Craig Alanson, please don't do this again. Don't take a side story, break it out and charge too much for it. This "book" should have been part of "Paradise." Did I enjoy this entry? Of course. It had RC Bray as narrator and Craig Alanson as its parent. But really, this feels like a wallet-grab. Craig, you have loyal followers. Don't gouge them or they will be less loyal.
As for the story, a nice subplot in the ongoing saga. Not up to the Joe/Skippy narrative, but good nevertheless. Neither Skippy or Joe are in think even. RC Bray is magnificent, as usual. And with this entry we flesh out more of the secondary characters. Perhaps knowing them better will become important in a future installment. I hope so.
Im still a fan. i just wish i didn't feel so dirty.
If you haven't read books 1-3, don't start here. But if you have read them, and you have splurge money, then go ahead.
But this felt like some editor or agent might have said: Take this side story out and repackage it as a standalone. You'll be able to sell it for a quick extra $20. Short-term strategy. Disrespectful to your fans. I'm pissed off that I paid $20+ for this "installment." Maybe $5.95. Really, should have been part of the Paradise book.
And yes, I'll buy the next bull-length installment. I love Col. Joe and Skippy.

I've enjoyed the series but this was nothing more than a gimmick. The plot with Joe and Skippy wasn't furthered at all and the book didn't even finish. There were several instances where it seemed the author rushed the story to meet a deadline. Author and publishers owe fans more. I just feel taken advantage of and won't be listening further.

I know this is only book 3.5, but it still cost 1 credit and for that it's way too short. Great story and reading performance as usual, but no Skippy... that means 75% of the humour was missing. I assume the next half book will be free?

This seem to me just to be a way to get even more money, calling a 3.5 just seem to be a bit of a rip off, with a price tag of £25 for a book that only last 5hrs seem a bit much.
That been said it was not a bad book and I only hope the next one will pick up form where this book stops.

I love the story in this series but really disappointed with Audible Australia. Everything is the same price and this is half a book at full price. Give us some discounts for shorter books and for heavy users of audible Australia.

Great story great performance as always.
I did not realize i was getting just half a book, and i cannot recommend buying it for only 5 hours of entertainment.
