I was gutted to realise the story was almost identical to that of a book written by G Michael Hopf. the only difference is the names. I was able to easily guess what would happen next due to this. author can't expect credit for this. amd the reader can't seem to pronounce argh properly and sounds silly. he also doesn't portray shouting properly. so disappointed l.
Not sounding as dogmatically preachy as most end of the world novels The Defiant, Grid Down, is a pleasant surprise. The story , following the average "post EMP" plot keeps your attention none the less.
The narration was pleasant and I look forward to hearing more.

What would have made The Defiant: Grid Down better?
The narrator's voice is deep and likeable, and would probably excel at commercial voiceovers. However, I don't think his style suits audiobooks for the following reasons: he uses the same voice for all characters (confusing), he misreads/mispronounces things repeatedly (instead of saying "Nicholas' bag" he will say "Nicholas bag").
Perhaps I should blame the editor/producer, too, because it seems like a professional one would have ordered multiple takes when an error occurred.
Would you recommend The Defiant: Grid Down to your friends? Why or why not?
I will not recommend this audio version, but I would recommend the paper book.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joseph Morton?
Duke Fontaine, without a doubt!
