While working as a passenger train conductor Michael discovered audio books, and fell in love with the ability to perform such a wide array of characters and knew immediately that was where he wanted to be. He set out to be a Voice Actor, and began learning in earnest all the ways to bring these characters to life. Recording in a built from the ground up, double walled, room within a room studio, Michael has been breathing life in to characters from all genres, romance, sci-fi, LitRPG, mystery.
Recently he hung up his Train Conductor hat to fully work from his home studio, taking care of his 2 mini-dachshunds, managing a podcast YouTube channel and working as an Audio Engineer for Pink Flamingo Productions.
Superbly narrated by Michael Norman Johnson, who reads intelligently with good intonation and separate voicing for all of the protagonists, human and alien alike, this is a well written, exciting voyage of discovery, pursuit, battles and first contact in the uncharted areas of space. An excellent melding of narrator and text. -Audible Listener
Michael Norman Johnson does his job. Like I said there are some honestly funny parts in this book ,and Johnson is half the reason they work. He could have seriously stubbed his toe trying to get Nessler right, but he nails the guy’s personality in just his voice, the same with the note taking party member. I enjoyed his pacing and his inflections, which gave the nice subtle hints as to what the characters were thinking. Mason made a good choice with Johnson. And here’s a disclaimer, as Forrest Gump once said, “No, we are not relations, sir.” So he earned the good word all on his own. And I totally need a Nessler Plushie now!!
Final score, 8 stars. I had fun with the book, which was mason’s intention all along, or else why would he call it 8-bit bastards? You’ll enjoy this too.
This is a great book for anyone who likes zombie/pandemic/ Walking Dead type of stories. This is a very short book. I purchased the audiobook version and wasn't disappointed. This book is action packed, and Michael Johnson as the narrator makes you feel like you are right in the middle of the action.
"It's like Master Chief and Cortana, but not"
It's the buddy cop book you never knew could be written.
Dracoulis writes good banter and even managed to make truly lol and not just pretend I did like when I text my friends after they send me a meme. I don't know that I would call this book a true LitRPG because there's no leveling system, armor or weapons ratings, and really only one quest. It's more of an immersive world hopper using games as a reason. Still a good book though.
Michael Norman Johnson does s great job with the narration. I found myself thinking that he kind of reminded me of RC Bray. He does a great job delivering the banter between Eddie and his A.I. partner.
I enjoyed the story and think as sci-fi, cyberpunk, dystopian adventures go it's pretty great.
