Publisher's Summary

Michael Valentine, veteran and former member of an elite private military company, has been recruited by the government to conduct a secret counter-terror operation in the Persian Gulf nation of Zubara. The unit is called Dead Six. Their mission is to take the fight to the enemy and not get caught. Lorenzo, assassin and thief extraordinaire, is being blackmailed by the world's most vicious crime lord. His team has to infiltrate the Zubaran terrorist network and pull off an impossible heist or his family will die. When Dead Six compromises his objective, Lorenzo has a new job: Find and kill Valentine. As allegiances are betrayed and the nation descends into a bloody civil war, Lorenzo and Valentine must face off. Two men. Two missions. Only one will win.

    "Not what I expected"

    I am a huge fan of the MHI series and the Grim Noir series. So I have been meaning to check out this book but was a little disappointed once I got a few chapters in. From the plot of it I thought that it was going to be more serious than his other series. Now there where no gangster gnomes but it was overflowing with one liners and humorously stereotypical characters which made up for that.
    I also know these characters from his other books already. Besides some small differences in their back stories the core characters and even the villains seem pretty identical to the MHI team.

    All this said the book is a run and gun action shooter and in that respect it completely kicked ass. My assumptions going in to the book is really what made my rating only good and not great. Larry writes great action sequences and did not disappoint in Dead Six.

    Satisfied Audible listener since 2002. I mostly listen to Sci-fi and anything by Stephen King.

    Story
    "Two stories smashed together rather awkwardly."

    There are two tales here and both could stand on their own but making them into one felt awkward and somewhat unbelievable. That's along with the complete lack of a likeable lead character meant this story did not have the same appeal as other works by this author. Narration performance is very good.

    "Meh...."

    Predictable story line. Did have enough promise that I hung in till the end, but never really improved on a flat plot. It really seemed like the narrator needed a bit of time to settle into the characters. I found the narration difficult to listen to through the first few hours, but the saving grace by the end.

    "Good book poor reader"

    I like the story and the pace. But the reader ruins some of the lines. Some characters are put on so much they sound mentally handicapped. These are supposed to be hard chargers not chuckleheads

    Story
    "Characters that are very hard to like"

    Having read other works by Larry Correia, I expected anti-government rhetoric, machismo, and detailed descriptions of weapons, but this book brought in a new element, and that was a group of protagonists so despicable that you wanted them to get killed as much as the bad guys. Having a hero that is tainted is not a new concept, but in this case, mercenaries with a history of murder, extortion, and war crimes made it hard to cheer on the main characters.

    The narration was also a bit odd. It took a while for me to understand the method being used by Mr. Pinochet. Over all though, I felt it could have been read at a faster pace.

    In summary, the book did entertain me and it wasn't a wasted credit. I would place this in the middle of the "to read" list if you enjoy Larry Correia's other works.

    "Too long!"

    It kept my attention but the book was way too long. It could have been half as long and still have been a good story. Bronson Pinchot was the reason I picked this book. Not very interested the next book.

    Story
    "Way over the top and repetitive"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. While the book starts out as a real action thriller with excellent dialogue it devolves into stereotype behavior that keeps repeating the action over and over again.


    Would you recommend Dead Six to your friends? Why or why not?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Finished it but would have preferred a different ending.

    "Little hard to follow"

    This story is well written but is a little hard to follow listening to. This is especially true at the end where the two main characters (both written in the first person) converse quite a bit.

    Bronson Pinchot does a very good job though and is very entertaining especially when performing the villain.

    "Great Story, Odd Narration"

    I love Bronson Pinchot. I buy audio books strictly based on him being the narrator. In this case though, parts of the story are cartoony and distracting. Vocal inflections for Carl in particular are silly.

    Beyond that, it's a great story. I like Larry Correia a lot and am working my way through his library. This one is a little different stylistically than his others but I assume that's Mike Kupari's influence. It's not a bad thing, just different.

    Overall this is a decent book but could have been better with less cartoony characters.

    Story
    "Maybe better read than listened to"

    I enjoyed this book, and thought the narrator did a pretty good job with the material. This is a story that has 2 main male protagonists and they both speak in the first person. The problem is they are both North American with nondescript accents. So while the voices are pretty distinctive for all of the other characters, the two main characters sound pretty much the same. The change in POV is announced, but there were too many instances where I didn't know which character I was with until the content gave me a clue. This is no fault of the narrator, who is obviously skilled. I imagine that when the author describes a character with "no discernible accent", it kind of ties the narrator's hands. As a listener though, being 10+ hours into the book, and still not being able to really differentiate between the two main characters was almost enough to make me start listening to something else.

    Story
    "Dead brilliant"

    I read the first bit about three months ago and gave up, I was too busy with other things to understand who was who and got confused. Now I started the book in a two hour stint and everything fell into place. From then on it's been fantastic, Correia's humourous and fast-paced style (without the special gifts this time), in a realistic thriller setting that grips you by the throat and doesn't let go. Brilliant. I'm always stingy with the 5 stars but this book deserves it.
