The full-cast narration in this series is usually great, and for the most part, this book is no different. extremely distracting in this recording, however: a very poorly chosen replacement actress speaking for the character Eva mars the storyline. whereas in book 2, Eva sounded like she was raised speaking Spanish (a contextually consistent choice, she being from Puerto Rico), in book 3 she suddenly and inexplicably has a strangely strong northeastern US accent—and even worse, an obnoxious speech impediment. Eva has a much larger role in this book, to boot, meaning there's no shortage of frustration. i do love this series, and this book is well-written, engrossing like the others. But it's surprisingly difficult to listen to this totally miscasted R-less actress throughout. luckily, the rest of the cast hold up and the continued story remains witty, intriguing and darkly fascinating (despite sometimes feeling depressingly realistic/relevant). i do hope the audio version is re-produced ASAP because i enjoy re-listening to the previous books and wish i could say the same about Only Human.

just finished chapter 52 and nearly quit the book listening to it. the horrible "alien language translation" in a voice that makes no sense for no reason. I mean Yokits! it's almost as bad as frakking making a fake swear word and saying it all the frakking Yokits time. Cause that's Yokits cool and I Yokits love hearings the word Yokits over and over so I Yokits know I'm on a Yokits other planet. But God Yokits it's annoying.
Eve is now from Jersey just warning you. The Spanish accent is now a hard Jersey accent which apparently she picked up at in the alien planet. Yokits! that's seems Yokits bad.
the story is still ok, not on par with the first two. these narration issues might be skewing my judgement though. aww Yokits
