    "Great story, albeit intense"

    The voice actor essentially is Colonel Riggs. Perfect conveyance of mood. The story is interesting - all the aspects of fighting off a computerized invasion force. The second act is often stressful, but such is the nature of the topic.

    "I love this book"

    If you are on the fence about crying this series choose to go on and finish. You will not regret it. I have listened to all of the books in the star force series and I love every minute of it.

    Story
    "Well that escalated quickly"

    The overall pattern of this series is to make everything bigger: bigger battles, bigger ships, bigger threats, bigger problems.

    The spectacle keeps coming. And I'm enjoying this ride.

    Story
    "Humanity has the upper hand, but for how long"
    If you could sum up Conquest: Star Force, Book 4 in three words, what would they be?

    Trust, friendship, betrayal.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The forming of new cultures in the stories that you would almost think that they truly exist. You will listen to learn more of the new aliens and allies that arrives.


    What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

    As before, he continues to give life to the characters of the story. Now he also brings voice, and life, to these aliens that you would make you almost think they exist. You will be surprised and immersed in this story continuously.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Again there were many and, as before, as a fan of this series, I will not spoil it.


    Any additional comments?

    Lets go for humanity and its allies.

    Story
    "worst of the series?"

    Lots of redundant information, lots of bloated writing. Backstory gets repeated often, sometimes within a few minutes. Characters do ridiculous things, like having sex on the beach while an alien invasion is overhead.

    Any additional comments?

    Kyle Riggs survived the another round in book 3. Now Riggs rebels from the Macros and returns to earth. Now Star Force are fighting the Macros to save Earth from annihilation. Will Riggs, Crowe, and the rest of Star Force survive this new hell?

    I love this series always a lot of action.

    Story
    "Not sure I can continue the series after this book"
    Any additional comments?

    Our venerable hero, Kyle Riggs, continues to single-handedly save the world, while the ever-grey Jack Crow does his best to behave like a spoiled brat. At this point in the series, I'm sick of listening to Kyle give orders and make requests of people without explaining his full plan, only to have those people argue or disobey when, if he had just explained the full plan to them, they would have got the idea and cooperated.

    I understand the author wants to keep the reader in suspense, but when in every major battle Kyle doing something crazy (again) and the story tension hinges on everyone following strictly and blindly to his orders (again), well that tension is so overplayed by Book 4, that I can't bear to listen to another word of it.

    Similarly, the interaction between Riggs & Crow is exactly the same since their first meeting in Book 1. OK. I GET IT. Crow is a self-serving bastard who will only attempt to save earth if there is no risk to his own hide. I'm over it. Can he grow as a character? Can their relationship grow? Can at least Riggs acknowledge that their relationship is not in the best interests of their species, and try to figure out something new? Is that possible? Nope. Same ol' subplot.

    I'm on Chapter 38 of 49 right now. Once again, the "Crazy Riggs Plan(tm)" is in play with no one else knowing his intentions, and subsequently everyone doing their best to screw it up because he can't be bothered to take one damn minute to explain it. After I finish this book, I'm putting the series aside for a while and diving into some new up-and-coming authors.

    Story
    "Repetative"

    If you listen to the previous books in this series they are all the same. There a few things thrown in to try to make the books interesting but it's all the same thing basically and it became boring very fast. I found myself falling asleep. I love the narrator he was amazing just the story line was uninteresting.

    Story
    "getting worse from book to book"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    50:50 - while there are still some brilliant parts in book #4 there also more and more (compared to previous books) dull and/or artificial seeming and/or annoying parts.
    While listing to this book I've turned down volume to zero for several minutes several times to skip annoying parts.


    What could B. V. Larson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The author not artificially bloating the contents.
    Too many parts of this book #4 either insult the intelligence of the protagonists and/or seem artificially constructed (to fit the authors current needs) and/or are just plain illogical compared to previous events in the previous books.
    This tendency started with book #3, already - but I thought it just to be lapse - I enjoyed book #1 and #2 a lot - but since book #3 the quality of the story has been declining continuously...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    About the last 15%-20% of the book are more creative and innovative again.
    I will not mention specific scenes as this would be spoilers.


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

    Maybe - I'd definitely NOT go see it in the first few weeks. I'd wait for critics and opinions and then maybe go see it if overall comments were good.
    There's some good material in there to make a movie - but only if the screenwriters and director know what they are doing.


    Any additional comments?

    (1) I'm unhappy that I also bought book #5 in advance with previously listening to part #4 - big mistake!
    (2) The performance of the narrator is perfect - throughout all four books so far the reading of the books has been very high quality.
    (3) English is not my native language
