Dude reads FAST!

I checked my iPhone's Audible App several times to make SURE the speed was set to "X1". I even paused the book and opened another book to make sure something else wasn't wrong with the speed setting (Nope, other books played fine). Mr. Rheinstrom just read through this book like he was narrating an Auction or something. EverythingIsReadSoFastYouHaveNoIdeaWhat'sHappening!!!

Several sentences are read multiple times, back to back... I am left with a feeling that this book was pushed through at an INCREDIBLE pace for some reason.

Mr. Rheinstrom obviously has a LOT of talent, I've listened to another book he's read, but he fires through this book like it's stuck on Fast Forward. Editing didn't catch a LOT of parts... in at least one place it was like he realized he'd fumbled the sentence and kinda ended up TRYING to make it sound funny, and then the sentence is immediately repeated a totally different way, with the "First time through" not removed... kinda like 'Bloopers Parts' got left in..

At first I thought the plot and story wasn't making sense because it was read so incredibly fast, but then I realized the time line was jumpy, and the story line and planning just wasn't thought out... it's hard to explain... nothing seems to make sense, plans aren't thought out, a year elapses between one sentence and the next... just, strange.

Better than book one.

Where does Galactic Empire Wars: Emergence rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Audio Performance is better than the first book even though someone doesn't know how to edit the audio. Sentences are repeated at chapter change.

the story continues, same problems.

the narrator repeates lines, and talks way to fast. set the talk speed to .90x.

the story continues and is well writen, theres action and developments that expand the story. I enjoyed it just need to set the narrator speed.

About the same

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The quality of sound is terrible.Goes from loud to not being able to hear it

Could you see Galactic Empire Wars: Emergence being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

None

Speed Can Be Adjusted

What did you love best about Galactic Empire Wars: Emergence?

If the reader goes too fast for you, slow it down to .75. That is no problem, at least on my Iphone,

Good story, poor execution.

This series has a great storyline, but it makes me wonder if it was edited. There were many simple errors that could be easily corrected that would improve the flow and general feel of the story. I have recommended the story to another sci-fi fan, but also warned them about the distracting mistakes in the writing.

A fix for this speed reader.

It seems we are stuck with this narrator, but I have found that listening to him at half speed makes it far more enjoyable.
Hope this helps others that are also enjoying the story.

story is so good apart from the narrator!

The only thing I found wanting with this series is the narration, a story this good needs a narrator as good, Liam Owen would have been perfect.

Good story let down by narration

The storyline is really gaining interest now. However, I still have to play it on half speed due to the narrator rushing through the chapters.

The gaps between certain sentences and at the end of chapters are far too long.

Apart from the above, and the repetition of some of the lines, this really is quite a decent series.
