible narration

if you like kaiju, the story is a great setup to a good kaiju story. unfortunately, it's pretty difficult to enjoy Bible's writing at times with a narrator that doesn't understand basic inflection.

good read terrible reader

the story itself was good but the reading was awful. De Master reads like a chihuahua on Crack, everthing is nervous sounding and all the characters are horrible. I'd recommend reading the book bit not the audible.

The narration blemished the story.

As someone who is just beginning a voiceover career myself, particularly with the intention of narrating audiobooks, I am hesitant to be harsh in my criticism of others. However, in this case it cannot be helped. This performance was not good. Perhaps the most damning, though completely honest and accurate, statement I can make is that the reading stole my enjoyment of the book. Imagine watching Forrest Gump, but with Jean Claude Van Damm cast as Forrest. Yeah, it was THAT bad!

Jake Bible's Z-Burbia series is a hilarious, yet intense, read. Andrew B. Wehrlen did a fabulous job narrating those books. Between the writing and the reading I LOVE those books! Sadly, this book didn't have a chance to make that same connection for me. That said, the fault is not solely the narrator's.

This story took a little long to really develop. There was so much innuendo and deception that I couldn't invest myself in any of the characters, for fear that they would soon be removed. Also, some of the characters who stuck around were a bit annoying early on. Even with that, once the plot got moving I definitely enjoyed it. I am just certain that I would have enjoyed it more, and much earlier, if it had a better narrator.

I am hoping the next book will have a different narrator, as I will not purchase it, or anything else, read by DeMaster. Sorry, but I am just being honest.

Too many superstitious religious characters.

All the praying and "oh lord" this, is annoying as hell, there's even a stupid BS "no atheist in fox holes" comment. I mean, it's a sad fact how many silly superstitious God dummies there are in real life, but you don't have to make every character a grown asa adult that believes in fairy tale nonsense, just one none delusional character would of been nice.
