Unbelievable!!!

1st thing that explodes in this book is the HORRIBLE ATTEMPT of the narrator to identify each character with a voice that a mother couldn't even love!!! OMG did they not hear this guy before putting the book on audible??? The narrator has a good voice while he isn't in character but you must plug your ears when he is!!! I really don't think I'll be able to stomach the rest of the book!!! He will kill the sale of this book.

Make it believable

When telling a tale on audio you must make it believable and that means bringing characters to life. Gene Engene somehow turns every sailor into a parody of a southern ‘hick’ and every opponent into a knuckle dragging thug. America is rich in regional accents, as is Russia but the characters in this read are come across as simpletons. The real US and Russian submarine fleets must be made up of smart, well trained and responsible people so why of why make them sound so stupid? It turns a tale woven with technical information into a comic. Michael DiMercurio should get this re-read for the book deserves better treatment.
