This is a great series. The battles take a more realistic approach to dealing with vast distances in space that I find fascinating. Great Characters too - realistic, fallible...
Using the Jump Point to jump away from Alliance Space
Yes, absolutely. A great book for a road trip! Also one that, if you can't listen to it in one go, keeps your mind drifting back to it wondering what will happen next...
Great start to a series. I look forward to where it will lead!
If you like hard (okay, maybe just a little squishy) science fiction with a huge dose of drama and solid, if not overly deep, characters, Jack Campbell is an author to keep on your list. I've listened to the whole Lost Fleet and Beyond the Frontier series', and there wasn't a slow or disappointing book in the bunch.
It's all about politics and space combat, and a clash of cultures that could ultimately save humanity.
My only complaint (and it's really petty), is that by naming the books after random ships it's a little hard to keep track of what order they come in. I needed a cheat sheet that I kept on a memo in my Blackberry so I knew in what order to listen.
I said it was petty.
Great narration by Christian Rummel. For space opera and science fiction fans these are a great listen.
I don't like to listen to things twice
The captain; I knew more about him and he was the most fleshed out.
I really like the way Christian Rummel's way of performing, providing inflection, thought, feeling and different voices for different characters.
I don't own the print version.
The very begining of the book. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who has not read the book.
Yes. I think Christian Rummel is one of the better narrators on Audible.
Not really, but the overall flow of the book is excellent.
Overall one of the best Space Battle book I've ever heard.
Yes without hesitation, It has the realty of what future turmoil has install for the human race.
It gave an actuate human side of a predicted future events.
The fleet commander John Geary fighting with his alter ego Black Jack.
Just read it, it's realistic for science fiction.
This is my first "space fiction" experience. I cant believe how the author pulled me into this alternate reality. I don't know what I am going to do when I run out of Lost Fleet books.
I enjoyed Black Jack. His ability to change a broken system and save the Alliance was most impressive.
Black Jack and his humble and inspired approach was very interesting to me.
Yes and I hope he Keeps them coming.
By the 2nd book I liked his narration.
Its a great story.
One of the best SiFi books, eihter print or audible
intriguing characters, "scientifically sound",
this could be our future
strong advice: read them all!
Didn't read the printed version. I LOVED the story and the narrater just made it better
"Black Jack" Geary. He wakes up after 100 years . . . experiences a severe case of culture shock . . . but proved his great character, morals, and principles by treating the enemy humanely and teaching the Captain's of the other ships that old lost arts of battle can and do work. His questioning of himself and his abilities made him as a character in a novel seem more "human."
If I have I don't remember.
Early on when he meet his Grand Nephew and then lost him because he sacrificed himself and his ship to defend the slower auxiallry ship from being destroyed.
Impossible odds, impossible solutions. (I know, four words, but sue me)
The protagonist finds himself in an impossible situation. He sucks it up and wins. With style, with class, with honor. Campbell's done well.
My first listen to either of these narrators, but the narration was great. Rummel's the voice of Blackjack now.
Extreme outward reaction? Not this book, though some of the later in the series. I did not hesitate to get the next in the series though. One book and I was hooked.
I purchased the physical copies of the entire series to lend out. Yeah, they are that good.
