I would change how the chapters are arranged. There are many breaks in the story that appear to be natural chapters ends. the author chooses to continue with the story by changing setting, for example. As a listener, I would be nice to have some of those 'natural breaks' as good pausing points.
There are strong shades of the Master and Commander, Horatio Hornblower, and Honor Harrington series. It has all to do with the similarities in naval command themes.
When the Walker was raised and repaired.
Yes, it would make an interesting visual feature. The Lemurians would be great if played by Sacha Cohen and Cedric the Entertainer. As fas as the humans, it doesn't really matter who plays them since the visual attraction is based on the strange world.
I would recommend this book to a friend because the story is quite interesting, keeping to a science fiction setting that is well developed.
I like the political setting just as much as the technical details which are explained in a way that the listener is able to keep up with.
NIck Sullivan is able to bring the book's characters to life by using his voice in a consistent way that allows the listener to easily keep up with the story.
This is not a book that inspires the urge to listen to the entire thing in a single sitting. Although I was interested in keeping up with the story, it was not too difficult to take a little break every once in a while. That may have something to do with the way I listen to books, though.
Outstanding historical fiction
I have not experienced another book quite like it.
Chapman, the main character, was performed very well.
I almost wanted to listen to the whole book in one sitting.
The story seems to be getting larger, to the point that an end to it would be much more difficult to write within one book.
The most interesting aspect to me is the events described in the epilogue.
My favorite character, as performed, is Silva.
This book does not inspire me to do anything.
There is no obvious end in sight for this storyline. Feeling this way after book 7 in a series worries me about the authors ability to finish the storyline.
I've had a good listen about a topic that is so fascinating and filled with narrative. It is excellent to have a first person account of what is happening in the war zone and how that affects America's warriors.
I would buy another book from Mr. Junger because I liked the writing style.
No favorite character.
The book made me reflect upon the sacrifice made by some to help the rest of us.
