What did you like best about this story?
A departure from Reynolds work. 1st person perspective that took me quite a while to get into. At first I thought I was going to be giving this a very poor review, but after getting into the book (after a binge of hearing John Lee narrate some space marine books) I started to really like it. A bit of a steampunk/Victorian feel to it, but still a lot of fun.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Clare Corbett?
Clare was fine.
Any additional comments?
Whoever mastered/edited this needs a freaking slap and if I see you at APAC I will. Shame on you! As a narrator myself, under another name, I was shocked at the quality of this. Whoever edited this did not bother to listen through after they ran it through a fairly aggressive noise-gate. When Clare is being quiet, which is quite often, the db drops dramatically where the processor lowers the volume to the point that whole words are barely audible at times. More often the end of soft words are cut off/reduced to near inaudibility. If Clare had been louder in her reading it may not have been a problem, but with her habit of half whispering at times it was extremely annoying and IMO the book should be pulled and re-edited.

The story is fast-paced and much more dialogue-heavy compared to the author's other books. The audio volume is troublesome for me, however. There are sections when the narrator is whispering quietly followed by much louder exclamations that hurt my ears. I recommend ripping the audio and renormalizing it so you don't have to strain yourself to understand what is being said.
