Summary

An experimental training program produces a psychokinetic, a man who can move objects by mental power alone. He has other abilities as well.

But is he too powerful?

What if the Special Talents decide to go their own way?

Bland performance but serviceable

An interesting listen but some mispronunciations (more-tar?) and the generally banal reading took me out of the story.

There is an air of mystery and discovery about the abilities on display but those seem to have been shuffled to the second book.

The use of an echoplex to differentiate normal speech from telepathic communication is very clever.

I’m intrigued enough to kindle the second book but the performance on display lacks the kind of luster I’ve come to expect from audible.

Not a bad story, but PLEASE find a better narrator

Narrator reads very bland, and needs to learn and understand the terminology and nomenclature used in the story he's trying to read. Story line was good, but was constantly being distracted by poor narration.

Very poor narration almost like speech impediment

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Either learn how to pronounce military terms correctly, or choose a different genre. A vocal coach or editor was seriously needed on piece, it was like Mr. Berry wasn't even trying.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Matthew Berry?

James Patrick Cronin, Luke Daniels, R.C. Bray, Jonathan Davis, Tom Lenno

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Combat Wizard?

none it's unabridged

Any additional comments?

I realize that the more popular narrators cost more, but for audio you get what you pay for. I have enjoyed most of the authors written works to date. The military commentary and southwest references (Ft Bliss/El Paso, and New Mexico) are spot on.
