    "An Interview with Campbell & Moon"

    This is a short (17 min) interview with Jack Campbell and Elizabeth Moon. I have listened to Campbell Lost Fleet series and am now listening to JAG in Space and have enjoyed them. So I was interested in hearing more about him and his writing. I had never heard of Elizabeth Moon is was intrigued by her. Apparently she was in the U.S. Marines and writes fantasy as well as military Sci Fi. She discuss the various series she writes I was interested in Vatta's War a military Sci Fi and will see if Audible has it. I did not learn a great deal about them as the interview was too short but they did discuss about how they go about writing and how the characters changed from their original ideas. This is worth the listen and it is free.

    "Interesting Conversation"
    What did you love best about Jack Campbell and Elizabeth Moon: A Conversation?

    They sounded relaxed and as if they were enjoying their discussion.
    I liked how they found common ground in hearing real stories in life around them.
    Is truth really stranger than fiction?
    I smiled when they talked about "suggestions" or ideas readers have sent to them.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It made me chuckle. The few times I have seen it done before do tend to stick with the audience.


    Have you listened to any of Jack Campbell and Elizabeth Moon ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    While I have read some of Elizabeth's work, this is the first audible I have listened to from either author.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A very interesting discussion about what goes into creating times and places that are not 100% based in reality.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent sound quality

    "Not Very Informative"
    What did you like best about Jack Campbell and Elizabeth Moon: A Conversation? What did you like least?

    It felt like an ad for the new books, not like a true discussion of their art.


    Was Jack Campbell and Elizabeth Moon: A Conversation worth the listening time?

    It's free and it's 15 minutes or so. Why not?


    Any additional comments?

    This is rather dated now - having been recorded around the Dreadnought release and the return to the Pax universe for Moon. Felt like two strangers thrown in a room trying desperately to say something interesting to get your to buy their newest book and yet be courteous to the other.

    "Interesting"

    If you like either of the authors have a listen to then having a chat. While I wish it was longer it still makes for an engaging listen
