I hate to start a series and not finish it, but this may be a first. The storyline just doesn't quite grab your attention. I kept waiting for things to become interesting.
I would be willing to give them another try.
Good god yes, just dump the narrator and try and write a sentence that contains more that four or five words.
Maybe.....I started the series and was determined to finish it because I had enjoyed the "Empires Corps" series and thought this one might take off. It never did and the narration was just horrid, making the whole thing just an unpleasant experience.
Some sort of normal human inflection and cadence to the story would have been a nice start. Maybe a bit of study into human speech would have been helpful.
Yes, turn off the story.
I've just enjoyed the audio version.
No specific character, all of them lent their own flavor to the story.
Venkat Kapoor only because of the " enjoy your Boogie Fever" line delivered so deadpan it was just hilarious.
Oh man this was great! My son and I were hanging on the very edge of the seat. This has to one of the best stories we have listened to in a long time. If we weren't cheering we were laughing.
Realistic as hell, heady, human and current. A very believable story line.
Yes. It was a great story with plenty of twists and turns to keep me interested.
The opening chapter with the King of England battling in France all the while the aliens were watching....
Yes, but as usual life tends to interfere with such. But when I had time it was well worth it.
David Weber did well with this one and Charles Keating is fast becoming one of my favorite narrators.
I would and have. This is really a gripping story line with an expansive and complex set of characters.
OWL. It is just funny that as a computer with all the answers Merlin has to pry the answers out of him. The interchange between the two and Merlin's exasperation reminds me of dealing with teenagers. I just have to laugh.
The death of the King and his defense by an extremely young midshipman Hector Aplin during the battle.
No extreme reaction except great enjoyment of the story.
David Weber is one of my favorite authors with his Honor Harrington Series. The Safehold Series has quickly become another favorite.
I believe the print version was better that the audio version.
Midshipman Potter was my favorite. Unpretentious and unassuming in manner. I think he was a nice counter personality to some of the others.
When Captain Blaine had to admit he has lost his ship.
Yes, even though it delved deeply into a cult that is blindly accepted by society it was an eye opener.
The history leading up to the murder.
The entire book was compelling
The follow on book by Krakauer is just as telling.
I have enjoyed the storyline from the beginning. I especially like the authors attempt to balance the technology and stay one step a head.
I think this is one of the narrators better presentations.Much better that Kevin Collins.
No, it is much too detailed and in-depth for a single sitting.
Any book is time well spent. I just think I could have spent it on a better book. It just drags. I can't say it was one of those stories that grabs you and holds you attention. This one just kept me hoping something would come along and start the ball rolling. At times there was a glimmer. But......it just never got there.
This is the second. I'll give him" A" for imagination.
Steady, unwavering, uninterested
No. It would be as disappointing as "Starship Trooper".
I hope Book 3 makes up for the short comings of the other two. I will most likely finish the series out just because I have to. Would not recommend this series to anyone.
It ranks as one of my favorite audiobooks.
I think his delivery is excellent and he carries the characters much better by virtue of his grasp of the Queens English..
