This was a great book, a book that you had to pay attention to, and the adaption is the same, if you lose interest, then you are lost.
There are a lot, and I mean a lot, of things going on. And in a novel, that's fine, but in an audio, maybe not so much. It's hard to follow who's talking, when it was cut and switched, because many of the voices had similar sounds.
Sarah Ovens was great as the cell, but the star of the show was by far, Daniel Brocklerbank playing Sheldukher, his acting was fan-dam-tastic. And though, McCoy was alright, and had a few great one liners, he has done better work, I give it a 10 just for the two mentioned, and the fact that Lisa Bowerman, was right on time with some of her one liners.
Replay is an 8, it's fairly enjoyable enough to listen to many times, this is probably an advantage, just to try to capture everything going on.
Special effects, was ok, except for The Chelonians, it was very very very hard to understand much of what was said when the top Chelonian was talking, way to much base in that sound.
The plot was hard to follow, and was cut down a lot from the novel, believe it or not, and it lost a huge player in the cutting down of the novel to an audio, but you can read the book yourself if you want to find out who.
Overall, a 7 is the best I can give it, I hoped for more, cause I love the novel, but just a few to many holes in the adaption to give it any more than that. Worth the money, but on the cusp of not being worth it.
