    Ending of the great series!!!
    Everything is settled,
    all plot lines come together and make marvelous work.

    From this point on I definitely like "Indian hill" more than "ZF"
    and Drababan is my favorite character
    I think he is the best one of all ever written by Mark Tufo.

    PS
    I would like to read a sequel to this series.

    TO MY FOLLOWERS:

    I don't know what I've done,
    but for some reason a single person spends his time
    putting the negative mark to every one of my reviews.

    He negatively rated 127 of my reviews in a day,
    I thought it was someones prank but
    recently he reappeared and
    repeated the same to those that I wrote since

    Please, If you don't like my reviews,
    just stop reading them, stop following me.
    There is on reason to start a Vengeance Campaign,
    Besides I pretty much doubt that you read all 139 books I reviewed.

  • Great North Road

    "Wow...Seriously, seriously great book..a 6"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    So that I don't bury the lead -- this is one sophisticated, complex wonderful book. The narration is great as well. I wish Audible/Amazon would allow folks who listen to more than 20 books a year to, just a once a year, give a 6 star rating. Just one. Like a premium frequent traveler rating. I'd love to see the books that made that list. I'm certain this would be get the 6th star from a lot of people.

    I enjoy historical biographies and hard science fiction particularly when the Sci-Fi comes in very long books or multiple book series -- with one or more of the following themes: modern space operas, complex storylines, detective or noir/cyberpunk overtones, cascading clever thoughts/dialogue and/or military. This has led me to earlier works by Peter F. Hamilton (Void Trilogy, Greg Mandel Series), Dan Simmons (Hyperion), Alastair Reynolds (Revelation Space Trilogy, Terminal World), Richard K. Morgan (Altered Carbon) and most recently Charles Stross. (Halting State and Rule 34.) (A swirling, clever, funny and very complex pair of police procedurals done just enough into the future to look at the next big thing in social engineering, computing, communications and just about anything else you can imagine.)

    I never thought I'd say that I liked another Hamilton book as much as the Void Trilogy -- and this is a slightly different type of animal. Where that was broad and wild, this is tight and classy. It is like Wallander (obscure Swedish police procedural reference) meets the Void Trilogy. It IS "modern space opera, complex storyline, detective or noir/cyberpunk overtones, cascading clever thoughts/dialogue and/or military."

    When I read Charles Stross' Halting State, I initially found it hard to get into the three rotating storylines and the fact that the narration is, oddly, in the second person -- but it was worth the work to do so. This one takes no such early work. Pay your one credit, hit the button an WHOOOOOSSSHHHH ! You are off. Like Halting State, it is a rock solid police procedural with a clever and appealing set of smart characters.

    It is like listening to a great new song...you sort of know the rhythm and style but WOW. Toby Longworth is perfect too -- superb meld of material and delivery. Like I said, a 6 on a scale of 5.

    New entry on the top ten.

  • Into the Black: Odyssey One

    "Great, Solid Military SciFi / Evolving Space Opera"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    While one book does not a great, sweeping space opera (usually) make -- this book is a solid foundation for what could be a great series. . .in the tradition of Campbell's "Lost Fleet," or other similar series (Ian Douglas, John Ringo, William Dietz, David Weber, David Drake, John Scalzi). There are really good ideas here, and excellent battles in space. The seeds are also planted for what is coming next -- along with a number of really good "concepts" about technology.
    I did not read earlier iterations of this book, just listened to the 'final' Audible version -- which I thoiught was EXCELLENT. The writing is not tight -- but tight is not what I think of as the 'be all and end all' in this type of "writ large"" type of opening salvo. And it seems clear that as this rolls out it will provide an opportunity for greater control of language and syntax. But this is no amateur venture by a mile. This is a fine story well written and well performed.
    If you liked the Lost Fleet you will love this. If you enjoyed the Dietz takeoff on the Foreign Legion, you will also appreciate the sinilarities here.
    I cannot wait for the next book -- and what more can you say about a new writer and series ????

    [See Review of Halting State]

    I enjoy hard science fiction particularly when it comes in very long books or multiple book series -- with one or more of the following themes: modern space operas, complex storylines, detective or noir/cyberpunk overtones, cascading clever thoughts/dialogue and/or military. This has led me to works by Peter F. Hamilton (Void Trilogy, Greg Madel Series), Dan Simmons (Hyperion), Alastair Reynolds (Revelation Space Trilogy, Terminal World), Richard K. Morgan (Altered Carbon) and most recently Charles Stross.
    Halting State and Rule 34 are a swirling, clever, funny and very complex pair of police procedurals done just enough into the future to look at the next big thing in social engineering, computing, communications and just about anything else you can imagine.
    When I read the first book, Halting State, I initially found it hard to get into the three rotating storylines and the fact that the narration is, oddly, in the second person -- but it was worth the work to do so. This book is less frantic and easier to track than the first one. Again though, it is a rock solid procedural with a clever and appealing set of smart characters. Once again, the FANTASTIC Scottish dialect (and absolutely tremendous performance by the reader) and will sweep you away as the twists and turns look like a cross between HOMELAND and a LaCarre novel. I have moved these two book up to my top ten list -- and hope that we get a wee bit more in the future.

    "Wahhh--Hoooo!!! The real thing. . ."

    Performance
    Story

    I had not read anything by Tony Daniel previously -- and have been unhappy with the last three books I've read. Too simple, or derivative. I keep looking for something like Dan Simmons' Hyperion series or Peter Hamilton's Commonweath/Void books. Something with a little "there" there. I also enjoy darker pieces like Alastair Renolds (Revelation Space) or Charles Stross' post-moderns (Halting State / Rule 34). I also like some good old fashioned military sci-fi like John Campbell's Lost Fleet, John Ringo's Aldenata Series (or his new Gate series).

    This book was a breath of fresh air -- complex players, clever plotting, a hard science edge. It is a very good start to what I hope will develop into a great series. It is Military Sci-Fi (somewhere between Ringo and Campbell) but with a little complexity and darkness mixed in.

    When I first started it, I thought: "Ok, bad aliens bomb earth. . ." But the characterization, clever (and well fleshed-out) aliens, and smart plot make this a cut well above the average. There is definately military sci-fi here -- and it is quick and intelligent. But there is also a well-laid foundation for broader thinking and deeper plots to come.

    The conclusion builds well, and by the time you get there -- you are fully engaged in the action. This was a pleasure, and I hope that there will be more to come.

    23 of 24 helpful votes

    Really enjoyed this book. Non stop action! Characters are well developed, dialog is good, narrator is good, and story is Zombified! Must read for all Zombie lovers.

    The main character sets out to vent his grief on Zombies for the death of his family only to meet a one of his neighbors who has also survived. She is petrified of the walking dead and wants to escape far away from the hordes of living dead.

    This book will keep you on the edge of your seat. You will not want to stop listening!!!

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"
