Cobra: Cobra Trilogy, Book 1 | [Timothy Zahn]

Cobra: Cobra Trilogy, Book 1

The colony world Adirondack and Silvern fell to the Troft forces almost without a struggle. Outnumbered and on the defensive, Earth made a desperate decision. It would attack the aliens not from space, but on the ground - with forces the Trofts did not even suspect. Thus were created the cobras, a guerrilla force whose weapons were surgically implanted, invisible to the unsuspecting eye, yet undeniably deadly.

Publisher's Summary

The colony world Adirondack and Silvern fell to the Troft forces almost without a struggle. Outnumbered and on the defensive, Earth made a desperate decision. It would attack the aliens not from space, but on the ground - with forces the Trofts did not even suspect. Thus were created the cobras, a guerrilla force whose weapons were surgically implanted, invisible to the unsuspecting eye, yet undeniably deadly. But power brings temptation...and not all the Cobras could be trusted to fight for Earth alone. Only Moreau would learn the uses - and abuses - of his special abilities, and what it truly meant to be a Cobra.

    "Not Bad!"

    This book isn't bad to listen to. It held my atension, but it always seemed to be leading up to something action packed that never happened. It had some action but not what the name Cobra implies. The narration is very good, thats is what kept me listening. I'm just starting to listen to book 2 Cobra Strike. I hope it has more then the first book. Now don't get me wrong about this book. It's not a bad book, not by a long shot. I was just hoping for some nail biting action!

    "A Pleasant Surprise"

    I really didn't expect that the focus of the novel would be a study of human nature. But, that is what it was. The combat segments were fast and furious (that somehow made it more believable), which is much better than those stories that seek to fill 90% of the plot with combat. I'll defintely buy book 2.

    "Little action and Lots of talk"

    This was not what I thought it was. I purchased this because I read the “Star Wars Thrawn Trilogy” years ago and really enjoyed it, and I thought that this would be an action packed “ Military Science Fiction” story which it was not. It started out OK and it did have some action around the start of the book but most of it was just talking and politics. If I want politics I'll watch the news! If you want action and suspense then I wouldn't bother with this. I think that Timothy Zahn is a very good writer and by all means there should be a live-action film adaptation of the Star Wars thrawn trilogy or at least a CGI animated one. Its just that this book was not for me

    "Neat idea, but not that well executed"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I would not say my time was wasted, but this was definitely not "well worth it". I like my military sci-fi to have some humour, as well as action. This book was completely lacking in the former and fairly light for this genre on the latter.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Timothy Zahn? Why or why not?

    Probably not


    What three words best describe Stefan Rudnicki’s performance?

    It seems to me that Stefan Rudnicki would fit well on a classical theater stage (read: much pathos). Some might like this, but I prefer narrators who take themselves a bit less seriously and focus instead on making it fun for you to listen to them (like William Dufris).
