Summary

Quicker is a near-future SciFi/Thriller whose young heroine, Ell Donsaii, is an intrepid athletic phenom who reminds one of David Weber's Honor Harrington. Like Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Ell is also a mathematical genius who, instead of counting sheep, works on her own theory of quantum mechanics to help her drift off to sleep. At once shy and concerned about her social skills, yet well loved by those around her, she finds herself at the center of a terrorist plot at the Olympics. The terrorists never contemplated trying to hold a hostage with the unbelievable quickness and athleticism of Ell Donsaii! A tradition of young, strong, brilliant, female heroines like Honor, Lisbeth, and Katniss Everdeen is continued.

Another addiction!

Dammit! I only listened this to pass time. Now I'm hooked like all these other bums! First it was Vaz, and now it's this one.

Top-Shelf fodder here!

I love this Audiobook! Great main character and supporting others. Fast paced, wickedly funny at times. I have a new, favorite author/narrator. I just finished this one, after completion of this review, I'm buying book 2. I highly recommend this book, and I bet the rest of the books are just as good. Actually, I was given the ebook version in exchange for an honest review, which I am tendering now. I had read 3-4 chapters into the ebook and put that away and paid for the audio version. Yes, it's that good. Although, from here on out to #15, I'm going with the audio version. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Upbeat and fun contemporary science fiction story

I have read all of the Ell Donsaii stories with great enjoyment. This is the first of the series in audio format and hope that the rest are forthcoming. This story is very upbeat, like all of Laurence E. Dahners stories are. It makes for an light hearted escape, and admiration of such a good hearted character. Ell is such a good person and she's off the charts intelligent, brave, forgiving, kind and just the sort of person I hope is out there.

Strong female lead but....

The prose is workmanlike but plodding. It’s hard to suspend disbelief without some smoother writing. And I happen to know that the min age for the service academies is a law and no exceptions can be made. I tried that once :-/

Enjoying a little kick ass

If you enjoy the occasional light-hearted entertainment with a chick that kicks ass and don't always need your books to be at the highest maturity levels, this book is for you (and me).

Highly entertaining, highly recommend.

Wish there were more

The Ell series is one of my favorites. I have now listened to this audio book three times and wish he would put the rest of the series on audio. My only complaint about this product is that towards the end the narrator starts adding r's to words that end in a's. Sometimes Anna is Anner sometimes not or Beretter instead of Beretta.
