By the time "Audible hopes you've enjoyed this......." Gave us the friendly notice that the book was over, I was a drooling, dazed, walking dead that felt like I had been run over by a Mack truck. I have never listened to such a terrible narrator! From the opening syllables to the ending ringing in my ears, it was one long sentence done at breakneck speed with a monotone Extrodinare! I was so disappointed because the little intro laid out all the essentials for my kind of Sci Fi. Isn't there an editor who looks the books over before he turns them out?

story isn't bad...but the reader is so bad. I turned down playback to .5 and could follow. although sounds like a drunk read it then.

What disappointed you about Lords of War?
The perfomance is really bad.. i could barely focus on the story, at least i did not miss much there either....
Has Lords of War put you off other books in this genre?
No but it certainly shows not all books are equal
How could the performance have been better?
Having this book read at human pase would help, and actually have a reading that is human and better story with more in-depth characters...
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Want my money back !!!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I love sci-fi and I think it is my favorite genre, so I am very picky about the books I choose to read. This audiobook is very well written and kept me interested all the way to its end. Because I am not a native English it is crucial that narration is good, and that I understand each word, and the narrator did a very good job with this audiobook! The reader is easily able to relive the experiences of the Spartan in his own mind and it makes listening to this material very compelling.
The story is about the military veteran Spartan, who fought countless battles and lost everything in the process. But when the two of his best comrades are captured he gets a new reason and motive to fight. To set them free! So If you are looking for some good action, interesting story, and multi dimensional characters, this audio is a good choice for you. I really enjoyed this shoot 'em up sci-fi novel and can't wait for the sequel!
