Great Halo story to bring in the beginning

A great book to start listening to Halo novels, especially if you never play the game. Scott Brick has a distinctive, clipped speech that is very precise and lends itself to various voices well. He brings the story alive and does an excellent job. The book is rich in details, background and Halo lore, and explains the whole reason that the Covenant came into being. The Halo story actually is a very good sci-fi platform and I highly recommend this book as your first.
