This whole seeries is one of the best SciFi stories I've listened to. The author is imaginative, does an excellent job of writing character dialogue and his character development is superb BUT the narrator is mediocre at best. This will sound like a repeat of my reviews of book two and three of this series. It is still well worth the low price point and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves adventure and quirky strange situations with a hero who bumbles his way through the most impossible challenges. You will have to put up with a narrator who mis-pronounces words, has only three or four different character voices, which should help keep the clarity of who is speaking, except that he frequently uses the incorrect voice so it is distracting and confusing. Fortunately, the author frequently tells you who is speaking but a good voice actor would make that unnecessary. I have to say that the reader's weird lisping affectations in the first couple books has been mostly corrected BUT he still misses his verbal emphases points. One of his most common mistakes is to lower his tone of voice and pause just right to indicated the end of a sentence when in fact he is in the middle of a sentence. It is a constant source of distraction throughout his narrative. He reads as if he's lazy and bored and just doesn't care about his performance. Really, this is a fantastic, excellent series. It deserves a better narrator.

Many words were badly mispronounced, confused with other words, or slurred. The quality of narration was bad enough that I will read Joseph R. Lallo's books but I will never again wince my way thorough another John Forbes narrated work.
