I had never heard of either this author or the narrator. I bought the book in the $5 sale, so my expectations were low. The book blew me away. Most of it is so well written that it is a shame that the ending sucks so badly. This is the story of Paul and Callie, and other people (and un-people) who work at TEXDOGS, the Texas Department of Governmental Services. There is plenty of fun to be had throughout the book, and the love story between Callie and Paul is incredibly sweet and tender. There are also a couple of really great sex scenes. The story descends into science fiction, which only bothered me a little until the end. There is waaaay too much hell at the end. I know, it is often very hard for a great book to have a great ending, but still. What you want is for these two lovers to walk hand in hand off into the Texas sunset. What happens, though, is what seems like days of the underworld and its nefarious doings. I must admit that I am not a fan of science fiction: it seems to me a genre in which authors can make up their own rules, which makes the books flabby and utterly impossible. If anything goes, then you can make up absolutely anything, and it has to be OK. Personal preference. In any case, you can get hours of wonderful pleasure from the book. The author can write like mad, and the narrator is fantastic.

Would you try another book from James Hynes and/or Adam Grupper?
Maybe, the narration was good, the writing wood but story...strange. I don't knw what I really expected but it wasn't this.
Would you recommend Kings of Infinite Space to your friends? Why or why not?
Uhm, maybe to my weird friends.
What about Adam Grupper’s performance did you like?
Good, he kept in character well letting the listener transition between characters well.
Do you think Kings of Infinite Space needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Not really. Wouldn't interest me.
Any additional comments?
I bought this book along with ninteen others during Audibles $5 sale. I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this particular one. Others I bought during the sale have been great and a real bargin. It all equals out I guess.
