This books targeted audience is someone with the intelligence of a 12 year old boy.
The basic concept of the series was very creative and the alien species development is actually fairly good and entertaining.
But the hero has every characteristic of a horrible leader.Stubborn beyond belief.ArrogantStupid eager to kill off men without a good reason to do sounwilling to listen to adviceTears down the moral of his teamemotionally unstable Unable to learn simple obvious lessons from his repeated mistakes.(these characteristics have continually worsen as series progress)Victory is usually achieve by the hero denying reality long enough for it to magically change. Either the enemies weakness change or actual physics of armor/weapons change. reads like a really cheep action movie where the hero wins in spite making extraordinarily stupid mistakes that hand victory to the bad guys. But then by shear stubborn will power manages to pull off an unrealistic victory.
Almost every thing.
- The plot is almost a complete rip off of TV series from Heros. With a slight military flavor and limited set of super powers.
- The dialog of the Expendable. yes just about that bad.
- The main Character " a full grown man" has the same emotions of the hunger games teenage girl. It possibly even worse than the third hunger games book/movie.
- Oh yea, he also through in Jar Jar Binks for good measure. The sad thing is that Jar Jar Binks probably the most intelligent character.
I am not sure what to compare with but the tactics is frustratingly stupid. I am not a pretending to be a military expert. But seriously this was bad even by Hollywood standards. So I seriously hope our national security is never really dependent on this mans intelligence. Because if so we are screwed.
No, since the problem is the author, who would probably ruin any genre.
yes, the narrator did a decent job with what he had to work with. There narrator was the only thing that made the story bearable. (that and the unrealistic hope it would get better)
Frustration, hope, Frustration, Disappointment, Frustration, a little hope, Frustration, Anger, Frustration, and more Frustration.Ok, not the most frustration book I have ever read, but it is close.
I are curious like me and you will probably listen anyways. So am warning you that it continually get worse for the entire book. You will want to believe it can get better and the book might be saved. This is do to little parts of the book that aren't too bad. But do not trust this feeling it is false...... I warned you.
Yes, and I have. Having listen to lot of books across different genres, I think this by far one the best. I think that almost everyone would enjoy this book. Or at-least find it interesting.
A tie between Edmond Dantes, Abbé Faria and Julie Morrel. Edmond because he is simply awesome and somewhat critical to the main plot. The Abbe and Julie because their characters have a subtle yet profound effect on Edmond.
I am not sure if I have listen to John Lee before. But He does a Great Job in this book
I wanted to. But unfortunatly I was unable to schedule 47hrs long time slot.
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone. It has a creative and fascinating plot, entertaining and believable characters, and examines the difference between justice and revenge.
Awesome Manly Poetry
On par with The Count of Monte Cristo. These are the only 2 books that I have actually listened to more than once and will probably listen to again. I am not sure what I like most about them. But I think some of the key components are as follows. The characters are believable, and very few books actually achieve this. Both have creative plots without any blaring holes. Both examine our motives. And they are both just well thought out and written books back when people took the time to do thing wright.
Wait, there was a narrator? Hmm...I didn't notice, since the story came alive in my imagination. .....Yes, he was that good.
So many it might be easier to list the parts that didn't. Only I can't remember what they were exactly.
If you like either Poetry, Philosophy, Ships, Romance, Logic or just plan manliness. Then you will like this story. If you like them all then you will love this book, because it has them all.
