Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Probably not. Book seemed haphazard and character development not clear and rushed, often seemingly changing. Lots of droning repetativeness that made me often lose focus on what was being said.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I think some of the aspects of the story were interesting, especially his attempt to create the world in which the story takes place.
Which scene was your favorite?
The most interesting scene was probably the opening one with Tali watching her mother being murdered.
Was Vengeance worth the listening time?
With nothing else to do, it was.
Any additional comments?
I think the story just fell flat. It read more like a poorly contrived D&D module than a story. Too many bolt out of the blue revelations made by the characters and the constant hand of fate style interventions to force everyone where they needed to be, etc really just detracted from the story.

If you could sum up Vengeance in three words, what would they be?
Starts slow, incredible build up and worth the wait. I love the characters and story development.
What did you like best about this story?
Very witty and several intriguing plot lines that converge.
Any additional comments?
In the beginning, it was hard to follow (since many different perspectives and characters telling the story which hadn't yet been explained), but OMG amazing story overall and worth reading. I absolutely loved this book.

I seldom find myself in disagreement with the ratings on an audiobook, but this one really brought me up short and I wouldn't be happy if I didn't put voice to this.
Through a combination of sub-par narration, stilted dialogue, ridiculous names and hackneyed prose this audiobook manages something truly unique, being in turns painfully bad, irritating, and on occasion unintentionally hilarious.
I considered giving it a single star but that seemed churlish, besides I'm sure there are worse books, though I've yet to read/hear them.

What disappointed you about Vengeance?
How many times can someone get caught? After about the fourth time I began to get irritated and wanted it to end. The slave encampment was not well written and slaves had their own rooms - weird.
What will your next listen be?
Not the next one.
What didn’t you like about Grant Cartwright’s performance?
He was far too dramatic and sounded like he was whining instead of trying to convey fear etc.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
If the twaddle was cut out the story would be far better.
