Yes, I am currently on the 5th book in the Lost Fleet series and enjoying each book more and more.
Yes, It is a vital part of the continuing story. However i feel it is the weakest out of them so far.
The perception of Victoria Rione and Desjani are spot on for their rolls in the stories.
I would love this series to be in a movie or TV series. it's very compelling and the character progression is amazing.
I felt as though this was the weak one in the series so far. It has a multitude of slow parts and doesn't have a whole lot of action. they are mostly fleeing trying to get to Lakota star system which a large battle ensues. I feel like there can be a whole chapters worth of the word Honor. it was used a lot and kind of depleted the meaning for me a bit.
Other than those tidbits i did enjoy the story and character progression. betrayal, discouragement, lust, confusion, and action all rolled into one.
It's starting to sound the same! The senator is always cranky. The captain of the Dauntless is always awestruck. Black Jack is having the same struggles. Are we going somewhere with this?
Intriguing....with a very powerful inquiry into the nature of human beings...especially how easily we "compromise" our values in the name of "winning"!
This story has some powerful moments, and these books are some of the best performances you'll ever hear. Clean adult fiction.
Love Sci-Fi, Paranormal, Fantasy & Alternate History genres. Prefer action over romance.
Yes. I like audio books better than print books books because I have more time to listen than I do to sit & read, so I get to enjoy more books this way. I listen every day for at least several hours. While I'm working, driving, walking, at the beach, shopping, house keeping & even as I go to sleep (use timer).
Getting to hear more about Captain Jack Geary's adventures.
Yes, I've listened to the entire series & love it. I've also done the Lost Stars series & loved it too.
I thought it was a fun series with lots of action, adventure, political intrigue & best of all, space ships & space battles. Has a brash, ballsy lead who cares about people & has a strong moral code. Also like that Campbell has strong female characters in his books. Not a lot of dead spots or repetition as the series progresses either, which happens too often in other long series (David Weber's Honor Harrington or Weber/Flint's Ring of Fire series for example, though I still really liked & read most of them both any way).
I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry.
The series is well written. It is, however, predictable. I enjoyed listening to it, It was very "boys own adventure" in space. An impossible hero and an equally impossible relationship that works out in the end in perhaps the soppiest ending I have ever heard/read in my life. It made me smile. So yes it's cheesey and it's really really obvious, like a brick in the face but it is fun. I mean it's nice every now and then to get on a roller coaster, you know that the danger is false, you know what happens to you but you enjoy it anyway once in a while. That's this series.
Great story with out standing narration. Lots of action everything to hold your attension every minute of the story.
I like Military Sci-Fi, regular military and military history. I like sickening amounts of technical details about weapons and vehicles of combat. I love tactics and survival/scavaging. The Bolo! series is by far my favorite series. Keith L aumer, William H. Keith, and David Weber probably my favorite writters for the series. I also love Day by Day Armageddon trililogy.
Yes, technical enough for me, yet fulfills, what I would think is what any sci-fi lover would enjoy.
Not sure, I was hoping you could tell me. Day by day Armageddon is my all time favorite book series. Favorite Sci-Fi series is Bolo.
Christian Rummel, is awesome. Great voices, excellent performance. Just as good, maybe better then Justin Snyder.
I love sicking amounts of technical detail, couldn't be enough. I would love for him to explain more about the ships, the weapons, the jump drives. But understand he would limit his audience.
This books lends waaaaay to much time with the interactions between Geary, Reon and Dajani. Not only do these parts drag, the Co-President Reon dialog just felt inconsistent in her love then hate then love cycle. I mean my god she really seems bipolar sometimes. I almost failed to get past the middle of this book but the ending was enough for me to buy the next book. I just hope there is less bedroom drama and more of what makes this book great at its core.
You really can't read one of the Lost Fleet books without reading the other five - it just isn't right. This series is well written, a great story and compelling.
