This is book 4 of the March Upcountry Series...first 5-10 minutes is synopsis...I think I'll wait for the first 3 books..
I am sure it is still a good listen, but the first 5 minutes really makes you want to hear the first 3 books.
I can not find the right words to describe what is wrong with this book. Poor quality work is all I can come up with.
I finished it just to see what happened to "Dogzard"
I enjoyed the first three. If it were not for Dogzard, I would want my money back. This book reads like an amateur's work
I stopped listening at the beginning of the last chapter, and only went back and finished it because I wanted to delete the file from my MP3 player. Still, if you are in for a penny, you are in for Twenty Five Dollars, so you might as will finish reading the story.
The Star Wars and Star Trek references were unnecessary, distracting, and out of place
O.K. The story line is good, though at times the amount of detail about imaginary places is overbearing. My problem with this latest episode is that the language and dialogue took a turn for the more "risque". Now the characters are more into foul language and sex. Not X rated, but certainly more towards "R" than the previous episodes. I had to finish it though with so much time invested, but if this was the first book. . .
I like happy endings and realism that is realistic rather than gritty.
This book has everything that we loved about the first three in the series, except that our heroes have finally made it off planet.
The stakes are higher, our band of heroes is smaller (and still shrinking, alas), and the story gets darker.
There are parts of Prince Roger's character arc that I'm not entirely convinced of, and more of the same long tactical and political conversations that bored me in the previous three books in the series are back to bore me again in "We Few." Likewise, Ringo and Weber deliver plenty of long, detailed fight scenes--some of which bore me tremendously. Maybe it's a pacing thing?
I will absolutely read the rest of this series. I want to know what happens next!
The conclusion of a nice trilogy, it's more of the same as the two previous books. A good entertaining swashbuckling adventure. Easy listening for when you just want to relax with a nice fast paced story.
" I have my mind... & a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge." -T.L.
The fusion of futuristic sci-fi and archaic style characteristics of the time (sword play, philosophy....) and finally the weaving of a complex ending of Prince Rogers journey to a momentous conclusion that makes me wanting MORE!!! Its refreshing to have an author unafraid to kill off any character without second thoughts no matter how important you might think they had to the story... similar to RR Martin... I want more bodies, more violence, more wit from the empire of man!
When I first read the Lost Fleet series I thought that series was not bad, not as vivid or complex in characters but the 2 series have parallels of a group of people trying to reach home
The very end and the conversation Prince Roger and his mother have... very funny and entertaining
We may be stupid humans but we are starting to become very angry stupid humans
This series is easily one of my favorite, right up there with Legacy of the Aldenata, Dresden, Caine, Nightside
I've gone through many, many books. But, I can't think of a series of books that I've enjoyed more. Maybe in a few days or weeks I'll think of one.
I greatly enjoyed all four books. My only regret is that it does not continue. It feels like there could be another 3 books or so to see where Rodger could go next in his development.
I am angry that this book, apparently the fourth in the series, became available before the middle two and was advertised as a sequel to the first book, March Upcountry. One of the best audiobook series ever, but now the middle books are ruined for me because this one recounts their stories in detail. Grrrr.
Great story, but listen to the other books first.
