Entire story revolves around Samantha!

Terrible story! I was expecting much more about his family. Instead, Mulder and 2 friends play detective.

DO NOT BUY

Even as someone who enjoys the X-Files a considerable amount, this book was so poorly written I couldn't even finish it. It essentially had nothing to do with the X-Files and felt nothing like the show or even other X Files novels.

As a big x-files fan this was perfect

Would you listen to The X-Files Origins: Agent of Chaos again? Why?

I usually listen to audio books only once but who knows.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, the plot was in line with the series. I wish they would make an episode out of this book.

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

Great narration

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Send the script to Chris Carter so he can make an episode out of it.

Enjoyable but left me wanting.

I read both the X-Files origins books and this one was the better of the two. It's nice to meet the younger skeptical Mulder at the beginning if his search for his sister.

I enjoyed the story and was surprised to find his teenage sidekick to be a fun addition. The story is good and I enjoyed the exploration of his relationship with his father. I am a lifetime X Files fan and always enjoy when they fill in the Canon.

What left me cold though was the ending. A second part of the story is left hanging. When I read the Scully book as I expected her mystery and this one cross over but in a way that does not resolve either. While I enjoyed this one the loose ending bugged me and I found no resolution in the Scully book.

The truth is out there

Love everything X-Files. Getting the back-story of Fox just makes the story more intriguing, Interesting, and fun

It's ok

Like many sequels, this one doesn't live up to the previous books. It's ok.... I was looking for Mayberrys touch on the story. This one doesn't draw you in or bring to life the characters. Can't blame the narrator - he didn't write the story.

Great background for old X-files fans

I watched the x-files during the series prime time run. This book shed light on many unanswered questions I had at the series conclusion. It a easy listing fun book. X-files fans should all love it. Maybe some of this background was covered in the pilot if so I missed it, now after listening to this origins book the whole series makes more since.

Gripping Story.

I enjoyed this story of Fox as a teen. Fox and his friends go on an epic adventure down an unforgettable road. I believe Skinner makes a guest appearance before he is in the FBI. Phoebe's character I had a hard time with as she was rude.

Good, but it could've been great

This was fantastic as far as it went. But I felt there were far too many loose ends left untied, the events that closed this book would make an ideal start to a sequel.
