If you are a fan, truly a fan this story will bring on so many emotions. While the book is short the narrative involved is vast. The subject matter encompasses an issue as grave to mankind as the atomic bomb and guided missiles. That being Artificial Intelligence becoming self aware and machine consciousness.
On the fictional story side of things I found this novelette to be not only compelling but also a great listen. The narrator is a favorite. As a Halo junkie I couldn't wait to listen to it. Evidence put forth during the hearing.( which is the entirety of the book) for me proves that the UNSC and ONI needs to forgive Dr Catherine Halsey and stop using her as the scapegoat for all the ills of the war. Her work and theories saved mankind. The last 8 minutes of the story had me cheering however too many spoilers to go into details.
All said this is another great Halo listen With a mix of social commentary

What made the experience of listening to Saint's Testimony the most enjoyable?
The narration is top-notch. It elevates the book to a standard that it shouldn't be at.
What other book might you compare Saint's Testimony to and why?
This book echoes the cut scenes of a Halo video game.
What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?
Scott does a wonderful job on the different voices. It is easy to track who is who.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. It is great for a jog or bike ride. Perfect for an in-between read.
Any additional comments?
This book does not stand alone. It is best understood after completing previous Halo books like Fall of Reach, The Flood, First Strike, Ghosts of Onyx, etc.
It is very short but it's cleverly done and kept me engaged throughout. Very good!
This really got me hard! It was fantastic and left me wanting so much more.

The AI in halo have always been well fleshed out characters, intellectually, philosophically and creatively. this story expands on the mortality of the AI characters and how they're evolving socially and philosophically in their own mortality and in relation to their human origins and creators, leading into the Halo 5 plotline curiously and well.
