Mission Earth - Black Genesis

If you could sum up Black Genesis in three words, what would they be?

addictive, fun, action packed.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Still Heller. Same as for Vol 1 he can exist in an environment full of sharks and be safe, becuase he is super able and has a prosurvival purpose.

What about uncredited’s performance did you like?

The actors play their parts very realistically and make the characters very believable.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I really liked the part where he just walks into Babe Corleone's apartment.

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to Vol 3

A Fun Audio Drama

Would you listen to Black Genesis again? Why?

I have already listened twice and probably will listen for a third time before continuing with the third volume in the series. I think at this point I am pretty much hooked.

If you’ve listened to books by L. Ron Hubbard before, how does this one compare?

Just as in the first volume in the series it is a seemingly irreverent science-fiction adventure series that really says much more than it's humor would suggest.

What about uncredited’s performance did you like?

I really enjoy the multi-cast productions and sound effects. My only issue is that the quality is somewhat wanting. The only reason I won't make an issue of it is that I am concerned that will pull the titles down.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No particular moment moved me anymore than any other. I just sat back and listened to the zaniness that unfolded as Jettero Heller moved forward with his secret mission and interacted with various Earth personalities who were some real characters.

Any additional comments?

It's a fun listen but start with the first volume of Mission Earth. Black Genesis: Mission Earth, Volume 2 is not a stand alone novel.
