I enjoy this sort of book more as an audiobook simply because I can listen to the book while driving or dooing something similar, which lets me enjoy more books.
Not any single specific moment - more of the way the ragtag fleet transforms into a more unified military force over the course fo the book, in my opinion, that is the theme what made the book to stand out from other sci-fi books.
This was the first one I have listened to.
Definitelly - it was well read and a good storry.
I definitelly can recomend this book and entire series - both because of the storry and writing style in general and because Audiable have picked an apropriate person to read the book in a way that enhances the experience.
The story is dull. All the main character cares about is his self image! I'm over a third of the way through the book and they've just escaped--that's it. It's so slow. I should not have bought it. Unfortunately, the description is never enough, so I don't know if I will like the book until I buy it. Fortunately, it only cost $3.99.
No. There's not much difference in the voices.
It's too boring!
I like me!
Dont know never read the print version. I assume it has to be though as the narrator did a great job
the star trek series and maybe the halo series space action/drama Like it better then halo series and more action the star trek
first time listening

Books are a bit short for the price imo. well worth what they are but im cheap and look for the best $ per hour value.
I really liked the idea of this book: an almost mythical character from the past turns up again in times of need but it turns out he is just as human and fallible as everyone else. That's a really nice idea. I also really liked that Campbell cares about physics and manages to integrate the difficulties that would potentially occur in space battles into the book quite neatly, for example that it would take time to see and hear about events that are a couple of light minutes away because communication cannot travel fast than light.
What I didn't like is that he belabours these points a bit too much. I don't need him to explain the laws of physics to me every three minutes. I also though the whole "we are better than this"-mantra intertwined with the "I'm just human like you"-theme was way to repetitive.
Some fans of Space Opera will be more patient than others, with this first novel setup of protagonist internal conflict and supporting character dynamics…I will be in the more patient group and see where the Rip Van Winkle premise leads, giving the series opportunity to surprise me with something other than easily predictable directions. I'm not turned off just yet,, (the pots on the burner,, just no bubbles yet)...
I bought this book because I heard rave reviews about it. The story was engaging and I even found I was listening to it at odd times because I wanted to know what happens next.
Then, all of a sudden it ended. Just smack dab in the middle of the story. No conclusion of any of the story. Just "to be continued in the next book".
Now I realize that reading one book is a $100+ or 6 credit commitment. Do not read this book unless you want to commit to all six. It felt like this book was all set-up and no substance. It is a good tale but I felt cheated.
Yes, I knew that this was book one of a series. I enjoy other series, and it's expected that there will be some character arc across the series. I also expect, however, that one individual story will come to conclusion in each book and (as you can probably tell) the lack of ending just made be upset.
I am now torn between returning this to exchange for another book (ironically probably in another series) or making a 5 credit commitment by buying the next book in the series, knowing that the next book will probably have no ending either.
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.
