Substandard Editing

Having read or listened to the first two books of the series, Extinction fell right in step with my expectations and I enjoyed it quite a bit. If this is to be the final installment (assuming a trilogy), then I think things were wrapped up pretty well.
However, this Audible version is an abomination. I think the story and narrator will suffer unnecessarily due to the horrendous job someone did (or didn’t do) editing the audio. It really is as if the raw audio recording was uploaded and published, sight unseen (so to speak). The narrator makes a good number of blunders, which I imagine is common for everyone, but I also imagine he expected those to be easily edited out, which they should have been. There’s really no excuse for such a bad editing job. It takes away from the flow of the story. if I was the author or narrator, I’d be livid.

Extinction 3

I guess the narrator does make or break the book.This was not good from the first few sentences.The narrator repeated lines over and over in the beginning.I just couldn't get in to it.Nigel Patterson was much better than Brad Gillam. for this series.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Worst finale ever

This narrator was the absolute worst. His voice was horrible and did not capture the characters property as the first two books had. He completely ruined this series.

Bad Audio Quality and Performance

The audio quality is terrible and the narrator, Brad Gilliam, spends all the action scenes screaming the lines and the volume goes crazy loud and makes the already poor sound worst and unbearable to listen to.

horrible narrator

I struggled to finish this due to the new narrator for the last book in this series. He yells way too much, mispronounces a lot of words, and they left the mistakes in this edit. The first time I heard him reread a section I thought my recording was bugged until it happened a few more times throughout the story. This is also the weakest of the 3 books. The writing only improves slightly when the author is telling a back story and doesn't last past the filler. Overall worth a read if you have some credits. I wouldn't purchase this book though.

I still love the story but this narrator sucks. I

I don't know what happened to the narrator of the first two books but this guy should never have been allowed to narrate the story. He can't even pronounce simple words properly. without a doubt he single handedly ruined this book. I couldn't even finish it. He didn't even try to use accents for the characters. calling this narrator amateurish is an insult to amateurs

why the change in narrators?

The story remains strong tho Camp when from reformed gangster back to a gangster needing reform.
My main issue is this books narration. I my be me but I take issue when mid series they change narrators, especially when it's mostly based in England and the original 2 books were narrates by a Brit. Now we have an American narrator that can't pull off the British lingo.
Lastly, again it might be me but production quality was subpar. Mid book you could hear the narrator turning pages, swallowing and other background noise.
I will finish the series as it come out because I really enjoy the storyline. Just hoping the production quality gets back on track.

Different Narrator

The switch of narrators from the first two books in series really changed the story for me. The characters felt different to me.
Nothing against the narrator of this book, had he been the narrator from the start I'm sure I would have enjoyed this more.

The narrator is crap and book3 was rushed out

good point story is good and I got my credit back.
its set in the UK and first 2 books are narrated by a Brit but then in all their wisdom for book 3 is narrated by an American why?
He's crap I have nothing against Americans some of the narrators like R.C Bray and Sean Runnette are great
The narrator sounds like he did it in his bedroom on an 8 track. I'm surprised you didn't hear his mum in the background telling him to be quiet as you can hear the papers rustling, echoes. I think he was eating as he Narrated it as well. hope they re release it with the original narrator

Hell on earth

Oh dear. An excellent book by an excellent author ruined by an appalling performance. What went wrong? Suddenly we have an American reader reading a British story unable to pronounce names of places and things. “Slough” becomes “Slow” , “Petrol Station” becomes “Patrol Station” and so on. It is clear that no one listened to this book before its release as all the mistakes, repeats and I think, someone drinking coffee are left in to irritate the listener. When you have invested time and money listening to the first two books in this excellent cycle and look forward to this one and get this, disappointing is not the word, it might be regarded as Hell on earth in fact.

I love this series but whoever found the narrator.

the narrator is awful and means the book is cheapened to the point I couldn't finish it and got a refund. if they can't work if they are narrating a man or woman or realise the town slough in the UK is not pronounced slow then they shouldn't be able to narrate. please get the old narrator back....
