Good story, but the wrong reader

I enjoyed the story quite a bit, the descriptions of it as a sci fi twist on Groundhog Day aren't far off the mark. It was entertaining, fast paced, and with a surprising amout of humor.

My one issue is that the reader is all wrong. He doesn't do a bad job with the story, but the narrator is a teenage boy fresh out of high school. The reader is a gravel voiced middle age man, and doesn't try to modulate his voice accordingly.

Military Sci Fi Grind at it's finest

Would you listen to Edge of Tomorrow (Movie Tie-in Edition) again? Why?

I love military Sci Fi Fiction. This captured the horrors of war while relating it to this generations view of war as a video game. Excellent satire as always from one of my favorite Genres.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rita, The Full Metal Bitch. It was a short story but her character was Cold as ice and surprisingly vulnerable. Well Realized Bad Ass!

What does Mike Martindale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His delivery is fantastic. I just thought Keiji should have probably sounded more japanese. It's a silly Knit PIck I know.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It had a bit of dark humor and like most war fiction had some very sad imagery.

Any additional comments?

This was my first Audible DL and I just want to say I'm very happy with Audible.com bringing me listening that I can't get anywhere else.
