Scott has done it again. Another masterpiece. The writing here is on another level worthy of t.v. or movies. Amazing work. He is due for recognition beyond just being an author very soon!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I love these books, but the new Narrator is just awful. It really jolts you out of the story. The old M was much better. I'm only a bit of the way through it, but so far, I can't stand her. I can't get into the story like I used to. I'm thinking I just might need to read this one instead of Listen.

Why oh why did they change the narrator!!! Previous two books it felt like you were listening to ‘M’ telling her own story and feeling her experiences. This third book feels like someone is simply reading a book to you with almost no feeling to their words. Very disappointing after the first two very good books 😪
I loved this trilogy and the narrator of the first 2 books but the inconsistency in the way the names are said in the 3rd book are really annoying. If you are going to change the narrator at least get them to say the names and places the same as in the first 2 books. For me it ruined the book and I don't even want to finish the 3rd book, I am only on chapter 3 and I have written this review due to how annoying it is!!!! very disappointed
I found this disappointing. I'm not sure that it was the story. I think it was the narration. It's not that Kovacs was bad, it's just that she is not the original Em. The contrast between the two narrators is stark, too stark. Listening to Kovacs read is like hearing the story being read by a 25 year old Em to a 12 year old child. I found it almost boring. When listening to Emma Galvin's version of Em you feel like the story is unfolding before your eyes (or ears). You are there with Em, in the moment, in middle of the action and it's intense. Everything that happened in the final book felt like it was happening to someone else - another Em and not the Em I got to know from the first two books. I found it hard to care for her in the same way. If you liked the series it's worth getting to the end. However I think I would have enjoyed it more if I'd just read it.
Loved the final chapter, and how the story ended. A Kovacs was brilliant as the new reader.
