Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Eric Flint’s 1632 presented listeners with a fascinating alternate history of the Thirty Years’ War, through the eyes of a West Virginia community tossed back in time to 17th-century Germany. Here, Flint teams up with acclaimed science fiction author David Weber to continue his epic tale. In 1633, the West Virginians attempt to use their modern-day knowledge to build a resistance against the forces of France, Spain, and England.

    "Great sequel!"

    Just as good as the 1st. A few more history lessons in this one, but a great listen.

    "Great series"

    Combo of real history and science fiction is a winner. Characters are consistent and believable although the authors' political bias is ---obvious--- to put it mildly. Getting /Spinoza in there was very clever. Looking forward to rest of the series.

    "A Team Worthy of Greatness"

    If 1632 was great 1633 is better in every way. David Webber is a master writer and Eric Flint is a master idea man and historian. The two work together skillfully and cover each others weakness very well.

    In sales and on the road a lot. Love SciFi, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, and the occasional Non-Fiction. Funny. Opinionated.

    "definitely better than the first!"

    like the first it is readable but the characters are less frustrating, the politics better, and and pace more comfortable.

    Story
    "Still great story, still fixation on profanity/sex"

    Fantastic story line--it became apparent why the author chose the 30 year war as a background soon after starting--I had absolutely no clue when I began.

    First let me say that I grew up in a coal mining community (Carbon County, no less). I understand that in order to portray miners that there is a certain amount of profanity. I also understand that the author needed to illustrate the contrast between the West Virginia mining community and the depravity of the 30 Year War. However, even a coal miner knows how to speak properly in the presence of his mother or commanding officer or president of the United States. It almost seemed that instead of a profanity or mention about sex that fit the story line, the author purposely went back after the book was written to see if he could insert even more profanities (instead of one or two, he would add six or eight in a string). The same thing about unneeded sexual description. I don't see this in most of the best seller novels that make it big. It is unfortunate, because the plot development is quite good. There was no need to go back and add "extra." I fear that it will hinder this books mainstream popularity. I hoped that it would settle down in book 2, but unfortunately, it didn't.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Nice"

    A worthy continuation of the story. You really start to get attached to a few of the characters.

    Story
    "Blended into an alternativ history but not shaken."

    Gannon and Flint blend their characters into the historical panorama the way Obrian does with character depth and a realistic picture of war with his classic sea novels. Add a bit of Conneticut Yankee in King Arthurs court and you have the picture. The books so far are well thought out with a good deal of gee wiz and a huge battle but not enough exposure to make each tedius. Great Narration. Lots of listening hours for the money. I just bought 1635. Can't wait to hear.

    Story
    "Confusion"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story was disjointed and confusing ,perhaps if I had the book in hard copy I could easily refer to the story and characters and keep things in order


    What was most disappointing about Eric Flint and David Weber ’s story?

    Loss of characters and no easy way to return to find them


    Would you listen to another book narrated by George Guidall?

    Yes George is a fine narrator and does well with the story. I am going listen to the book again in couple of weeks , I will pay very close attention to the story hopefully it will be better the second time around


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    confusion and disapointment


    Any additional comments?

    Hopefully this makes sense to some one
    Regards Ken Arndt

    Story
    "A classic book"
    If you could sum up 1633 in three words, what would they be?

    Must Read Book


    What did you like best about this story?

    One of the best treatments of the stranger in strange land I’ve read.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by George Guidall?

    If I must. To get the rest of this series I would. Although I would rather have Eric Sandvol or Charlotte Petsopoulis as narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Come on with the rest of the series and Grantville Gazette please. This is the one thing I will go out of my way to buy.
