Loved Hunger Games, Ender's Game & Michael Vey. Looking for similar books.
Kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Can't wait to see what happens next!
I focus mainly on History, Endurance Sports and Science/Speculative Fiction books.
Ranks alongside Undying Mercenaries as the best Larson series.
The ending sequence in all of Larson's books is epic. In this book the ending is terrific and links directly to the next book in the series. In many ways there is no break in the action between books
Boyett narrates all of Larson's book and I cannot imagine anyone else doing them. He is Kyle Riggs.
The character development of his girlfriend gradually begins to take shape in this book. She becomes a more dimensional character, adding to the storyline instead of providing window dressing. Larson is a good writer and over the course of these books the characters change and grow.
For my money Larson is the best military, sci fi writer. This is non stop action, that doesn't pretend to be something that it is not. Solid entry into a series that gets better book by book.
No. Poor characterization
Change the protagonist into at least a sufferable dork. The "love interest" part of the story was fucking ridiculous.
The action sequences are passable.
No. I can't finish it.
This is written like a very poor 1950's science fiction story. Not something something published in 2011. Bought it on spec during Black Friday sale and never finished it.
This book took me over two months to finish listening to. I've been so busy that I couldn't devote the time I wanted. I usually finish these in less than a week. the takeaway there, the reason I mention it at all, is that it's a strong enough book that it heald my attention so long. much of that is owed to the narrator.
no character development, unbelievable characters. and no real understanding of how military units are or work (which is important when writing about one). only reason I bought this one is I thought I wanted to see how the story goes. I'm a completion is.
