    Story
    "Great listen for Mil Sci Fi fans"
    What did you love best about Extinction?

    Solid story, keeps it interesting with frequent action. Often when I listen to several books of a series in a row I get irritated with some of the writers repetitive quirks. I didn't notice that with the Star Force series.


    What other book might you compare Extinction to and why?

    Similar to Ringo's looking glass series but better, less pseudo-science and lengthy techno lectures.

    15 words? Well, let me see. I liked this series. It was well above average. Action packed, fast moving, and very cool. I bought the series and went book by book. I am glade I did.

    Story
    "Wow awesome Great story and builds well"
    If you could sum up Extinction in three words, what would they be?

    Learn, build, conquer!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Not just one thing i can say i liked. The plot is great, the addition of programming and logic (which i suck at) makes this story so much more interesting. The way the story grows makes it an instant classic for me.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Boyett – was your favorite?

    Kyle Riggs is my favorite character because he's got usuable intelligence and he's pretty funny too.


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

    Not in this book, but in the first book because of what happened to his family.


    Any additional comments?

    Great listen, and it builds up well.

    Story
    "Very Middle of The Road"
    Would you try another book from B. V. Larson and/or Mark Boyett?

    The narrator sounds a lot like Brian Cranston from Breaking Bad. Not that that is a bad thing or anything that is just how Kyle Riggs looks like to me now. I would definatley try the next book in the series just to finish the series but it did not blow me away.


    Would you recommend Extinction to your friends? Why or why not?

    No my friends don't like sci fi so if wanted to get them hooked i would not recommend this one.


    What three words best describe Mark Boyett’s voice?

    Heisenberg Breaking Bad


    Did Extinction inspire you to do anything?

    Yes get The Lost Fleet series


    Any additional comments?

    The story didn't blow me away and just getting the main character's perspective is getting old. I would love to have seen the humans attack from the the eyes of one of the aliens they went up against.

    Story
    "The star force saga boldly goes"
    Would you listen to Extinction again? Why?

    That is a certain. In fact I am planning to listen to the whole series soon enough, from first book to the last (Dead sun).


    What did you like best about this story?

    It remains true to the first person story perspective. It keeps you attached to the story while making sure you do not lose track of what is happening. You feel like your the protagonist in a story that is going its way and the only way to go is with it. And you will go with it to the end.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Boyett – was your favorite?

    That is difficult to say, since Mark Boyett does a great job in is voice performance. He gives each character in the story a unique voice, allowing you to recognize each character exactly in the story. His ability to voice the emotions of all the characters in the story is also a very big plus. This makes the story much more immersive.


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

    There were several, but if you really love the first book, you would know that it would not be right to spoil this wonderful saga.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone who loves the first book, will love this story for certain.

    "Surprisingly good"

    I'm not a huge fan of military sci-fi, but this one has some pretty nice twists on the standard pattern. For the most part the characters are likeable and the plot is interesting.
