Jeff Harding is phenomenal in this role his voice suits my Jack Reacher perfectly I couldn’t wait to get back into this book it was brilliant! Twisty, turney, like a good thriller should be. Plus the best knife fight I’ve ever read .
Brilliant well done

I loved this book so many cool stories all well written and read. The icing on the cake was the final tale, set some point, (150 years I think) in the Ex heroes universe. Humans have come back but the X virus lies dormant in some creating a more domestic issue for those few whom have it and who should have died but came back.
Great short tales and well read worth listening to if you’re a fan of mister Clines. I am

A very entertaining audio book, with lots of tales of giant monsters and most of them told from different perspectives or clever slants on the classic genre which made it all the more enjoyable. I’ve never really gotten into the Kaiju genre. But these tales have certainly helped open the doors for exploring more tales.

I love this series Mr Child has done it again. His books are consistently entertaining. Made even more so by Jeff Harding’s voice and performance. A book I could not wait to get back to. I highly recommend it.

At 50 yrs old, Im late listening to this book, having watched the movie countless times. But I was rather pleased to discover the movie followed the book so very closely.
In fact I think the changes the movie made helped make the movie a little better; a rare thing indeed!
Overall an enjoyable book and a great story. I’d recommend trying it.

Everything I’ve listened to by this author has me enthralled. I loved this book, admittedly it was a little slow to start but the characters had enough to keep you interested. The story is classic Sci-Fi and well written. Fabulous characters and great plots. I call it classic because unlike many companies in modern sci-fi they didn’t have their own security section of mercenaries. Here they had to call in the US marines, so much more interesting 🤓
A great book and a great listen. I highly recommend it. 👍
Ray Porter did a sterling job of narration and bought all the characters to life. Even the girls, which is hard for most male narrators, Ray seems to have a great knack or skill for it. I loved his portrayal and his voice was perfect for describing the Ants

I must admit I wasn’t sure when I first started this book, but 15 mins in I was enjoying it and I was looking forward to back to it after I had reached the first chapter.
It was like Star Trek but more gritty.
I’ll be getting the next book with my next credit

What did you like most about Phantoms ?

The idea and the construction of the tale

What did you like best about this story?

The main characters were pretty believable and the bad guys were basically whatever you conjured up in you, the readers mind.

Have you listened to any of Buck Schirner’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to Buck before but he Narrated very well. A very enjoyable performance

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

No

Any additional comments?

The ending was a little quick, cut off I felt it could have done with a longer explanation.
It may be just me but I felt the Two human bad guys were just thrown in at random it appears. I felt they weren’t really required

Well written well narrated and soooo bloody interesting! It’s opened my eyes to what’s occurring globally to the point I listened to it again.
But this and listen, it’s awesome 😎

I always wanted to read these books but after listening to Mister Gigante read it I’m glad I never got round to reading it. I was thoroughly entertained by the story and Narrator. Yes it’s a little dated but that’s how I like my Sci-Fi and such fun too.
