    "Not for me. Sorry."

    Received this free audiobook to listen to and comment on the soundtrack version; 1) I don't subscribe to this genre;2) there was nothing about the first chapter that would cause me to be interested in the story; 3) the foul language in the second chapter is an immediate turn off. I wish there was some book ratings with warning of foul or lewd language; 4) the soundtrack was more of a distraction than an enhancement. The music and sound effects were to me like buzzing insects I wanted to swat at to mute so I can concentrate on the story teller. I prefer to let my imagination create the scenarios. Thank you.

    "You are THERE!...(soundtrack edition)"


    I totally enjoyed this book! I LOVED having the soft "background atmospheric" sounds along with the excellent narration. It made me feel as though I were right there alongside the characters on some foreign journey, and swept up with them in their thrilling adventure. There were SO many unexpected twists and turns that I did not see coming! Every chapter ending was a "whaaaat, nooo!!!" jaw dropper for me. It was very easy to get caught up in the moment.

    The story quickly evolves with startling new revelations...one after another (more than a soap opera)...as well as having some pretty good tense nail biting moments. I couldnt wait to find out what happened next. If there was a sequel to this book - I think I'd have to get it.

    I wish that ALL audiobooks had a soundtrack! (can you tell this was my first?) How wonderful that would be! It really does broaden the whole audio experience - like taking it up another notch from band to symphony orchestra.

    This book was gifted at no cost to me in exchange for an honest review.

    Thank you Audible for the delightful treat!

    "Good story, sometimes distracting though"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Innocent Ones [Soundtrack Edition] to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, I didn't read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    To be fair there aren't a ton of characters that seem "good" to choose from in this situation, but I will say that the main character, Jen, grew on me throughout the book. At the beginning I just felt like she was not the sort of person you'd want to be friends with, but then more of her actual life was made apartment and I didn't feel sorry for her as much as I felt I understood her more.


    What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

    Thrilling, Accurate, and Talented


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

    "fact or fiction"


    Any additional comments?

    I would say to be aware that this book has a "soundtrack" that I wasn't a fan of most of the time. There were a few great instances where the sound track really helped the story to remind you where in the story you were, like the sound of the ocean or some gun shots. <br/><br/>However, throughout most the story I found myself getting pretty irritated at having to constantly turn the volume up or down to adjust. Turning it up repeatedly so I could hear the actual story over the soundtrack that was just distracting, or turning down because the soundtrack plus the story was all of a sudden too loud. <br/><br/>I understand the ultimate point of adding a soundtrack to an audible story, getting you more "into" the story and making a full "experience". However, for my personal taste it is unnecessary. To me the whole point of reading or listening to a book is to let your own imagination create and process the details. <br/><br/>Even though most of the time the soundtrack was party background music or police sirens, I wouldn't say that it helped the story and therefore, if it isn't helping, it isn't necessary. But again, that's just my style of listening, the story and narrator though, as usual, were fantastic!

    "well I finished it"

    after a slow start, the story got a little interesting, but not great. the narrator was dreadful. His tone was very annoying. Would not recommend this one.

    "Didn't like the dramatization"
    What disappointed you about The Innocent Ones [Soundtrack Edition]?

    I only listened to the first approx 30 minutes before deciding I couldn't finish the book. It may be a great story, but I did not like the dramatization at all. The narration was too slow, the music too overpowering, & the whole thing just felt too hokey.

    "Soundtrack Edition is better than expected!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Innocent Ones [Soundtrack Edition] the most enjoyable?

    It enhanced the listening experience, For the first 10 minutes or so I found the soundtrack distracting and annoying, mostly because it was so very different from anything else I had ever listened to. But after that it was very good and enhanced the book/performance


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick isn't my favorite narrator but I think that the added soundtrack improved his narration

    "Unlistenable"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Get rid of the sound effects - they are just a distraction and made me lose the plot.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Didn't get that far - I gave up because the sound effects were too annoying.

    "Sound effects didn't help."

    The writing was pretty awful. The story engaging but not very believable. I don't like the addition of sound effects.

    "Interesting with the Sound Effects"

    Originally titled "Down Among the Dead Men," I got the soundtrack version free and I have to admit that I was expecting a little more. For nearly 3/4 of the book, I had to strain to notice any "soundtrack" behind the narration. If there had been a more constant sound, I think it would have been better. The end of the book was greatly enhanced by the soundtrack.

    Overall, this book was interesting, compelling, and worth a read. The characters are interesting, even if Beth gets knocked in the head and requires saving a few too many times. I've got to imagine that in the real world, all that head trauma would have killed her - particularly given her condition later in the book. Still, enjoyable and thrilling.

    "Sound track didn't matter, another good listen with an awesome narrator"

    Most of the time I didn't notice the sound track in the background.
    Could omit in the future.
    As always Scott Brick does a stellar job, with a good storyline who needs back ground noise!
