Summary

TOPGUN instructor Luke Henry quits the Navy to start a private aerial combat school in Nevada. A lucrative contract with the U.S. government brings him 20 Russian MiG-29 fighter planes with the condition that he train a group of Pakistani Air Force Pilots hand-picked by the Department of Defense. Luke is hesitant to train fighters from another country in the skills he learned at TOPGUN, but he cannot open the school without agreeing. The closer he gets to these students, however, the more he suspects that they may have an agenda of domestic terrorism that will soon spiral out of control. With Fallout, James W. Huston scores big with his most riveting and thought-provoking thriller yet. The plot twists and turns with excitement until the startling conclusion.

Awful narrator, decent book

Worse narration I’ve ever heard on an audiobook. Monotone and dull. Very little attempt at making characters sound different and no emotion or excitement added.
Story seemed ok and I did listen to the end but narrator just made it seem dull and a bit difficult to follow.

Definitely worth the listen

The story was very compelling. I found myself looking forward to my commute so I could listen to more of the story. It was exciting and absorbed my interest, making the drive fly by.

Having said that, I think there was a lot of military and governmental security stuff that maybe didn't have enough explanation for my knowledge base. For example, why was it a good thing to have a private military fighter school in existence? I had issues with the believability of the story. I can't say it couldn't happen for sure, I just like to believe such a cluster-something couldn't happen.

The other thing is the narrator. He was okay, but was mostly just reading the story. I had trouble transitioning from what one character was saying to the next character. But I was totally spoiled by the narrative team in the Ender Saga, and the narrator of the Da Vinci Code, so this guy has some stiff competition in my mind.

mediocre book, poor choice of reader

The story was only mediocre, which could have been disguised with a really great reader. This reader sounded like an English college student and was a poor choice for this book. It often sounded like the characters, in a moment of high drama, were discussing which pub to go to for lunch rather than whether someone was a threat to national security!

It was often difficult to distinguish one character from the other also--the voices were pretty much the same. There were also many pauses in the reading that were extraneous to what was going on and detracted from the current action.
