I bought this audiobook back in May when it was part of the Audible Daily Deal. I fancied a bit of sci-fi at the time, but when I started listening in July I wasn’t at all impressed. The story was intriguing, but it was pretty slow to get going and I wasn’t enjoying the narration at all. I put it aside for over a month, feeling guilty whenever I saw it in my audible library. I came back to it this week, and I’m glad I did as the pace has picked up and it more exciting now. I’m still not that keen on the narration, particularly the unnecessary incidental music. I’m not sure how I’ll rate it at the moment, but at least I know it won’t be a DNF.
