Not really a continuation of the first book, as I had expected. However, still quite enjoyable. :)

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Hilldiggers is a great Scfi Novel well written & narrated. For fans of Neal Asher they will be very happy with this stand alone Novel & for those who have not read the Agent Cormac or Spatterjay series this book is a great introduction to his work. As with most of Neals books there are some great characters in this book & be they human , alien or AI they come across as believable & real. You are quickly drawn into the story & are fully engaged from start to finish. If your looking for an action packed audio book that you can't put down here it is.
What did you like best about this story?
I'm a big fan of the Polity novels so this was a real treat but I think Tigger was my Favourate character there's something about the war drones in the books that just appeal also to have a hooper as one of the lead characters was good. The combination of those two strong minded erasible personalities just works.
Have you listened to any of David Marantz’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No this is the first time I have come across this narrator but I was pleased with his performance
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes I found myself chuckling away at parts, sympathising & feeling anger. As with any well written book the story & the narrative lead the way. Although these books are set far in our future they are wholly believable you relate to the characters & as they learn & explore their environment so do you.
Any additional comments?
A great addition to audible & I hope to see more Neal Asher books soon

What disappointed you about Hilldiggers?
I usually love Asher, but this was a real slog to get through. Lots of suffering, lots of twisted, broken people. As dark as expected, but nothing actually very interesting, nobody to believe in or root for.
Would you ever listen to anything by Neal Asher again?
I hope the next one's got a bit more life to it.
Would you listen to another book narrated by David Marantz?
Yeah, the narration was fine.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
Just rather lacklustre.
