    Story
    "YGBSM"

    This book ought to be tossed out and started over. It's set in the 1980s and features a Soviet invasion of Iran and a US space ship in (scientifically impossible) orbit. POTUS micromanages worse than LBJ and Obama together. I think that the tactics might be all right; that's Brown's forte and the interaction of the missile with it's guide rails is discussed. I guess that only Navys fight wars for Brown. The crowning incredulity was when SECDEF called a 1 star general in orbit -- promoted him to 3 stars and made him work for a 2 star. That's when I skipped the middle 3/4 of the book and read the [weak] ending.

    "Good story, good narration, good pace"

    (I usually give a good, decent book 3 stars; so 4 stars is, in my view, above average)

    I enjoyed this story considerably more than I thought I would - it was a bit of a gamble.

    The story, and setting, is excellent. It's 1992 and the Soviet Union is alive and kicking. Without ruining the story, the US is drawn into a conflict in the Persian Gulf.The story revolves around a US space station and the surveillance and military support it can provide to this conflict.

    The story is fast-paced with plenty of action to keep the listener engaged - there's plenty of incidents involving, for example, carrier strike fleets under attack. There didnt seem any obvious gaps from this being an abridged story.

    The narration is excellent, with characters really brought to life thanks to some decent (if corny!) Russian accents.

    If I had to find a criticism, it's that I would like to have heard more about the main theatre of conflict - the Persian Gulf itself! Certainly it gets a fair amount of air time, but I'd happily listen to more on what was a well-researched, well played out cold war conflict.

    "great plot but a little over done"

    The plot ideas are great and the action fast and at times full on. The oration is great and it is very well read.
    The writing style leads to some parts of it jumping forward in quite large jumps, and this meakes it feel a little disjointed at times.
    All in all a good listen in the car its very easy to take in several sessions, plenty of good places to 'take a break.' It could have done with more filling in to give atmosphere, for me one to listen to and then forget not a revisit book.

    "This is what it's all about!"

    A great book and very well read. This is how an action audio book should be. No fake female accents, not outrageous stereotypical accents - just a well written book very well read.
