Cranky old fart
Hey, it's a great series to listen to while you are running down the road, and this installment is actually one of the better ones, although Anderson does tend to get bogged down in character development a little more than I care for.
He has a pretty good grasp of tactics and a great wealth of knowledge regarding seagoing minutia making the books a great listen. I keep buying them, so they have to be pretty good. I'd like to see a lot less talk and a little more action.
Mr. Dufris does a good job. Very consistent in the overall cadence and tone of the story.
If you are looking for a fun series to listen to, one not requiring any "in depth" thinking about, this is a great one, especially if you enjoy a good war story.
I love this series, this book was not the best in the series, but it was well written as I have come to except from Taylor Anderson. As always this book left me wanting the next book to come out. Generally I hate series because of this fact, but this one has pulled me in. The narrative was what I have come to expect.
This is hard to answer since they are all great, personally I love the time period these characters are set in. World War two was a hard time for America and this book demonstrates the determination that the men and women of this time period possess.
I liked them all.
They better not make a movie, they would ruin the story, it's way too big for the movies.
This series has become my all-time favorite. It’s packed with action and adventure, romance, suspense and great characters. I’m a stickler for details and Anderson makes sure that everything that happens has a practical and logical explanation. My wife thinks some of Dufris narration gets kind of corny but having listened to him narrate all of the books, the voices and accents he uses for the different characters just seem normal to me. I highly recommend this series of books.
This is the most entertaining series I have personally read/listened. Taylor Anderson's Military knowledge paints a very vivid picture. His story telling Keeps you glued to the story. And the story itself has evolved into an epic masterpiece. Its hard to read this and not fall in love with most of the characters.
The worst part of this book is that know that its over I have to wait another year or so for the next one.
Lost Regiment series; Jack Campbell's Lost Fleet series: a projection of the culture of the American military at its best into situations that were never anticipated.
I love books a lot
Yes i would!!!!!!
I like All of the good guys
He makes the Character come alive
Ready for book #8
Yes audio is great.
Characters are great as ever and naval technology is used well in story.
I have fallen in love with the people in this book. I can't wait to see what happens next.
Everything! I would love to meet the Lemurians and see the Grik. And Silver....
I know just who is talking when he changes characters. Wonderful.
A moment?!! This series is full of those moments that make you moan, laugh and cry.
I WANT MORE!!!!
Another solid addition to the Destroyermen saga.
William Dufris is still doing a great job with the narration. Voices are consistent and recognizable from previous books in the series. As with the other books, it takes a minute to get acclimated to the 'accent' of the Lemurians, but it really serves to emphasize that we are in a different world.
The story moves along at a fairly good pace. There are some areas which slow down, but that issue is quickly solved. The number of characters and story lines is beginning to creep upwards, however. There are definitely sections which feel rushed; there is a feeling that details and some character development are glossed over so that the story can shift to another flash point.
It is at a manageable state right now, but the next few books are in definite danger of having too many things happening at the same time, leading to quickly changing points of view and story lines, which will make things very confused.
Still, this universe just gets more and more interesting, and I'm really looking forward to the next book.
Taylor Anderson and William Dufris combine again to expand the world of the Destroyermen once again...and they do a great job of it. Please keep it coming but just don't take so long for the next book in the series.
