Although this was a re-read, I found myself enjoying the audio narration even more than I enjoyed my first read-through. Wil Wheaton really added to what was already there and his narration is phenomenal. This book is very humorous and full of funny banter. While I did feel a bit of a chill at being reminded of just how surreal 2020 was (it still feels like a fever dream, in retrospect), I still enjoyed the world building. Kaiju Earth is an interesting place, to say the least.
