I really enjoyed these stories:
"Fireborn" by Robert Charles Wilson
"The Lady Astronaut of Mars" by Mary Robinette Kowal
"Highland Reel" by Jack Campbell
"Muse of Fire" by John Scalzi
"Declaration" by James Patrick Kelly
Getting to hear some wild idéas/stories from some great authors in a fun way. I don't regret buying and listening to Rip-off, as I have learned about a few other writers and want to listen to some of their other works.
Yes. Because knowing more about the story, I would like to hear the start again. Also, great voice acting.
Crow - I can really like the way he speaks.
No. But that's my fault, not the book.
The story starts a little weak, in my mind. Not boring, just a little too extreme for what I could believe. But getting past this, I started to enjoy the book a lot.
This book is nothing as the movie with the same name. Only the title and a few elements links it to the movie. The book goes into the details of being recruited in the future, how the battles are fought and the technology behind it. And yes, there are more future tech in the book versus the really low tech movie.
First time we hear the details about how the infantry moves over the land, the description of the controls of the suits and how it's coordinated.
I like the story - maybe a little predictable but not all the time. I finished it quite fast, when I first started to get into the book.
But I would have liked it even more, if they had a woman to do the voices if the women.
