It's not my favorite book of all time. But it was an enjoyable listen. The story kept pace, and the science was interesting.
I've never heard him before. But I liked his voice.
I wasn't really "moved", this was more of an action flick than a tear-jerker. But the ship battles were fun to listen to.
I like that the book didn't just focus on describing an intricately deep world. It highlighted some cool things, kept the story moving, and kept me interested.
"ITS WHAT WE DO!"
Pacing was great...
"IT'S WHAT WE DO!'
Well written and strong performance. No real lapses in the story, with engaging battle sequences. I am on to book Two.
This book is great. The set up of the characters. The plot line. Everything. But then the battle sequences start happening and the author needlessly start dropping in all kinds of cursing that isn't helpful to the story at all. It goes from a pleasant listen to an F-Bomb every 4th word in the blink of an eye. Disappointing.
Cut back the length by about 10%. Try to say "tachyon" far less frequently. Add a bit of romance.
The first battle with the Drasin.
Yes, although his voices for women were not great.
Fun and action filled. The enemy and their capabilities remain intriguing throughout. The tactical decisions that allow the good guys to prevail weren't predictable. Action driven story, not character driven. A very enjoyable ride.
Eh its not bad but I wouldn't rank it as high say Starship Troopers, but maybe around a minor Star Wars extended universe book.
Nope first one. I like it well enough.
I have not. Hes not bad, he kept the character's voices lined up and was very clear in his reading.
Not really it was a little slow at times but I went through it in about four sittings.
It was a pretty good book overall. I think the only thing I have to complain about is that it was a slow. But I'll probably pick up the other books.
Those not familiar with common sense.
I can't think of one.
They are all bland and soulless.
The performance was fine but the story was bland and things just didn't add up. For example wouldn't you think if you'd just made first contact with an alien race in the form of a derelict ship where something unknown had dessicated the entire crew and there was a weird organic compound covering everything wouldn't you quarantine and decontaminate the troops on the return to your ship? Apparently not in that universe.
Also you've got this new interstellar drive system and the first ship to use it to leave the solar system is a massive battleship. That might make sense if you were already aware of and at war with an alien race but that is not the case here. Scientists and engineers who make things like interstellar drives happen are much more rational than that.
I'll be honest I haven't yet finished the book I'm at about the halfway point and if things turn around I'll update my review. I can't wait for Ryk Brown or Christopher Nuttall's next books as they are much better examples of this genre.
There wasn't passages filling text. The sci-fi (no spoiler) flowed from structured visualized progression crafting plot and technology to progressive story line.
Nothing really flows in the same venu
There was one voice mistake ;-)
If I were to say it would be a spoiler.
I wrote this because the book sets itself apart.
The length is almost 15 hours.
Discovery of advanced human race in far space who are being sought after and destroyed by robots from yet another part of the universe.
