Publisher's Summary

Hidden in the Nevada desert is America's most advanced aerospace-weapons-testing facility. Dreamland is the place where the nation's top minds come to develop artillery and aircraft that push beyond the cutting edge. And where the Air Force's top guns come to test them, on the front lines of a new era in warfare.

The fiasco of a spy's infiltration has the Pentagon looking for an excuse to close Dreamland down. To clean up the mess, and save Dreamland from the congressional chopping block, Lt. Colonel Tecumseh "Dog" Bastian is sent in.

He's just the guy to shake things up, and does so when a situation erupts in Somalia. Into a hotter-than-hot war zone, he sends his own daughter, the pilot of a Megafortress bomber, with a high-tech, unmanned flight system that could make or break the future of Dreamland.

    Story
    "A lot like Tom Clancy"
    What did you like best about Dreamland? What did you like least?

    If you like Tom Clancy you'll love it. Every weapon is cataloged, no alpha designation get unused.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Leave out all the excruciating details of weapons' detailed names and just use the real names of things instead of an alphabet soup of mnemonics. The ABC dropped the Xyz123x12 cartridges into his XXX-23 and fired. What? Seriously does the author think I can or want to remember every alphanumeric he drops?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When people were actually talking to one another with something to say.


    Any additional comments?

    While I normally read Dale Brown easily, this one was difficult. IT was so full of acronyms and technical detailed weaponry descriptions that I wanted to scream. Also his characters were all very macho, even the women. It seemed that the characters were being rushed in and about with no sense of reality or real character. They were all in exactly the right place and time, highly unlikely plotting, all tough guys (and gals) and the enemy were fools. In an attempt to make it seem topical, America is at odds with Iranian Muslims in cahoots with Somali pirates and the heroes (all of them) come to save the day.It channels Tom Clancy with "See Jane Run" characterizations.

    Performance was fine.

    "Love Dale Brown, I can't believe he wrote this."

    I'm stunned Dale Brown put his name on this I was so disappointed. It may be the reader but I barely got it finished. It's not good.

    Story
    "Book name well chosen"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is one of most boring books I have ever listened to. It was named well- Dreamland will surely put you to sleep - not good if you listen to books in your car like me. The story was so slow moving and the characters uninteresting I gave up about 1/3 of the way through. I don't think it was the narrators fault it was the material he had to read. If you like books that just continuously military jargon and no real world conversation you may like it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dale Brown and Jim DeFelice again?

    No Never


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    What character would you cut from Dreamland?

    All of them


    Any additional comments?

    Don't bother with this one

    "Great Action - Well Researched - Great Value!"

    This series is inexpensive if you pay cash ($8) rather than using a credit (just over $11). The whole series is high on military action and even personal action (just a touch, which is all it needs).

    The series goes from their base in Nevada, to Hawaii, to Brunei, to Taiwan, to Mainland China and places in between.

    Not quite as good as Tom Clancy -- but close and very entertaining!
