    Book hit on every level for me as an outdoorsman who loves sci-fi. Narrator was highly intellegent and had a great interpretation with nice tonality the audio quality was short of perfection. I yelled "Yes. Amazing, Perfect, DEATHWORRRRRLLLLD!!!" and such nonsense when it ended arter experencing a wide spectrum of deep emotions on the journey. Highly recommended.
