Day Watch (2006/2010) Sergei Lukyanenko and narrated by Paul Michael

This is a review of the audio version of Day Watch, you can read my review of the story here.

I’ve gotten used to the narration, where the read speaks in a regular American accent when he reads the descriptions and thoughts of the characters, but speaks in a Russian accent for the dialog. I still think it’s a little odd, but I’m better with it now.

What was very interesting is that although I don’t care to read the first of the three stories in Day Watch, “Unauthorized Personnel Permitted”, I found that I enjoyed listening to it. The narration somehow humanized Alisa Donnikova more than my reading of the story did.

The other issue I had with the narration, the segments of musical lyrics, wasn’t as bad either this time. I think there was a slightly longer pause before lyrics. But then, there also might have been fewer lyrics in this book than the first.

I really enjoyed listening to this story–possibly more than reading it, because I actually didn’t mind the first story. You could most likely listen to this story if you skipped the first, but really, I don’t know why you would want to.
