Really enjoyed this. Fiction based in historical facts with a full cast. One or two of the characterisations were a little full on for me, but not having read the books, I'm taking that as the tone in which they were written. Slightly confusing at times but will definitely listen to more audio books from this series.

I haven't yet seen the film so I can't say how it compares to the book. There's a lot of tech speak and facts and figures, but they are incorporated so well that it never becomes tedious. Fabulous book. I'll leave it a few months and then I'll listen again.

Perfect

One of my all time favourite books beautifully read. If you love this book I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Where does Contest rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best, but that might be because I've read the book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Contest?

The fight scenes between the main character and Belios

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Didn't have one that stood out

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

At the end when they are just sitting on the train. Filthy,tired and being completely ignored. No one knew what they had just been through.

Any additional comments?

This narrator is one of my favourites and he didn't let me down this time. If you're a fan of Matthew Reilly its a no brainer

Worth a listen

Story well written and tech stuff well explained. Not sure about the narrator though. Not bad,but I found the accents and different voices a bit distracting. Perhaps it would have been helped by being done as a multi performer narration.
