I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry.
The narrator does a great job. The only problem I had with this one was that poor old Jack seems to be growing more naive as the story moves along. But no matter, you have to suspend belief anyway so I can cope with Black Jack losing his mind too.
If you like Space Opera, this is your series!
The Lost Fleet plots are decently thought out, but without an outstanding narrator like Christian Rummel bringing them to life, I fear they would all begin to feel the same. Mr Rummel manages to bring vibrancy to each new book.
My heart belongs to fantasy and sci-fi! Throw in some thriller/suspense, the occasional crime or romance or classics.
That is all I have to say! Read it. You will understand and it is quite possibly the best singular moment in his books so far.
Long haul trucker, nerd, and scifi fan.
The title is very misleading! This is NOT the 2nd book in the lost fleet series. Its a whole new chronology after the syndic war... perhaps I'm an idiot, but I felt chumped after realising the mistake
Middle aged Male, lives in England, works for US Government.
Pretty high, but I love this series. I eagerly await each new book.
Switching to the view point of the syndicate worlds was a great angle for this book
Great as usual. I love the his voice and he performs so solidly.
Get this book if you love scifi but also if you like a well though out story. I love the Lost Fleet series.
Not sure haven't read the print
Forever War - The take on time for space travel
The voice sounded like a sterotypical superhero, just a little over the top, but I'll buy the next one anyways.
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
As the author describes before the book actually starts, this book was written with a vast knowledge of battle formations and tactics. Therefore, the engagements were described in such detail that I could see them unfolding in my mind's eye. I enjoyed listening to the officers' thinking as to what the enemy might have been plotting and what their next move should be to retaliate. There were several subplots besides the battle scenes and the story was very exciting, but I think I would have enjoyed the book more if there had been just slightly less battle engagement and a little bit more character development and subplotting.
The narrator's voice is great, especially when he lowers it to be Jack Geary. So sexy!
from the beginning when john "Black Jack" Geary first woke up, i fell in love with his story. the fortitude and unexpected genus of both the author and his characters brought life and motion to the narrative.
The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier, Book 2 was well written, doing great credit to its genre that enhanced my expectation with unforeseen twist and turn during the main plot. there were also some laughs and unexpected moment that kept you at the edge of your seat... the way the author solve the situations has they arose was both believable and exciting
Yes, I drive light trucks everyday so audio is perfect for me!
I love the interplay between BlackJack, Djahni, Rioan!
He has the characters nailed! I wish someone would help him with CinC ONI. It's CinC (Sink) ONI. Two words, not Italian "Chinconi". Commander in Chief. Drives me nuts as a military vet!
Yes, it was hard to break it up for a five day drive.
I really like this series and I really love the characters. I can see Dan Craig as the high end Black Jack, Ben Browder, or Nick Fallon in a pinch! Halle Barrie, Jennifer-Lopez or Gabrielle Union as Capt. Djhani, and Rioan played by Selma Hyack! It would be good and The action sequences would be great to see on the big screen. I thought the author wanted to end the series, but I for one am glad he hasn't! I say, "Take your time and write it the way you want it to be!" I am looking forward to getting back to Alliance space and dealing with the twists and turns of outwitting the politicos at there own game! I say let them take each other out! Thank You!
I enjoyed the first book but with the second one, I kept waiting for something to happen. It just seemed like it was a bridge to try and get to a third book.
Not sure. At this point, unlikely I will try a third but will have to see how it is received.
