A DIFFERENT TWIST OF CHARACTERS
It was a different twist to the John Carter series. This book is the story of Thuvia and Carthoris. They are the two main characters in this book. A break from John Carters adventures. I bit different. More...uhhh..."metal and ethereal"
I can describe Gene Engene in two words, "Captain Kirk".
Dang...after listening to the first three of the Barsoom books by the awesome Scott Brick, I tried to find others that he narrated. But I could not. So now I had three options to continue with the next two (or three) books in the series:
Todd Bolen should not be narrating. Period. The book was returned.
Then I tried Gene Engene. This guy takes a breath, says what he can in that breath, and then pauses for 2 or 3 seconds...EVERY SINGLE TIME. (Captain Kirk)!
I just could not get over it. And sadly, you cannot catch these pauses when you listen to the excerpt when testing what the narrators sound like on the book sample.
I am returning it, and going with Raymond Todd next. I am crossing my fingers, as I really like listening to this series. I read them as a teenager (I am 48 years old now), and am reliving the adventures while I do my morning runs.
Not sure why, but the chapters that are said, are different from the chapters that show on my Droid.
The author is saying that I am on chapter 6, but the title on the top of my Droid says chapter 3. This gets confusing, and hard to know where I was at if I accidently hit the wrong button while running.
FYI: Six chapters is the most I can bear. I am returning it and starting it from the very beginning with narrator Raymond Todd. I feel I missed-out on so much of this book by being distracted by Captain Kirk's reading.

A Great Series, performed atrociously.
After listening to the first 3 books I was very anxious to start this book. But within minutes the reader tendency to put the emphasis in the wrong place of every sentence and EXTREMELY annoying tendency to slightly pause between each word as if he needs glasses and was having trouble reading the text of the book. At times this pause between words became so irritating I had to stop the recording and step away from it as it was driving me utterly mad. I even tried speeding up the narrator via the Audible app options but this was still irritating. The half hearted attempts at adding differing voices to the characters was also simply annoying.
I would NOT buy another title performed by Gene Engene. In fact I had purchased book #4 and #5 which is also performed by Gene Engene before knowing he was so inept at the performance and to be honest wish I had not purchased either.
