A great Military Science Fiction book that has always been one of my favorite book ever, and now the audible book is maybe even better then reading it. I think Tom Weiner's performance here maybe his best also as his voice is just perfect for telling the story of Felix. but the 1st few chapters Tom has you hooked and won't let you go.
Its one of those peformances that is so good and fitting for the book that I listen to this Audible book more then any other , so it has very high replay value which is always a great thing.
Love Sci Fi and Fantasy books since I was 8, starting reading A Princess of Mars series in Junior High School thanks to my Uncle Lester.
I first read this book in the early 80's and found it very compelling and riveting to read and read it several more times over the years. Enjoyed hearing it as well.
Amazing main character, this is a psychological novel as we get into his head and understand his life in an extremely dangerous place. Completely engaging and riveting to read and now listen to as well. Enjoy -- you won't regret it.
I've been trying to get into military Sci-Fi series like Starship Troopers and thought I'd give this and a several other books a try. Unfortunately, I can't really say I dug this one. It just sort of felt forgettable and dull.
It started off interesting but stalled for a while in the middle. I almost stopped listening to it there but I pushed on. It picked up closer to the ending and made the book worth listening to.
Definitly some interesting aspects of the story. I would've focused on Felix's personal story more and much much less of Jack Crow's. Jack Crow didnt compliment Felix's character only drew away from the main story of the book.
No complaints. Did a good job.
I think it could be.
I've got 20 minutes to go before the end of the book, and I must admit that I'm totally at a loss. The writing is disjointed. I'm not sure what the real story line is about. The narration is almost forced. I can't recommend this book at all.
Maybe, the descriptions weren't bad but the idea seemed recycled from one of my favorite authors.
Perhaps, but it's not at the top of my list.
I called the ending pretty early in, and the villains other than the anti hero are rather one dimensional.
I really liked John Steakley's writing style, and Tom Weiner's narration interpreted that style perfectly. If a sequel is ever written, I won't hesitate to read it. I will definitely read his other novel Vampire$. I hope he writes more novels. I'm a fan after just one book.
Armor is one of my all time favorites. The audio adaption is excellent. It's two fast paced Sci Fi thrillers in one, that will leave true Sci Fi fans and casual readers satisfied and breathless.
Once upon a time I used to think I read star wars books and thought I was a sci fi fan. This was the first book that really launched me into the science fiction genre. I had no idea what I was missing. This book really is an excellent read and I suggest it to anyone. From here I went on to broaden my horizons and read the classics, and contemporary sci fi, but I still have a soft spot for this book.
Highly recommended for fans of military sci fi
