Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would... with a few disclaimers. It is a fun story if you are more into characters interacting with each other vs. action and/or realism.
Would you be willing to try another book from David S. Goyer and Michael Cassutt ? Why or why not?
Probably. The writing was pretty good for the most part.
Have you listened to any of Joe J. Thomas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No - just from book 1.
Any additional comments?
Well, all-in-all I guess I liked it. I liked it good enough to finish and continue onto the third book. There are some plot elements you just have to say "whatever"... get past those and just enjoy the characters and it's a fun story.
I wasn't all that keen on their "first day" activities. You get abducted and plopped into a huge NEO with no welcoming committee (no guards, no one) what do you do? You decided you need to elect a mayor - day one???? Strange. How about explore the place?? That would have made more sense to me. Then to make it worse, DAY 1 was examined over-and-over again from different characters perspectives. This actually could have been cooler if there was more interesting stuff going on...
Once you get past DAY 1 (almost the 1st half of the book it seemed) then it got much better.

This book is a cross between.. The Pod People in outer space, A Bad Soap Opra, A realy Poor Sci-fi movie and a Bad Dream. The good narration is the only thing that kept me listening.
