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.
Yes. It's a good series though sometimes its just more of the same (but the "same" has npbeen good enough for me to consume them all). This one was head and shoulders above the rest.
Great division in both voices and character styles. They really sound great and never get muddied with other characters.
I can't wait for the next one.
The story is awesome and Christian Rummel does so many different voices! He is the best narrator yet!
Yes, I would listen to it many times. It pulls on my imagination as the story is told.
He very good. I like the way he reads the story.
There may be some repetition of the stories but over all I enjoy the stories and want the next book to be written quickly to see how the fleet will handle the problems they face. Great job.
This is an entertaining series with good characters, space battles, and lots of action. Sometimes these space opera type series get too bogged down with political intrigue, etc. but the author strikes an excellent balance that keeps the story moving along. I read a great deal of serious material for work and appreciate being able to escape with some light listening that still doesn't insult my intelligence. Worth the credit for all the books in the series.
I have loved these books from the beginning. Cannot wait till the next book comes out.
I have loved this series all the way through. The addition of new aliens to the mix and the challenge to our prejudices and biases is great. This is an awesome new entry to the series and sets up so much more... I am anxiously awaiting book 3!
If you are just starting out in the Lost Fleet series, this is not the place to start. Go back to book 1 and see if it is really your kinda book.
For those who are in the thick of the series I can say I enjoyed listening to much of this book. Don't get me wrong it is really just more of the same as the previous books but I still felt it moved fast and was enjoyable. It was also done well enough to have me looking forward to the next book in the series.
My only gripes story wise was that it was as I said more of the same and that Campbell uses a few too many tropes. Mostly this is a minor issue overall but it is annoying at times.
Narration wise, Rummel has his own style which at first can be a bit dry but overall I never felt distracted from the work. Also like much else here he does his reading exactly like the past books so if you liked him before, this is more of the same.
So I can say in the end it is worth listening to if you are caught up but nothing new which is not all that bad if you've liked things so far.
I started this series at the recommendation of Steve Gibson and would recommend these books without hesitation
I would recommend starting at the first book and buying them all.
Christian Rummel is a professional who is worthy of my respect. This is the class of narrator that brings the story to life. I don't hear the narrator, I just hear the story.
