Great Story -- Narration could be better
If you could sum up Carpe Diem in three words, what would they be?
Total Space Opera
What other book might you compare Carpe Diem to and why?
It might sound strange, but I'd compare it to the Two Towers -- there's lots of characters running around, separated but working towards a common goal, with lots of action. The characters and the action continue in the next book, so the overall issues are not resolved in this single book. I hasten to add that the two books are totally different in the tone, pace, and world/universe. But I enjoy this book for many of the same reasons I like the Two Towers.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Andy Caploe?
I have listened to Agent of Change before this one, so the answer is, "yes." However the issue I have with his female voices is more apparent in this book. And he sometimes seems to lose the characterization completely at times (Jeeves, Patricia). At some points, if I didn't know the book so well, it might be hard to keep track of who is talking. I love these books, so I'll continue to buy them despite this.
Any additional comments?
This book is one of my comfort books -- when I'm tired or unhappy. The combination of action and romance always makes me feel better.

More Miri and Val Con
I love the Liadan books by Miller and Lee and this one is no exception. I have read it multiple times. I wrote in my review for Agent of Change that Andy Caploe's female voices drive me nuts and I still don't like them. Miri's voice improved in this one - but all his female voices are so breathy and quite frankly most of them are whiney - I will get Plan B but because I love the books - not because I like Andy Caploe's narration.

Snail's pace and over-precise
It may be the responsibility of the director (if there was one), but the read is painfully slow and over-accentuated. It is the first time I have come across this type of problem, though I know from other listeners that some titles suffer from it.I was just 46 minutes in and debating giving up in irritation when I came across a fluff. Now that really *isn't* good enough.Please provide a cleaned-up version.

Enjoyed this as much as Agent of Change. looking forward to the next book.
Didn't think much of the narrator's female voices.
