A Sci-Fi Throwback that is well done.
Would you consider the audio edition of Midnight on Mars to be better than the print version?
Have only listened to the Audio edition but it is a good experience.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Kari is a great character ....... she is torn on many levels on how to deal with her former fiance.
What about Chase Johnson’s performance did you like?
The characters are more realistic through his performance.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

It helped her sing that tune of Mars.
Earth, already badly beset by natural disasters and radiation poisoning, is simply counting down the days to a total extermination event which will finally end all life. In an attempt to preserve some of humanity, a base has been established on Mars with a few lucky lottery winners given passage to, hopefully, a new life. One of the passengers aboard the shuttle is Kari, once the girlfriend of a scientist already based at the Mars station: she and Niel had parted after a violent disagreement over views on how the future should proceed.
Although this basic premise is not new, the opening pages of the book are instantly gripping. The docking of the ship is met immediately by security alarms, panic - and deaths.
The ending is interestingly different, also.
Pity about all of the rest in between.
Badly written, this is a romance, with lines like, "She felt the old him and, when they discarded clothes, she felt all of him," and,"The butterflies left the artificial lamps to fly towards the couple's light instead, fluttering around them in a joyous dance." It is also a strung out and improbable battle zone, awash with blood and lumbering monsters and, finally, a diatribe of pseudo astrological and mythical religion versus fanatical ideas of good versus evil. Sorry but this reader found it to be tedious rubbish.
Narrator Chase Johnson did his best, becoming more intensely animated during the (latter) fight confrontations. His voicings were good, but even he had to struggle to hold attention.
This is definitely a book in need of a good editor. It certainly has some potential but...
My thanks to the rights holder for gifting me a copy of Midnight on Mars, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. I voluntarily review all of the books I read or hear, always truthfully but obviously prefering to be positive where possible. This is about as positive as I can get for Midnight on Mars.
