The problem with the narration is that everything is emphatic. There's barely a conversation (seemingly) that is less than 'full on'. Also there are curious pauses (like the narrator loses track of the text) and some odd emphases which distract from the content. But it isn't as hard as other reviews to suggest to ignore those deficiencies.
The story itself is good and immersive. The characters and world that the story is set in is also fairly well developed. There are a number of situations that could be developed further even warrant novels of their own (such as the flying circus). I personally don't like the way the time line jumps back and forward at times. Several times a past event is referred to and later on the narrative jumps back to that event instead of leaving it mysterious. Some ideas could be fleshed out a little better.
Otherwise the story is compelling. Highly recommended.

I absolutely loved it. The story line was great. I enjoyed the narrator. I am going to read the book 2 if there is one.
I am going to avoid anything read by John Hough in future as he has taken what was a very enjoyable story and made it painful because of his apparent lack of understanding of the purpose of punctuation. Someone really should have told him to use the punctuation supplied by the author rather than shove it in any place.
