If you could sum up Sub-Human in three words, what would they be?
Interesting, compelling and wishful
Who was your favorite character and why?
Greg and how he uses his nanos
What about Ray Chase’s performance did you like?
I'm afraid his voice was a bit dull and boring at first. But don't let it put you off the trilogy !
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, and the others straight after to see what happens.
Any additional comments?
A good trilogy that makes you wander if technology could be advanced to produce nanos ?

Once again, I take a shot in the dark, and this time, it's a win.
And for a fact, it's NOT because of Audible's description of the work. That description covers the first five minutes of the audiobook.
Think other dimensions, time dilation, neural AI mind entropy, rogue robots, nuclear fallout, new world order, suspended animation, and MUCH more.
Simpson delivers a well-written, smartly-paced and rich story, replete with rich character development, excitement, and tech-savvy future-tense believability. It beautifully sets the pace for the other novels in the series.
And, by the way, it just happens to be a great listen.
Lately, there's been a definite lack of truly noteworthy scifi/fantasy audiobooks offered here at Audible. I don't blame Audible for the lack of excellent work. There are great novels out there that are just beginning to be recorded to audiobook format, and it takes time.
So, this was a pleasant surprise, and I'm extremely glad I stumbled into it - So much so, that I'm securing the remaining novels in the series.
So, crack open that wallet, pull out that dusty credit, dear Audible listener, and put this enjoyable listen in your library.

I was a little slow to get into this. Then I got into it big time and thought it was great. Then it turned into some type of super hero comic book. The intelligence and thought that went into creating the story got dropped by the way side. I got over half way through the book and called it quits.
What made things worse is I have a bad case of FOSB. Another reviewer came up with this term to describe the fear of Scott Brick. Ray Chase is not quite as bad as SB, but he is close. Everything he says should be written in capital letters. He screams most of the sentences. It is a good voice for announcing movies, but not reading a whole book. I think some narrators such as the two mentioned do not read the book ahead of time and feel that if they read every sentence dramatically it works, this way they can also read more books, since no prep time is necessary. They make more money or they are cheaper, I don't know which. Writers should take a bigger interest in production. Rarely will Stephen King let his books be butchered like this.
