What was one of the most memorable moments of Birthright?
One of the most memorable moments was near the beginning when the author was writing about humans from an alien view.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. I really enjoyed the first several hours while the universe and plot was being set up and then it slowed down to introduce the "good guys" and started using some voices that were a little jarring for me.
Any additional comments?
I was not the target demographic for a lot of the humor however I imagine it might go over well with YA.
Overall I enjoyed the quick pace, the world, and the general plot but I felt it fell short in the dialog and character development. Also Sam was too "Over Powered"
I received a free copy in return for an honest review.

Any additional comments?
This book was provided free of charge in expectation of a fair review.
This could be considered a young adult book. Yet it had a lot of action throughout and kept you wondering how it would move next. There were many subtle twist to the plot.
It also had almost a slapstick sense of humor that came out in the most unexpected places and made you smile.
The premise of a young orphan from Iowa being the one to save the galaxy is a bit far fetched; but works well for this series. They stumble through their various adventures and seem to come out alive though all their classmates and population are not so lucky.
The narrator does a superb job with the various voices and it is easy to distinguish the characters. He also puts a great deal of feeling into them as they undertake their adventures and seem to be on the verge of destruction.
Even though I am not a young adult I enjoyed the book and look forward to listening to the remaining books in the series.
