The story was very compelling. I found myself looking forward to my commute so I could listen to more of the story. It was exciting and absorbed my interest, making the drive fly by.
Having said that, I think there was a lot of military and governmental security stuff that maybe didn't have enough explanation for my knowledge base. For example, why was it a good thing to have a private military fighter school in existence? I had issues with the believability of the story. I can't say it couldn't happen for sure, I just like to believe such a cluster-something couldn't happen.
The other thing is the narrator. He was okay, but was mostly just reading the story. I had trouble transitioning from what one character was saying to the next character. But I was totally spoiled by the narrative team in the Ender Saga, and the narrator of the Da Vinci Code, so this guy has some stiff competition in my mind.

The story was only mediocre, which could have been disguised with a really great reader. This reader sounded like an English college student and was a poor choice for this book. It often sounded like the characters, in a moment of high drama, were discussing which pub to go to for lunch rather than whether someone was a threat to national security!
It was often difficult to distinguish one character from the other also--the voices were pretty much the same. There were also many pauses in the reading that were extraneous to what was going on and detracted from the current action.
