Fun story, read well!

Would you consider the audio edition of Last of the Chosen to be better than the print version?

I know the author, so I was the first to review the book when it came out. I loved the book, and now that I have listened to the audiobook version, I love it too! I thought the reader did a great job and I so enjoyed listening while I mowed the yard and did other activities. I thought the reader brought a lot to the story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Last of the Chosen?

I love the beginning, where the author draws you in with the opening excitement. From there you just want to keep reading!

Have you listened to any of Jared Wekenman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I'm a hopeless romantic, so I love reading about Ellie & Mike's evolving relationship.

Any additional comments?

This is a really long book!! It is 22 hours of fun, so enjoy.

This is a good series which I hale already READ.

This is a sprawling series in the tradition of the great old Space Operas. I highly recommend it. Action, seemingly impossible odds and insurmountable tasks. Intrigue, betrayal and vast Empires. Try it you'll like it.

I am only rating the performance a 3 since I just started listening. I have, however, already READ all of the books in the series. I will edit the review once i have finished the book and decide just how good a job the narrator does. Hopefully, the other books will be available on Audible very soon.

Why?

Why are the others in the series not on Audible? The book was wonderful and I’m not much of a sci-fi person but I actually love this

Exciting epic tale.

Loved the book. I keep relistening. At first, narrator sounded unusual, but as story unfolds he does all the different voices. I hope the author will put the sequel on audio too.

So much potential

First chapter was great. Then it took a 180. Story refuses to progress and the main character is constantly put in his place and is a push over. It started to feel like an anime harem situation.

could have been a good book

I had to return this book. mainly because the narrator is terrible. He tries too hard to sound edgy. His characterizations are severely lacking. especially one of the voices. he sounds like someone doing a bad Batman voice.

The story could have been good. In fact, the first chapter really pulls you in. Sadly, the story loses momentum after that. The writer just seems out of his depth. There's a lot of plot holes and the story moves along very slowly.
