Deep Space Adventure

Crappy Narration

With Narration by Emily Woo Zeller

๏ ๏ ๏  MY RATING ๏ ๏ ๏ 


๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

Maybe, Emily Woo Zeller should stick to narrating YA books.   She is normally quite good but with this, she infused her voice with this breathy, sexiness that just came off as overtly comical and didn't work for me.  Which in turn made the romance somewhat comical and cheesy for me.

I tried to not let those issues influence my rating too much because overall this was fairly good adult-themed space romp.  Featuring a dystopian Earth, set in the future with lots of futuristic tech, space travel and people inhabiting other planets.  Plus warring factions, intrigue, and space-jumping, it sort of has it all.  The second book in the series is Bianca's story, who is Ada's (MC) sister.  Hopefully, she goes with a different narrator for this book, otherwise, I will probably skip it.
