I am a Chef and have two boys. I also have 2 accounts.
I am enjoying this series. i have finished the second book and will be buying the 3rd book to listen to. its a light read, easy to follow.
I downloaded this book after hearing about it on a radio show. I had never heard of B. V. Larson before and had never read anything by him until now. The story is one of the best I have heard in a long time. I am so glad it is a series and there are more to come. The narration by Mark Boyett is fantastic. He is able to bring the characters to life and I can listen to him for hours.
This is sci-fi at its best. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
An entertaining listen. I also enjoy books in a series and this is book 1 of 3. Science fiction and action. Can't go wrong with this one.
I don't own the print edition.
The very begining, can't say much without spoiling it.
The admiral of Star Force.
Even though it gets slow in parts the book keeps you interested.
I was pleasantly surprised by this, its been a while since I've sat and 'read' a book cover to cover and having had an audible account for a few months (and mainly listening to Bio's rather than fiction) I chose this to see how I faired.
This has a good story - well read and now the 'want' to go back and get the next in the series. Enough 'tech' content that stays true to computing as we (on earth!) know it, that makes it plausible and to keep you wanting to just listen to another chapter.
Not given 5 stars - its my first review! so can't really give it top ranking just yet.
Awesome story, super faced paced, and totally unpredictable. Narrator is a genius as well. Don't normally read sci fi, but this book has changed that. This one's a must.

The story line
No This is the first but I am downloading book 2
I've listened to over 200 downloads from Audible and this might be my first written review. I'm feeling compelled to write this one simply because I was so suprised by how successfully the author, and the reader, grabed my attention from the begining. It was a facinating take on a classic scifi idea. That said, the last 3rd of the book was not nearly as strong as the first 1/3rd.
First let me say I like the the narrator. He did a fine job but even when I tried changing the speed to 1.25 then 1.5, I just couldn't finish the book.
The story had the depth of a Saturday morning cartoon. The dialog was reminiscent of the original Star Trek series. He must have said "I'm a computer scientist" a dozen times as if that provides some deeper explanation. The relationship with the female character was as emotional as a Conan story. Robert E Howard wrote great adventure stories not books about relationships.
