So far, The Champion is on par with the rest of his books. Listening to this book, thanks to an Audible coupon, feels like coming home. Kind of like when you move away from home after college, and even though you haven't seen your friend in forever -- you just seem to pick up right where you left off.
It;s the same way with the characters from Scott's novels. I feel like no time has passed since last seeing Quentin and Becca.
I'm also loving hearing Scott's voice again. He did not narrate the final book in the Infection series, Pandemic, and I did not realize how much I missed his voice. Well, I knew I missed hearing it on Pandemic, but boy, I guess I didn't know how much.
I'm only a few chapters in, but the action has already started. The characters are behaving in their old ways, which is a nice way to feel about the characters. Quentin is naive as ever. John Tweedy is still by his side, and Becca is still longing for her man. Quentin still doesn't understand the scope of his reach, and people are still always after him.
I love it.
So far, so good everyone.
