An ok book and an ok performance

I think this is a book more suited for readers who are new to space operas. The reader sounded very neutral and all the characters sounded alike. Overall this was an ok book but isn't on the same level as books like the lost fleet series or odyssey one series.

Ruined by lackluster narrition and bad science.

I have listened to dozens of recorded books mostly in the Sci Fi or Fantasy genre. I was sorely disappointed by this novel. The narrator did not seem to be suited well to this kind of book. He spoke with a monotone for most of the novel. And made it difficult to tell the difference between descriptive narrition and conversation. Words were even replaced by cheesy sound effects in some scenes. The novel looked like fun at first. What's not to like about huge space battles. But half way through the story it takes a left turn and leaves space combat behind. My greatest beef is how the author seems to have forgone even basic physics or even the slimmest reasearch into his use of 'nukes'. I am willing and even enjoy suspending disbelief when reading this kind of book. However the horrible science and lack of convincing descriptions were to much to overcome. Frankly the only reason I continued to listen was to see how bad it could get.

Horrible

This is by far one of the worst books I have listened too. There is no military experience or thought put into this book.

Mediocre

Would you try another book from Mark Terence Chapman and/or Mark Westfield?

Mark Terence Chapman = yesMark Westfield = NO

What was one of the most memorable moments of My Other Car is a Spaceship?

None come to mind.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

AtonalGave me a migraine

Do you think My Other Car is a Spaceship needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Still havent finished listening to the book so I couldnt say atm. Gonna down a painkiller and spend a few hours in bed/or any other soundlessand dark place conducent to aleviating said condition.
I would classify this as a "sheep" book.

Any additional comments?

Not worth the credit I spent on it so far 1/3 thru.
