I haven't read the print version, but the audio is great-engrossing and well performed.
Portenia! Pocking wrench!
the great! accents and timing
nothing extreme sorry
If you want to enjoy a fine tale, like good battle scenes, charming characters and imaginative settings, this is a great series. You could nitpick about the sometimes overlong narratives and the recapitulations because its a series but the rest is so much fun, why bother. Of course there is more than a subtle dose of geopolitical allegory but since I share their views I quite comfortable with the the undercurrent.
Characterizations and battle craft remind of other Ringo novels, a winning formula so why not.
Just letting him get through the names and places alone is worth it.
Audiobook Junkie... Love all types of Science Fiction
The story continues as Roger and marines march on toward the space port. There are more epic battles to come along the way and the writing is as good it is in the first book.
I don’t have a lot of time for reading, but Audible allows me to listen to all the great books that I thought I would never get to read.
I absolutely loved the characters in this series.
Any book by John Ringo is worth a listen!!!
The most memorable moment for me was when I realized that I wished I could stand and fight alongside Prince Roger, and I no longer just wanted someone to just punch him in the mouth
a terrifying journey to manhood surrounded by the wilds of an alien planet.
The 4 Book Series is Simply Outstanding!....
I've listened to the series on 3 occasions and enjoyed it each time!
Highly Recommended to anyone who enjoys action and adventure when seemingly impossible odds are in play.
Stephen Rudnicki's narration is wonderful too!
Driving over 100,000 mile a year since 1983, I got hooked on audible books on tape 30 years back. I now listen from my bicycle 2 hours a day
And Dogzart is a huge lizard. Prince Roger is an unlikely hero and jarheads even Basick jarheads aren't usually my favorite characters. And the natives are giant 4 armed Scummies covered in slime??? Endless battles with 100,000 or more dead Scummies as the result can get pretty repetitive and the loss of some heroes we come to like is tough to take.
It takes a heck of a book to overcome those 'shortcoming' and this is one hell of a book and series.
Sure it drags on a bit with 3 full books from the time the characters crash land on Marduke until they take off for a flight back to Earth but 90% of this epic is very imaginative and interesting. Mr Weber loves his ancient weapons mixed with the new and his future worlds back in the Dark Ages. I listened to the entire series and enjoyed almost all of it. 4 stars.
this book is all about marines....squirmishes, battles, wars...a mission and their honor and duty to fulfill it..in a far away planet.
If you like milatary novels, this will work out well.
the narrator is second to none, john ringo and david weber make for a great team. i am downloading some of webers books. before now i have not listened to any of his. cant wait for the next bood to download.
I read John Ringo some time back in the first of this series and loved it. With Webber this is a fascinating story. Haven't got to the end of the series yet, but the military strategy is fasinating.
