Quality definitely went down....

Pros
Some stories were decent and worth listening to.
Glad to hear the male narrator back for another round.
Cons
Huber/female narrator is awful. She needs to be fired, only thing she brings to the stories is bitchy attitude and pointless complaining.

Overall, authors need to develop the story lines based on the real XFILES characters. Scully is smart, sympathetic, and logical. Mulder is brave, curious, and persistent. This volume definitely misses the mark compare to the previous editions.

Disappointing!

Questionable Narration

Huber has no feel for these characters and this deficit affected the stories negatively. Pinchot's voice is a pleasure to listen to but he narrates very little of this book.

I actually like the show better these books

Half of my attraction to the Xfiles is the close bond between Dana and Fox . But this book makes her seem like a bitter and hateful and even at time quite abusive partner.

very entertaining

Pinchot is great at bringing the characters to life. Huber does a decent job as well, though her Moulder needs a little work. Both performances were enjoyable and allowed me to lose myself in the stories. The writing on all but one story was really good as well. I'd definitely recommend this one.

Pretty Alright

I really enjoyed the book. There were a few things that didn't follow canon very well but overall enjoyable.

Meh

First two books were way better. Most of the stories were rather dull. This book didn't seem to capture the essence of X-Files like the other two.

Entertaining

Most stories were good. The female narrator for some reason called Scully "Sully" more than once. Only one of the stories was sub-par...S amd M behaved in ways that didn't ring true. Otherwise, very entertaining and worth a listen for X-Files fans.

Enjoyable X-Files Revisited

This is the last of three anthologies written by various authors and edited by Jonathan Maberry. As with the other editions, these were enjoyable listens with some outstanding and others just good listening. Both Bronson Pinchot and Hillary Huber do fine jobs with the narration. As I have said previously, my nod goes to Mr. Pinchot for his splendid deadpan delivery as Fox Mulder. He captures the essence of David Duchovny without attempting to imitate him. If you are an X files fan, you will not be disappointed with this series.

Garbage.

The only that that resembles the X-files is the name. Barely able to finish with these obnoxoius characters.
