Great but has some quirks.

Any additional comments?

Good book but fake "bad words" were over used. I read a post talking about this issue but dismissed it as whineing. When the Marines were talking or yelling you would hear "Holy gunk!" and a couple other words over and over. Marines while deployed may use foul language. Get used to it. If real words can't be used then I understand. Bottom line, omit false words or use real ones.

very good

What made the experience of listening to Vorpal Blade the most enjoyable?

I just enjoy the John Ringo can hold and develop a story line and the characters in the story. His books come to life when you read/listen to them.

I really can not select any one most memorable moment of the book. t was caught up from the very beginning, and could not put it down the first listen.

Excellent performance for a fun ride.

I've always enjoyed this novel, and I found that
the narrating served it well. Looking forward to hearing the rest.

the narrator, LJ Ganser, did an excellent job with rendering voices that were unique for each character.

Loved it. Sci-fi at it's best. The narrator did a great job. Timing voice inflection he does it all . I truly recommend this audio book .

Fake Bad words!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

While listening to this work I could have given it a better overall score if I could understand the kinds of fake bad words he was using. I will have to be on guard with other works as this was very distracting.

What other book might you compare Vorpal Blade to and why?

I have been unable to understand the story well enough to get passed the fake bad words.

Which scene was your favorite?

The part where tuffy becomes into a cool spider and not a children's play toy any more.
