The average review rating should say it all. Please do not look at other reviews as what they point out will begin to weigh heavily on your perception and may diminish the experience of the story, which is outstanding, as is the narration. I highly recommend listening to this audio book first, then coming back and reading the comments.
This would appeal to people who like right wing politics and pulp sci-fi
No, but I won't buy the rest of the series
Yes, did a very good job
All of the right wing politics
Don't let the cover fool you, it almost stopped me from reading it. This is a good book, and a funny one.

Wished the author would allow the flow of the speakers to move a littler better. Hearing the reader every 5 seconds saying " he/she said " gets pretty distracting and grating but the story does a good job to keep you going.
I loved this book. It was well written, It is not a Hard SciFi book but just a fun read.
OK, I finally have figured out that Sci-Fi is not my genre. I enjoyed Dune and saw the high star rating and decided to give it a chance. Though the narrator was great, the story line is not believable nor interesting. I think it takes an exceptional author to create a sci-fi book that will cross boundaries and allow non sci-fi people to get into the story line. This is not one of those exceptional authors in my opinion. Will not be going on in this series.
This is the first book by John Ringo that I have read, and I want to say that this book is one of the best reads I have had in awhile. So many authors today, it seems to me, feel that in order to be good they have to make the story dark or complicated. Well this story was a relief from that style. I found it very witty, insightful, and extremely refreshing. It's nice to read a book where you feel good and refreshed after reading it. The thing I liked most is the positive outlook for the future it has for mankind. It is indeed a real page turner. So throw off political correctness, the entitlement mentality, and embrace the mentality that has made man great all through history, LIVE FREE OR DIE!!!!
no magic, no witches, no dragons, no fantasy, just good science fiction well told
a feeling of anticipation
ringo's opinion re. of the warrior "class" . his opinion of government officials.
