If you like "Old Mans War" your going to like this - it follows the same type of story, Marines fighting bad guys, and not winning every time; Earth is a mess, your only real chance at a life is to get off the crumbling rock. There's the "Have's" and the "Have-nots", screw up and you go from being a "Have" to a "Have-Not", or even worse prison, and death. Maybe if you're lucky the Marines will come and recruit you.
Just couldn't get into this book. It felt like they where trying to provide a back story, but the story just never seemed to pull together.
Maybe you'll like it, however, I'm returning it.
It's funny and crass at the same time.
You'll see yourself in both sides of the story.
Once of the few books I've returned. Sometimes books just didn't convert over to audio that well, this is one of those cases
Facts about all aspects of Atomic Energy as well as Bombs. This book is going to make you rethink what you know about Atomic Energy.
A clear explanation why Fukushima happened, and what could have been done to prevent it.
So much history I was never presented with in school. I don't think you can take it all in the first time.
Finding out that the framers of our nation had such expansive personal library's was new to me.
This is a long book, however, if you are on a long drive, it would be a great book for you.
Was a very easy listen, did it in a day since it was so enjoyable
Very easy listening
I hope this isn't the last book because the series is so good.
I'm not going to give any of the story away, however, if you've listened to the previous books, your going to enjoy this one.
The story seemed to jump around and not flow properly. The performance was good, however, the story wasn't.
By starting a "new" series with "The Perseid Collapse" Steven Konkoly didn't even try to "up sell" you on this book.
If you listened to the Jakarta Pandemic this series ties in quite well, however, if you didn't listen to JP, then you don't feel like you missed the start of the series.
I'm now waiting for Book 3 :)
There's "hole" in the recording at 6:13:37, it seems to skip a few seconds - by no means does it hurt the story, or even detract. Just an error in the recording.
With that out of the way, this is a REALLY good book and can't wait for Book 3. Like book 1 it leaves you hanging and wanting more. If you liked Book 1 you'll like Book 2
