Excellent audiobook.

Any additional comments?

I'm not sure why this audiobook has gotten mediocre reviews. I think it's excellent and I plan on relistening a couple times to catch everything once again. It's very well-done with an excellent pace and narrator (nails the voicing, tone, and overall speech mannerisms of several characters). I especially loved the amount of detail and backstory and the sheer volume of attention given to things that can't be conveyed on screen. It's safe to say this novel is jam-packed with far more information that serves the story than the film will. Think: film - spectacle, book - immersion. This performance and the novel in general are both worthy of 4 at least.

Fun book

It was a fun audiobook. The narrator did a good impersonation of Judd Hirsch and Brent Spiner. On the technical side, the editor forgot to edit out a bad take of a certain sentence so we're treated to both takes, which is awkward, but it was near the end. Overall, I enjoyed the book.

Enjoyed but possible a bit biased ;-)

What did you like most about Independence Day: Resurgence?

I thoroughly enjoyed the original film so was looking forward to Resurgence. I felt the that the pace was pretty good and carried on well from the lifeline of the original story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

David (Jeff Goldblum's) Character just because of his manner and dry humour. His Father is quite entertaining also.

What does William Hope bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

More depth to the characters, their backgrounds and plots, which have to be condensed or lost on film

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I never listen to a full book in one sitting. But i did complete it a lot quicker than most.

Any additional comments?

Just that I did enjoy this book, mainly for the fact that i enjoyed the original story so much. It didn't disappoint and the take on the plot was good.

Better than the film.

Having watched the film 1st which I do not normally. The book is far better. The book fills in so much more and is very well read. Overall a good listen only 4* because it can never be as good as the original.
