What did you love best about Jacked?
Jacked has a great story about one of the most controversial video games of our time. Learning the recent history of the GTA series from an insider perspective was fascinating.
Who was your favorite character and why?
While I wouldn't call Jack Thompson a favorite character, his struggle was fascinating.
Would you be willing to try another one of Adam Verner’s performances?
I did not care for Verner's performance. He sounded tired, and the emotional gravity he put in to the read did not match the character of the text. All around, I found his narration to be disappointing.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No; it was easy to grow bored with the narration.
Any additional comments?
Kushner tried to duplicate the earlier success of his masterpiece Masters of Doom. The problem is that he didn't have the same access. However, the writing is still at his high standards. The problem is Verner; you'd probably be better off just reading the book.

If you are a gamer this is a really cool look into one of the biggest game company in the industry. It is a great inside the company through its birth up to today. It is well paced and Adam Verner does a great job narrating it. If your not a gamer it is still a good listen into a company going from a couple of guys into a multi-million dollar company. The story of how money and fame can take its toll and change people.
The same author wrote Master's of Doom. If you loved one you'll love the other. Highly recommend both.
