Well,I started the series, so I have to finish it.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Any book is time well spent. I just think I could have spent it on a better book. It just drags. I can't say it was one of those stories that grabs you and holds you attention. This one just kept me hoping something would come along and start the ball rolling. At times there was a glimmer. But......it just never got there.

If you’ve listened to books by Roger MacBride Allen before, how does this one compare?

This is the second. I'll give him" A" for imagination.

What three words best describe John Haag’s voice?

Steady, unwavering, uninterested

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No. It would be as disappointing as "Starship Trooper".

Any additional comments?

I hope Book 3 makes up for the short comings of the other two. I will most likely finish the series out just because I have to. Would not recommend this series to anyone.
