Quality definitely went down....

Pros
Some stories were decent and worth listening to.
Glad to hear the male narrator back for another round.
Cons
Huber/female narrator is awful. She needs to be fired, only thing she brings to the stories is bitchy attitude and pointless complaining.

Overall, authors need to develop the story lines based on the real XFILES characters. Scully is smart, sympathetic, and logical. Mulder is brave, curious, and persistent. This volume definitely misses the mark compare to the previous editions.

Disappointing!

Questionable Narration

Huber has no feel for these characters and this deficit affected the stories negatively. Pinchot's voice is a pleasure to listen to but he narrates very little of this book.

very entertaining

Pinchot is great at bringing the characters to life. Huber does a decent job as well, though her Moulder needs a little work. Both performances were enjoyable and allowed me to lose myself in the stories. The writing on all but one story was really good as well. I'd definitely recommend this one.

Pretty Alright

I really enjoyed the book. There were a few things that didn't follow canon very well but overall enjoyable.

Meh

First two books were way better. Most of the stories were rather dull. This book didn't seem to capture the essence of X-Files like the other two.

I actually like the show better these books

Half of my attraction to the Xfiles is the close bond between Dana and . But this book makes her seem like a bitter and hateful and even at time quite abusive partner.

Garbage.

The only that that resembles the X-files is the name. Barely able to finish with these obnoxoius characters.

Worst in the series

Terrible depiction of Scully. Her skepticism and science worship bordered on delusional neurosis. Also, the playful banter she typically shares with Moulder was skewed to make her seem condescending and dismissive. in other words, they wrote her like she was a female version of Richard Dawkins.
