good story mediocre narration

I really enjoy the Luke Stone series but this one it was a challenge to go through because of the mediocre narration. I actually had to speed up then iration so I could get through the end of the book. I will not be buying any more of these books if the narrator doesn't change

Could not finish

Sorry, I don't like the reader, and the story is too unrealistic and depressing. Hope I can figure out a way to get a refund.

Love this author!

I have really enjoyed the entire Luke Stone series! The narrator needs to work on his sound effects and the cadence of his voice. It doesn’t fit this type of story.

Good Entertainment

I'm finding it harder to find books I enjoy as writers just can't keep up with my favorites. I really like this book, so far only two in this series. Looking forward to additional stories.

good book bad narrator

narrator was the worst I've ever heard. I've listened to well over 100 books.

bad narrator

I like these books, aside from some obvious lack of research by the author. mostly in military vehicle and firearm related information. The narrator is a poor fit and makes finishing them almost painful. his "sound effects" and the way he voices the characters seems to carry zero effort or skill. I prefer the narrator from the Agent Zero books.

Best way to destroy a book

Using this narrator is the best way to ruin a book. Terrible read and struggle to listen to this guy. Battle scenes sounded more like two teenage girls talking over their crushes. Extremely unrealistic and really messed up an otherwise good book.

Another great book

Gripping from start to finish. You get sucked into Luke stones world too easily, I only wish Larry Garmon would realise that all English people don't talk with an upper class accent

Struggled to finish, story line was poor and naration was almost child like in places. Felt like my teacher was reading to me and I been in class since 1984!
