  • The Ghost Brigades

    The Ghost Brigades are the Special Forces of the Colonial Defense Forces, elite troops created from the DNA of the dead and turned into the perfect soldiers for the CDF's toughest operations. They're young, they're fast and strong, and they're totally without normal human qualms.

    Would you listen to The Ghost Brigades again? Why?

    No, not again. Great story, but something would have to be mind blowing for me to listen again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The character development was very good.


    What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

    Dead pan deliveries.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really. But the motivations of the traitor Butan (sic?) left me surprisingly conflicted. For 90% of it you think this guy is the devil. Then he is painted in a way that makes you wonder if he might be right.

    Story

    The Star Kingdom has a new generation of officers! And this elite group hand-picked and trained by Honor Harrington herself is going to be needed immediately, as their first assignment turns out to be more dangerous than anyone expected. What was supposed to be a quiet outpost, far from the blazing conflict between the Star Kingdom of Manticore and the People's Republic of Haven has actually been targeted by an unholy alliance between the slaveholders of Manpower.

    Would you try another book from David Weber and/or Jay Snyder?

    No. The writing was unimaginative, and the performance was overly theatrical.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Weber again?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Found high pitched imitation of female voices intolerable.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Story

    In 1948, an alien starship crash-landed in the New Mexico desert and brought with it the key to mankind’s future. Code-named the Rho Project, the landing was shrouded in secrecy, and only the highest-ranking US government and military personnel knew it existed. Until now....

    Would you try another book from Richard Phillips and/or MacLeod Andrews?

    No, I would not risk money something that might be as bad as this. I had to stop after chapter 4. The writing is terrible. Phillips should really stay away from writing teenagers.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Sadness, because I cannot get my money back.


    Any additional comments?

    The performance was fine.

    Yes it is interesting, clever, compelling. It moves very fast, which I really like in an audio book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Iron Sunrise?

    Not giving anything away.
