The publisher probably should have had a real Marine ghost write it for William Keith (aka Ian Douglas)
Maybe, but I will not listen to anymore in this series.
Good Story combined with excellent narration.
Marko Kloos is as good or better than John Ringo or David Weber. I hope this is a start of a series.
I was a Marine and a D.I. and the boot camp scenes were pretty good. There was a lot of difference between our ultra controlled boot camp and the one in Mr Kloos's book, but I can see how his would have been effective, plus his had the advantage of "washout" which meant going back to a life of extreme poverty and desperation. Those with nothing left to lose make the best recruits.
I was disappointed that the book ended. Been a while since that happened.
I never though of the blending of Will Robie and Oliver Stone.
I am not sure there is a comparison since this is essentially a short story.
The finale, which leads me to believe there is more to come and we might see Oliver Stone and his Camel Club working with Will Robie again. Hope so!
I dunno...use the title.
More, More, More
I was pleasantly surprised that the protagonist's two teenage daughters were actually the center of the story.
Every one of them. Prepare to go sleepless for a few nights!
Less complaining. It us clear that Jack Campbell was using this book to complain about his perceived state of the US Military and government, but it was a ham handed effort.
I have read his Lost Fleet Series and no where did the first Stark book come up to that standard. I just regret that I had purchased the second in the series at the time. Too bad Audible doesn't have a money back policy of some sort when a book disappoints to this extent.
All of them.
Too many characters and not enough depth. It is Hard to believe it is Unabridged.
