Would have a better rating if the audiobook production had been good. As it is, I'd recommend this as an ebook or paperback.

Tamahome I thought The Quantum Thief was neither here nor there, ha ha.

Jenny (Reading Envy) I have the next book and I'm eager to read it! Do you think you will?

Amy No, the Quantum Thief is both here _and_ there.

unknown FYI the us version has a different narrator and none of the problems you discuss. I really enjoyed it and will be getting the sequel soon.

Luke Burrage Maybe I'll try get the US version of the second book. I see no reason not to continue the series, only not to continue if the same producer made the next audiobook.

Noel Romey I plan to get the series sometime. I don't think Scott Brick is the narrator god many think he is but he definitely would do better than your description of the version you listened to. Brick is just one of those narrators you want to read at 2x or more. He has a very slow measured delivery.
