I had never read (or listened to) a novel by Cornwell before purchasing and hearing this one. I was instantly hooked and I'm planning to purchase and listen to all of the others offered on Audible. The book was superb, the character development was rich and plausible, and the story telling was excellent. My only disappointment is that not all of the "Sharpe" novels are yet available on Audible (a situation I hope they rectify quickly). I might add that the narration by Frederick Davidson is absolutely fantastic. His ability to mimic almost any voice and accent only adds to the richness of the story. I heartily recommend this book to all.
If you like science fiction on the lines of The Lost Fleet, you'll love Swarm. It's smart, establishes a believable technical basis and delivers great action and suspense. The character development is very good as is the narration.
I enjoyed every minute of it and have already purchased the next audio book in the series. I suppose that I can't offer a better recommendation than that fact.
