Very Good listen. Story is very good and the reader is great. It's very important to have a good narrater. Mark Boyett is very good! All 3 books are worth listening to.
I like scifi. Space, Monsters, and middle earth. Don't try to sell me a book where every character has the same personality. make it real
I listened to all three, because I am a space junkie and because I wanted to give the series a chance.
The truth is I rolled my eyes and shook my head so often that I wasn't sure if I was missing some big joke. John Ringo (I doubt that's his real name) deftly ignores logic and understanding to bring you his fantasy of a world that could never happen and is so ill conceived that I'm quite sure most 7th graders could point out at least one logic hole in every chapter. He takes the most ridiculous and simple minded answers to every plot problem and then ties them together in ways that make me shake my head and turns my mind numb.
If you are easily amused, and or can simply throw away most or all of your intellect long enough to choke down this series then good for you.
PS. Mark Boyett is by far one of the most talented voice actors creating audible books.

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.
