This is a really long book that didn't really tell me anything not already known. After 2 days of listening I wanted to scream. But never willing to quit... I plowed through. Unless you want to constantly hear egotistical writings from generals, then skip this book.
After this experience, I will not purchase the final in the series. Quite a disappointment from the first in the series.
I've enjoyed Ian Douglas' work in the past and that's why I tried this one in spite of poor reviews. While I might try another book by Ian, I won't try any more from this series. As far as David Drummond's narration, it was horrible for this book. While Ian created a world that is greatly influenced by Japan, the narration was done with what sounded like a Scottish Pirate.
Bad accents and intonation made everyone sound scared and panicked
Disappointment. I listened to all but the last hour or so and just couldn't stand it anymore.
