The characters are superficial and not especially likable. This is a boring and predictable "romance" story.
Produced a story with some depth and suspense, it is a ghost story..right?. I couldn't relate to these guys at all and slang expressions like "that would be so rad" drive me crazy.
This is suppose to be set in Scotland... Scottish accents...none.
I'm not sure where to even begin. I really like the overall premise, but the execution and delivery of this story was amateur at best. The dialog was lame and predictable, not much in the way of character development. The central characters are incredibly stupid and naive; after a few close calls you'd think they'd wise up.
There's a preach moralistic sub-theme running thought the story. I really didn't care to know about the families dark secret of STD's, or that Kyle and his wife waited until marriage to have sex. The plot line on Kyle's struggle with an "adulterous" relationship (oh no!) was ludicrous. And yes, I think he should have left grandma by the road.
Nothing by this author.
I'm not a fan of the narrator. He seemed as bored with this story as I was.
I found this story frustrating in that is was so close to being really good. I kept hoping the author would fill in the details and background information to give the story context. The characters are interesting and the plot fast paced, but without any point of reference to make sense. What happened to the world? Why is humanity dieing? What exactly are the Weir? Whats the story with the kid?
Drop the back woods drawl. This story is supposed to be set in the distant future (I think).
Die hard fans of the genre.
Only after allot of reviews.
The premise of this story is it's biggest weakness. Who really cares about a US Senator being chased by Zombies?
Allot of the dialog between characters is in Spanish. OK, I get it. The characters are bilingual., but I'm not. (Some day I'll get off my ass and learn a second language.) I found this really annoying after a while.
I'd waited until the last minute to select a few books for a long trip and would probably have passed this by if I'd had more time (not really into pain). The book is so much more than just a story about two guys into BDSM.The story is hauntingly beautiful, intense, provocative, often disturbing, and impossible to put down.
The historical setting & insight we're given into the thoughts and actions of the characters. The unexpected plot twists showing our capacity for hope & kindness even in the face of adversity.
The narrator is incredible! One of my initial concerns after beginning the story was if the deep south, Virginian accent would get annoying after a while. No worries. Mr. Naramore has quite a range of voices for the characters. I'll just come clean and say he has one of the hottest voices I've ever heard.
This book is all about extremes but ends with love and hope.
This is Victorian romance novel in disguise (minus the romance). James goes on and on about his conflicted emotions and guilt for lusting after the slave elf...
Logan's character is so effeminate I had to constantly remind myself the character was male.
The basic premise of this story is challenging. It's difficult to build a romance/fantasy story around slave prostitution.
Great job with a crap story.
The last 10 minutes. Seriously.... I was hoping for a little hot m/m elf sex at the end to save this mess. The dialog was neither romantic or erotic.
The Saga of Seven Suns is an incredible epic SF story, and I plan to continue to the PRINT version of the remaining books. I have no grips with the story line, only the new narrator who turned book 4 into a hillbilly western. Changing narrators is seldom a good thing and in this case an absolute disaster. I just wish I'd known about this before starting with book one.
Realizing the narrator was mispronouncing so many character names and that they were not new to the story line.
Anyone who'd listened to the first 3 books could have done a better job.Seriously, what was the man thinking?
I haven't given up on the author; the first two books were great. I just wont jump on buying until some reviews are posted.
I'd hoped book 3 would continue in the same style as the first 2 books. The story was choppy and rushed, with huge gaps missing in the action. The radical departure makes me wonder if it was even the same author.
Frustration and disappointment. This was a huge missed opportunity to wrap up the story.
I understand military messages begin with a long string on numbers and letters. I get it. Listening to the narrator read them aloud is VERY annoying.
Probably. I'm a big fan of the lost fleet series, but found this book incredibly boring. Don't expect the epic space battles and fast moving plots of the earlier books in this series.
How about some action and character development? This book is political intrigue minus the intrigue.
I couldn't keep the dialog between characters straight. The narrator sounded as bored with the story as I was.
The book has no redeeming value and adds nothing the the Lost Fleet series.
Not likely. I thought the overall story concept sounded interesting, but quickly became absurd. A computer programmer leading the Fleet....really? The main character is an incredibly arrogant jerk. I developed an intense dislike of him. I'd downloaded books 1 & 2 for a long road trip but gave up halfway through book two. (Go Worms!)
None really lived long enough. We're introduced to dozens of likable characters quickly killed off by "Admiral" Kyle's stupidity.
So many to choose from...probably the scene of Kyle lusting after a women moments after his kids are shredded to bits. What a prick.
