I like Military Sci-Fi, regular military and military history. I like sickening amounts of technical details about weapons and vehicles of combat. I love tactics and survival/scavaging. The Bolo! series is by far my favorite series. Keith L aumer, William H. Keith, and David Weber probably my favorite writters for the series. I also love Day by Day Armageddon trililogy.

    Would you listen to The Lost Fleet: Courageous again? Why?

    Yes, technical enough for me, yet fulfills, what I would think is what any sci-fi lover would enjoy.


    What other book might you compare The Lost Fleet: Courageous to and why?

    Not sure, I was hoping you could tell me. Day by day Armageddon is my all time favorite book series. Favorite Sci-Fi series is Bolo.


    Have you listened to any of Christian Rummel and Jack Campbell ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Christian Rummel, is awesome. Great voices, excellent performance. Just as good, maybe better then Justin Snyder.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I love sicking amounts of technical detail, couldn't be enough. I would love for him to explain more about the ships, the weapons, the jump drives. But understand he would limit his audience.

    To start off, this is not as technical of a sci-fi series as I like. Nothing like Jack Campbell's Lost Fleet Series. There are enormous battles, but they aren't portrayed as large and on such a epic space scale as they could be.On that note, this is a very good, well written read. Very long at 20 hours a book, after book 4 I would probably go 1.25 scale on the reader speed. The narrator switches after book 3 I think. Hang in there, you will hate it at first, by book 5 you wont even notice. It will seem very slow, but if I remember correctly at book 5 it gets retarded! And by that I mean, awesome. Stuff starts coming together and the action really gets poured on. It all ends very well, and if there were 7 more books I would gladly read them as well. But I am looking forward to some more technical sci-fi. There is a book .5, I am glad I waited till the end of all the other books, it would probably ruin some stuff if you read that one first. All in all these books were probably written more for normal sci-fi reader who likes a good story, and doesn't have the need for technical detail, weapons and the like. If you need some of that, Jack Campbells series, or any of the Hammers Slammers books.

  • At Any Price & Rolling Hot: Hammer's Slammers Series

    This two-story compiliation, read by Stefan Rudnicki, offers two stories from David Drake's popular Hammer's Slammers series. In At Any Price, Col. Alois Hammer's indomitable Slammers are called in to support human colonists against a native uprising in this novel-length adventure. But even though the natives' off-world weapons are no match for the Slammers, their ability to teleport gives them a frightening advantage! In Rolling Hot, the battle-crazed troop of recruits and vets, led by Captain Ranson, must cover 300 miles of hostile enemy territory.

    If you could sum up At Any Price & Rolling Hot in three words, what would they be?

    Excellent read with lots of technical details! As a former military Field Artilleryman, Drake uses a TON of military "lingo" that is accurate and means something to anyone who has been in the combat arms. I love the technical detail, the fact he isnt afraid to get gruesome with his details. All of these books are great! Recommend!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of the characters where my favorite and developed very well.


    What about Stefan Rudnicki’s performance did you like?

    Excellent as always!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hammer: Rolling Hot
