I thought the series was innovative at first, but eventually the main character began to drive me nuts. He is far too much of a super-sue. What is the point of having military advisors if you ignore them and do what you want? The female characters also began to drive me nuts. Sandra in particular is really irritating. Its like a normal woman is not enough, he has to make her a super hero. I can easily see Kyle becoming an overbearing dictator. He is well intentioned but he makes too many mistakes. This would be so much better if Kyle and his favored ones weren't the bestest at everything.
This is the best series I have ever found
Great book, amazing performance
Fun, Extra Fun, Exciting
Riggs internal monologue just rings too true on my own perspective
Smile, need to know what happens Next. Book 6 PLEASE
Too short, lets hope this series has an ending worthy of its beginings
I love books on personal development and entrepreneurship. For entertainment, I prefer the military sci-fi genre.
BV Larson's Starforce series is superbly written. The just when you think the protagonist has everything under control, Larson twists the story and our heroes are scrambling to correct their mistaken assumptions. Excellent character development throughout. There's just enough science to keep it real and allows the reader to give into the suspension of disbelief. I highly recommend the entire series. While the narrator does a good job overall, he doesn't do very good character voices.
Starting to see shades of similar storylines as in other space oriented sci-fi. yet still it is cleverly disguised, in the mannor of rap music "samples" other music. But definitely worth your time cash or credit.
I enjoy this series. It is at its best when it deals with space exploration, meeting new life and discovery.
The storyline is a bit tedious in regards to Colonel Riggs being the untrained senior officer who is more often taking the role of a Sgt rather than commanding the battle. Colonels don't typically lead assaults that any Lt or Sgt could handle.
Other than this one quibble it is a solid story and worth the read.
I like the space battles the most and the strategy and tactics that are employed. The land battles by comparison are not as exciting but I expect them to get better once they defeat the Macros completely and introduce some better enemies who are more treacherous and brilliant.
I'm still waiting for the little intelligent robot to get a command of his own and a more human appearance.
I listen to a variety of audio books constantly in car and gym. My reviews remind me what I’ve read & are hopefully helpful to you as well.
Went on binge w/ this very good series.4-4.5 stars on average. I'm catching up on reviews for books #4-11. At this point I'm ready for a break from the series, but will surely return for more. It's hard to make battle after battle interesting for this sort of space sci-fi book, but this series seems more creative than several similar books, and the overall story is good.
Was so hard to turn off and couldn't wait until the next time to start up again. B. V. Larson is such a great author.
