The story, action, research and performance all add up to a vivid, gripping experience.

The Tide series, same, same great action.
What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?
Brings the characters and world alive, heightens the suspense.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I wish I could have.
Any additional comments?
The kick-ass narration once again elevates this dynamic combo of military action, science fiction and post-apocalyptic mayhem. Keeps deepening the characters and scope of the series. Still my fave series of this ilk. Looking forward to more!

Normally I just give the numerical rating and call it a day. However in the case of this novel I make an exception. This story is truly exceptional. From the storyline, to the characters, to the realism, and to any other criteria you rate novels by, this story is outstanding. No matter when you listen to the story it will be a thrill however, I recommend listening to this without any other distractions and with a good amount of time on your hands because it is one kick ass ride of excitement.

Nicolas Smith seems to have a fetish for redheads and freckles at least 5 characters are described as freckled faced with 3 of them being redheads.
The story clips along well enough and is entertaining even if Reed Beckham seems a little too soppy to be the leader of the best delta force team in the US military.
Bronson makes most of the female characters come across as overly emotional whining messes always on the verge of tears which is understandable for kids but must missrepresent how Smith wrote the adults
overall it's an entertaining enough series that I'm going to finish
The narration was terrible, as bad as the 1-3 box set. The story line was equally terrible, nothing really happened and the plot showed no real sign of any new ideas.
I started the 4-6 box set due to interesting cliff-hanger and a genuine interest in the characters survival, but towards the end I just hoped that all of the characters would die and it would be over. I also secretly hoped that the narration would improve, but it didn't.
It's unlikely that I will ever try another book narrated by Pinchot and I will not bother with any other books in the this series.
