I'm thoroughly enjoying Larson's writing... Full of interesting twists and turns and unexpected outcomes. The interactions between man and machines and alien races are very well crafted and I think very plausible. Aliens are alien. The narration is
very well done.
Learn, understand, then decide whether you accept or reject.
Basically, the story is predictable here: heroes go against villains, you've seen it a mile away. This story seems to start to get somewhere, and the tactics/battle scenes are pure fun to listen to.
On the top. B.V. Larson continues this wonderful saga with another book and Mark Boyett continues to keep the characters alive with his voice acting.
The tough decisions that had to be made in order to survive. What it takes to be able to preserve humanity by destroying part of it while still maintaining your humanity. Sometimes the decisions that are required aren't always the easiest. Also your biggest enemy might not be the one out there but the one who is right next to you.
He continues to bring alive the characters that continues in this saga, From the start you will recognize each of the characters without even needing to hear the text. His ability to continue to immerse you in this story with his voice acting is still 5 stars worth.
If I had the full uninterrupted 12 hours of hearing time, I certainly would.
If anyone want to send payback to the enemies of humanity, continue this saga and find out what it takes.
Needs more character development
This is the 3 book of his I've listened to. Just not enough insight into the other characters, I don't think I'll try a third book I was hopping the author would develop his style.
Love the Narrator he does a great job.
I wont go in to the plots too much mainly if it 3 - 5 stars you may want to try it.
Kyle Riggs survived the second round in book 2. Now Riggs is Full filling the terms agreed to by the Macros. Riggs and his Rigg's Pigs (Star Force Marines) are fighting for the Macros in the next system as servants of the machines killing other biotic lifeforms.
Will Star Force crack and fade out or will they strengthen and survive Hell.
I love this series always a lot of action.
I started with book one, it was great. Bought book 2 a couple of months later. Loved it, was an excellent continuation of the Saga. I waited about 6 months, then bought book 3. Not only was this an excellent follow up to 1 and 2, it was a very, very good book. It brought new character and tech to the story. It was full of action and realistic battles between forces. The author used the same narrator and that always makes a series much better. Mark Boyett does a great job and really brings the story to life. He makes you feel like you are in the space battle joining forces with the troops. I will not wait to buy book 4. I like this series and will look forward to reading all the books.
What started off in volume 1 as very good is now, by volume 3, established classic. Incredible. Not an easy adventure. Like John Carter, it's just one damn thing after another, but how very orginal, and yet, how very personal and real.Words don't do this third novel justice.
And Mark Boyett is a fantastic actor. His characters are played with sensitivity, humanity and the "best and brightest" intelligence. He and Larson bring to us the entire future of humanity, remarkable as it is, and yet so very much like today.
Yes, of course. If they liked sci fi.
"Marvin" because he is "incomplete" and unstable and even more unpredictable.
He sounds like a tough Space marine colonel. Thats what you want from a voice actor.
It made me laugh alot. No crying in sci fi. Puleeease!
Dont even think twice about buying it. It was better than the second book which was better than the first book and I gave them both 5 stars too.
Love my sci-fi and fantasy, but delve into Historical and Biographical.
Story - 3
I found the book interesting as I am a fan of sci-fi/fantasy with space and aliens. I am not a great writer of reviews but the book itself had some parts that fascinated me with logistics and the survival of the main characters of the book, but it over time, would drag on in a diatribe or personal reflection of the mail characters. Now, sometimes these are not a problem in some books, but these tend to be a little more annoying than most.
Narration - 3
Now the book's narrator was ok (not great, not bad).
Overall - 3
I gave this a 3, as frankly, I consider this about an average story in its writing. The story line is probably a little better but some slow spots tend to drop it down a little.
