Mediocre writing. The plot is nothing stellar.

The plot may get better in the other books, but I will not be investing on them.

Great Science Fiction - great performance

Although the story follows familiar beats, it manages to put a fresh spin on classic Sci-Fi tropes such as alien invasions and mind reading. Fantastic performance by the narrator as well!
