When did Chase become so negative?
This is the eleventh audio book I have bought by Jack McDevitt. It was entertaining but I must say I was disappointed in Chase’s role in this book. Her character was so negative throughout the whole book. I had always seen her as an asset to Alex but here she was an anchor. A very disappointing drag to the story. She could have been the catalyst that raised this book to another level. Instead, I found myself almost wanting to skip over her parts and I would have if I could. This is still a great story but not the dynamic duo of past books. Hope this just a bump in the road.

Can I have Jennifer Van Dyck back, please!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
No, this is fifth book in the series and they switched the narrator. I was really unhappy with this decision and the new narrator. I went through because the next book, the final in the series, has the old narrator.
What other book might you compare Echo to and why?
Polaris, another Jack McDevitt book with a good story like this one but a better narrator.
What didn’t you like about Coleen Marlo’s performance?
Coleen is no Chase(a main character) and she has a tendency to make all the characters sound annoying or weak or pathetic. It really ruined the book for me. I even went looking for a different version of the audiobook but didn't find one.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, I listen in the car, while doing dishes or cleaning house and sometimes on my lunch break.
Any additional comments?
To all people responsible for getting audiobooks recorded: Please Please Please do not change the narrator in the middle of a series. It really ruined this series and book for me.
