"cringe 80s narration and sound, but chopped up"
they chopped too much dialogue
......... ruined many of the necessary details and character development. it is a poor version
Need more l, BUT Un-abridged. more on cans too. The series is awesome, kinda pissed theres only 6 on here.
"hard to listen"
this whole series has loud noises added to it. trying to listen to in a car is horrible.
Great story. Would have probably enjoyed it more if I hadn't read the series multiple times on paperback, but I wonder if I hadn't been familiar with the story, would I have been able to follow the characters' motivations and actions. Knowing all the parts that this abridged version cut left me wondering why they bothered
"Good book. Good series. Suffers from abridgement."
I can't complain about the reader. His performance is good and his voice is similar to that of the author's. It's the abridgment that hurts. It makes the story difficult to follow and damages its overall impact. Maybe another Battletech series would've been a better choice to record. One with fewer characters and a more linear narrative would've been easier to fit into the this three-hour format. For this reason I would've rated it even lower but this is the only Battletech series available in audio, and I enjoy the line. So if your looking for Btech to play in the car, this is it. Check it out. Then go buy the paperbacks. I'm sure Fasa and Stackpole would appreciate the shekels.
I'd give it five stars if it wasn't abridged.
"i liked it"
i liked it alot this is the 3ed Battletech book i have read but i really thought it was one of the best books i have ever read
