Great short story! I didn't even bother reading the description before wanting this book. Erik and Hollie are a perfect combo! Great sci-fi short about mechanic and and her A.I. friends. And of course a sweet little female romance which I always enjoy in Erik's books. Of course I think it's Hollie's voice that makes it so much sweeter!

Would you consider the audio edition of Fixit to be better than the print version?
considering i love reading and listening to books,I can't really compare the two in this way. I love reading the words taking my time to enjoy the scenery. I also love listening especially if the VA's bring something new to the stage. is it better? in some regards but I still love both platforms.
What did you like best about this story?
which to pick... I love a lot of stuff in this story the characters, the scenes. the adorable pingers! i would really like to see more, especially scenes with Vega and Vashon! can't wait for more
What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?
oh man! everything! her voice just sounds perfect for Narrating and how she brings emotion is something else.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I did listen to it in one sitting! it is that good!
Any additional comments?
I thoroughly enjoyed both reading and listening to this book and I'm sure you will too. this gets reader's seal of approval
