Low quality audio! Good short story/book.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Re-do the whole recording. 'The quality is deplorable, audio cut and pasted to death all thru the reading.. Differing pitch volume etc etc several repeats of words and other things wrong with it.


If you’ve listened to books by John G. Hartness before, how does this one compare?

I do not think there was much difference from John's earlier or later works other then that the main character is a really capable teenage girl instead of a goofy 20 something guy nor a Bubba..


Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narration was acceptable if one is able to ignore the myriad of technical issues and plain terribly unprofessional way the audio is put together, if that makes any sense.


Was Headshot worth the listening time?

Yeah well worth it. I would probably have enjoyed it more if the whole "book" was a bit more fleshed out tho.


Any additional comments?

I am rating this offering 3 out of 5 all categories more for what the book is not and for the awful quality of the audio production then anything else.

The narration is good, not spectacular but more then adequate.

I think that Cindy could do with some more training on the torture of men.. I do not really think the .22 torture she so espouses to be the most effective. Quoting Kipling..

When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains, and the women come out to cut up what remains, jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains and go to your gawd like a soldier.

Above quote well lets just say most men will loose their shit at the thought of incensed women with sharp objects etc.. The female of the species usually being way more scary then us males.

Belivibily is somewhere around zero

The plot was formulaic. It read like a creative writing class exercise.

The violence was excessive. There was simply no need for all of the killing. I don't mind violence at all but this was simply not necessary to fill the needs of the story.

The the entirety of the nature and interaction of the relationships pushed believability beyond the boundary.

The characters were shallow insipid and sociopathic. This is a very very sick group of people with no moral center.

There is no profanity or sex in the story which leads me to believe it is targeted for the 14-19 group. It so this novella is nothing more than a training scenario for psychopathy.
