Do make sure you get the versions performed by Luke Daniels who does excellent character differentiation and sounds like he loves each character. Mr. Christopher Ragland makes female characters sound brainless and Oberon the dog sound witless instead of awesome.
This series of books is excellent and I am currently binge listening them one by one. Will make sure to get the ones performed by Luke Daniels though.
If you could sum up Hammered in three words, what would they be?
What did you like best about this story?
What about Christopher Ragland’s performance did you like?
It goes without saying the best part of Christophers performance is Oberon. If you haven't read any of the books you won't understand but you can feel this character as he reads it.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, I normally limit to hour stints. Although I suppose if you had good stamina, one sitting might be possible.
Any additional comments?
This book has a lot of monologging. While it read well in paperback, in audio it seems to drag on. This is really my only negative on the story.
Amazing funky story with amazing Narrating .
If you looking for easy to enjoy and stimulating entertaining sci fi , this is your book .
I would highly recommend C.Ragland narrating , as he brings life abd joy to the story .
I'm training for an ultra-hike (100KM) so I needed something that was (a) easy to listen too as I'm map reading at the same time and (b) exciting enough to fill in the time when there isn't any decent scenery to look at. This fits the bill. There are some excellent action sequences, the plot isn't too complicated and there are some genuinely funny jokes (very important in 4hrs of walking).
The one thing I would say is that Christopher Ragland's range of female voices is not great. I think that Granuaile sounds a bit like a simpering idiot (and she's meant to be hot, intelligent and spirited, go figure), so I've taken a star off performance. That's my opinion though and it's certainly not enough to put me off. I'm buying the next one.
I thought I'd be starting to get sick of this series by now... But then the author seemed like I know said that things needed to be changed up! And now the story line progresses exceptionally well! This book was fantastic, I cannot wait for the next one when my monthly subscription renews.

A fun next step in the series. After reading the first two went audiobook for the third and will probably do the rest this way, mostly due to the excellent reading and voice work which really bought the characters to life.
