    Story
    "Absolutely horrible characters"

    The first book in this series was interesting because of the fascinating mystery that unfolded slowly about why the alien ships were doing what they were doing, and the battle scenes were exciting. This book has very little mystery, allowing the author to concentrate unceasingly on his annoying characters. The main character is ridiculously expert at everything though he was formerly a computer science professor. He is apparently the greatest military commander who ever lived, continuously out-smarting professional Generals etc. His girlfriend, the only female in the book, is a ridiculous character, who seems to be crafted straight out of an adolescent's hormone-crazed mind. She is an impetuous sex maniac who always "needs" to be tamed by the main character. This was an annoying waste of a credit. At least now I know to delete the other books in the series from my wishlist...

    "I love marines in space stories"

    I enjoyed this, and the first book for the most part. I did so get tired of Rigg's girlfriend, and the battle at the end was tiresome, I kept getting distracted which is a red flag. I usually don't want to stop listening to the books I get from audible. I do not think I will finish the series unless I run out of books, I do have a desire to see what happens next, but it's not a strong desire, maybe if the girlfriend isn't in it so much I will give it a try, Also, the marines don't feel real enough, it sounds strange for this type of book but when I read I completely suspend my disbelief. I'm more in the David Weber or Elizabeth Moon camps, grittier more complex... but these books have been fun just a bit too slick,.

    Story
    "Fun listen - kept me engaged"
    Would you listen to Extinction again? Why?

    No, I almost never listen to novels twice.


    What other book might you compare Extinction to and why?

    There is not a lot that I have listtened to that I can compare it to it is a very unique aspect on an alien invasion.


    What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

    His narration was good, he kept me engaged and gave the story an extra life of its own.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    With an alien invasion you can not know who to trust.

    Story
    "I stopped reading after book 2"
    What did you like best about Extinction? What did you like least?

    The general idea behind the story was a good one but I thought the story was too simplistic and the characters are unbelievable. A college professor who is a combination of Steven Hawking, in knowledge, General Patton, in strategy, and Rambo in fighting skills.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I thought it was predictable.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was well done.


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

    I would wait for the DVD.

    "Love Story On The Battlefield?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I like the story but his character development is a bit hard to believe. The main character goes from being a teacher to a ruthless disciplinarian and it seems a bit out of character. More disturbing is the fact that he is the only soldier with a girlfriend along for the ride... the "love story", IMO, detracts from the main story and is just plain silly.

    "Never wanted a fictional character dead so bad"

    No one in their right fictional mind would follow Kyle Riggs into combat. I have been hoping and praying that someone puts a bullet through his poorly used brain.

    "Another great one"

    So far i am flying through this series, I just can't put it down. This book was just as good for me as the first one, maybe just a little less - but darn close. Lots of action and creativity. Great listen :)
