not bad for a kids to early teen hero story, but, not something for more mature reader/listeners

You see plenty of strange things when you're a PI in Las Vegas, but even that couldn't prepare ex-cop Robert Hoskins for what was to come. At first he couldn't believe that all those stories he'd been told as a child were true. But hearing that the fae had taken the casinos over from the mob was something else. Elves, dwarves, werewolves and faeries were just the beginning and battling dark mages, the opening act.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the story, but the poor audio quality of the narration was a let down. I would have rated it higher if it didn't sound like the narrator was at the other end of the room.
Sorry Andrew, you're a good narrator but whatever you were using to record your narration spoiled it for me.

2067 was the year I died for the first time. It was painful. Had I known how often I'd be expected to die over the next several millennia, I might have made a stronger effort to stay dead. The year actually started off rather nice. I finished my PhD in high energy physics and was promoted to lieutenant commander in the United States Air Force. My first posting after the promotion was to the Lunar One Air Base where I worked with my father, Dr. Robert Kimbridge, on "The Project".

If you could sum up Inception in three words, what would they be?

interesting

Slow down! The narrator rushed through the story at such a pace it made it hard to follow.

People say karma's a... well, you know. Personally, I don't think I'm that bad. It's not like I wanted this job. I wasn't even in my right mind when I accepted the position. Now, I'm surrounded by crazy coworkers like Lady Luck, who's a bit of a tramp, and Murphy's Law, who's a bumbling oaf. But the worst is Fate. He's got a problem with transfers like myself and I have to see him constantly. It's unavoidable, since we're hunting the same man, my murderer.

Any additional comments?

I've both read and listened to the story and both are pretty enjoyable, however, there is a distinct background noise which is noticeable throughout the story.
This was somewhat distracting and while it didn't detract from the story, it does push me to suggest the story get re-narrated in a "quiet room" withOUT the background noise.
