    "Military fiction fans will love it"

    Well written - well read - an enjoyable story set in the modern day with modern troops. Detailed enough to make one feel like you are there, but not bogged down. Strong characters, compelling story - an excellent read.

    "Very military tech filled story"

    This was a fair story, if you like military jargon and tactical language this would be a good story for you. Very masculine in the execution of the story, which is fine as the genre is one I like but I know it is not for everyone. There are villains and they are well developed and the good guys are cut from the right fabric and are a very wholesome type of heroic man. The politics are well presented and roll within the fabric of the story without much friction. The story has some ability to build tension and has some surprises but in the end things work out like you expect, not that that is a disappointment, the ending is fine and produced with some excitement and leaves you feeling good about the world. If you like military styled masculine action stories then this would be a good pic. Recommended for that audience.

    Story
    "Call me a fan!"

    Eyes of the Hammer was read out of order, or actually it was read to me via the Whispersync application with my Kindle Keyboard. I do enjoy the Audible offerings, listening when in the car, and reading when in private, but this one was enjoyed totally in audiobook format. I have been obtaining these books out of sequence, but each stands alone, and when I read one that should have been read before, it still makes sense and enhances my understanding of those read previously. The author has created strong story lines that are believable, strong character development, and lots of action with some mysteries thrown in. What more can one ask for?

    Story
    "Very realistic SFOD novel"

    This one was very realistic going thru the chain of command and procedures on how SF personal interact, prepare and execute missions. The ending was a little disappointing, not sure an SFOD man would behave the way the main character did to the civilian in the end, not important to the overall though, the very end could have been omitted anyway more of an epitaph, also he mixed up high schools, Dewitt Clinton is on Mosholu Parkway not Evander Childs HS.

    Story
    "Buy it if it's on sale."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. The story was actually quite boring and the ending was as very disappointing.


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

    You could sleep through it and not miss much.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Steven Cooper’s performances?

    Probably not: especially if he uses the same narrator.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The narration sounded so mechanical compared to others. Also, the corny accents were comical. This one's a $5 book at best. Sorry.

    "Well-read and exciting"
    Would you listen to Eyes of the Hammer again? Why?

    Yes. It's a fast-paced, exciting book.


    Have you listened to any of Steven Cooper’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've also listened to the Jefferson Allegiance. All of his performances have been very impressive.

    Story
    "Good Story but Tire of the Big Bad Evil System"
    What did you like best about Eyes of the Hammer? What did you like least?

    The lead character is nicely developed and the story itself is good.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes, it was a good plot and story line.


    What aspect of Steven Cooper’s performance would you have changed?

    He needs to do a little more research on pronunciation of military terminology.


    Could you see Eyes of the Hammer being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Sure, Hollywood would love this anti-military and anti-CIA plot line. Maybe even Woody Harrelson or Sean Penn. You could even have Rachel Maddow play the seasoned Green Beret Warrant Officer.
