Nice, but could be so much more!

Would you listen to Sentinels again? Why?

Possibly, just to catch anything I might've missed the first time.

Have you listened to any of Pete Milan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Pete does a fine job, as expected. His voice is always very pleasant to listen to, and he gets a chance to really show off his vocal range here.

Any additional comments?

The book took a while to grab me, really. I normally blow through audiobooks pretty fast, but this one I kept going away from and coming back to. Once the story begins to really build to its climax in the second half, it gets a lot better, but the first part was hard to get through for a while.

I shall now begin my twelve page evil monologue!

If you follow my reviews, and God knows why, you'll note that I love superhero audiobooks. This sterns from my love of comics as a young lad in uptown New Orleans. And I still enjoy them a bit - I even collected the four "Dark Knight Returns" graphic novels - First issues, too!

So, what's this rambling diatribe have to do with Sentinels?

I'm monologuing, thank you very much - A definite NO-NO for villains everywhere.

You see, this modest diamond in the rough audiobook has it all - Origin stories, great plot lines, dark mysteries, fantastic powers, epic edge-of-your-seat battles on earth and in space, secret bases, futuristic technology, strange alien agendas, nefarious backstabbers, heroes with weaknesses, and...

Villains that monologue. A LOT.

I so loved this listen, and everything jelled just right - Except for that, and the narrator. A bit campy on the villain's monologues, which did NOT help.

However, this is a great series that I will dive into. This is all about fun listening without a moral lesson or force-fed ethics. Just a great roller-coaster ride of an audiobook. So, I do recommend it for its very successful storytelling, despite these two flaws.

Now, if you're totally an Isaac Asimov or Greg Bear type of listener, who enjoys technical background descriptions and explanations, this may NOT be for you. But still, I DO recommend that you let your hair down and have a little bit of fun.

So, Mr. Plexico, I leave you with one important quote that will serve you well:

"He starts monologuing! He starts, like, this prepared speech about how feeble I am compared to him. How inevitable my defeat is, how the world will soon be his, yadda-yadda-yadda... Yammerin'! I mean, the guy has me on a platter, and he won't shut up!" - Frozone, The Incredibles Movie

Remember, less is more, Mr. Plexico. And have a talk with the narrator - Pull it back a notch. Or two.

And thanks for a great romp!
