What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A more believable story would help. Better narrator with more variety between voices. I gave up part way through the second half.
Would you ever listen to anything by Terry W. Ervin II again?
Nope - not a chance. Terry W Ervin is on my "avoid at all costs" list (I usually use another name for this list, but don't want to be rude).
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
I suppose at least the performer's voice was pleasant, but there wasn't enough variety between character voices - leading to losing track of which character was talking.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Almost anything/everything led to me being distracted - I was that bored. I persisted as far as I did because the premise had promise, but I couldn't stick with it to the end, I just gave up on it.
Any additional comments?
If you like being bored, or just need some background noise while doing something else, then grab this, otherwise, avoid it.
Would you listen to Relic Tech again? Why?
No because I never listen, read, or watch a audio, book, or movie twice. But I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Kra Kessay a character grounded in old world morals and survival techniques who survives in a future world of technology
Which character – as performed by James Conlan – was your favorite?
I did think Mr. Conlan's voice was a bit too formal in some action parts of the story. Hence only a four star rating.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Difficult to do with any audio book. I listen in my car while traveling
Any additional comments?
I read another review that panned Relic Tech rather badly. In my opinion the reviewer was completely wrong. The story concept of a warrior armed with only a shotgun and pistol against future laser and energy pulse weapons is a brilliant concept. It gives the listener something to be grounded in. Lets face it, inner galactic wars is not a realism many of us can believe in so the entertainment aspect is what we're left with. The other reviewer stated the concept was unbelievable. As if inner galactic wars is believable. I read and listen to stories to be entertained. This story is entertaining. Mr. Ervin's ability to weave a tale is extraordinary.In a make believe world he made totally unbelievable characters come to life.
