Actually a better story. As far as "military sc/fi" goes this is more touchy feely than I like.
Not too bad.
It's not a book I'd care to edit as I don't think I'm the target audience.
Simple answer is a decent narrator. I'm sorry but the reading is pathetic.
Sixth Column by Robert Heinlein.
Almost any one. Scott Brick, George Guidall...someone.
It's hard to say as this is an old Novella and (as noted) the reader destroys almost any enjoyment value to be had.
Good book (I read it years ago) EXTREMELY POOR READER.
This is more a "romance" flavored book. I like urban fantasy but can't abide Paranormal romance. I probably set the "romance bar" lower than some.
Probably not. I've tried a few.
Okay. young. girlish.
Most of them I think. Really the ones where our protagonist waxed poetic about males she meets...seemingly any male she meets.
Skip this one if you're looking for Urban Fantasy not PNR.
I like the Repairman Jack books, this one is good but Dick Hill has done better.
Yeah a page turner.
James Marsters would have been good if they could get him.
Yes but I couldn't.
As I said good book, but the reader has done better in other books. I didn't like the voice he used for Jack.
There are entire parts of this I don't care for. The way "beast" is written, the cloying vamp relations...on and on. Also the reader tends to mispronounce words...
Constantly going on and on about hot vamps and how "beast" wanted her to mate.
disappointment moving to annoyance then to anger. I liked the way it opened only to have it crash and burn.
save yourself...unless you're a PNR fan.
Yes, it's excellent on almost all points.
The rest in the Dresden series. The Jim Butcher Dresden books are the books all other Urban Fantasy is compared to.
Marsters has become the voice of Harry Dresden. Even when I read the print versions of the books I hear Marsters' voice for Harry.
Not extreme, but I did laugh.
A better story line/better story telling would help. I like the subject as it's (as the cliche goes) as current as today's headlines. The problem is that the writer writes to and about one group. His characters are also the people who buy his nonfiction course stuff. Those who can and do spend hundreds of thousands of dollars ( literally) on survival gear and a bolt hole. The common folks, the great unwashed...the hoi polloi (most people) are the nameless mob who threaten the wise (financially well off) protagonists.
I really have trouble identifying with them as according to this story I won't last long anyway. M best survival in place plans anf efforts are (according to said story) pointless.
Didn't draw me in.
The narrator is Dick Hill and he does a good job.
Simply note what I have already said.
This is an excellent addition to the series. It slows down just a little in a few places (not great for military science fiction). On the whole however it's a fast moving story that hols true to the plot and characters of the story. The reader does a creditable job. enjoy.
I like this series, I like this book. The only down side here is that the story tends to bog down occasionally. It does however pick back up and remains interesting.
The narrator does a good job and this is overall a good read.
