Although I somewhat agree with the other reviewer that it was certainly difficult at times to keep everything straight. I do love John Lee's narration work, maybe they had an intern do the editing and mix work.
Besides that though, this book is a bit of a departure from the previous two books in that it takes placed almost entirely off planet. The characters, the plot, and the settings are all done very well.
Although this book may not change your life, it is leaps and bounds above the normal rubbish Sci-fi literature.I would defiinitely recommend it, but be aware that the editing is a bit funky.

What made the experience of listening to Orbus the most enjoyable?
Straight ahead, crisp storytelling. It was filled with creative mayhem, imaginative tech and cool characters. Even the bad guys were awesome and interesting.
What other book might you compare Orbus to and why?
Asher's characters are a lot like the warrior characters in Williams Gibson's Sprawl Trilogy. Nobody will ever be as cool as Molly Millions, but a lot of characters in this book come close. In particular a certain war drone AI named sniper.
What does William Gaminara bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Clean narration. Doesn't go overboard creating voices
