Excellent story AND narration
I love Joe Haldeman. The Forever War is one of my favorite sci-fi books ever. I listened to Starbound first, not realizing it was part of a trilogy. After finishing it, I HAD to start at the beginning of the trilogy,so got Marsbound. It is another excellent Haldeman story!
She does a really great job of bringing Carmen to life. She sounds just the way I figured she'd sound at the age she is in this book.
Get the entire trilogy. It's an excellent read!
