    Did you know you can put in a set of Ear-Buds, slap your Hearing Protectors over them, and Mow the lawn, Weed-Eat, etc, without your book being drowned out by engine noise? OR, you can just let the horses in the yard, and THEY'LL mow and weedeat (literally) FOR YOU!

    Story
    "It's getting "Long In The Tooth""
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Could have been time better spent if it didn't start to seem like this story is going to go on forever.


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

    What ending? Overall I've enjoyed the series...BUT...like all of these space military series this story has no apparent "ending" in sight. Don't get me wrong...the stories are good but at some point the loose ends need to be tied up. With "The Weak and the Innocent" I started losing interest when I realized that the initial battle to start the book was a continuation of the same battle at the end of book 13 and it still takes up a full 3rd of the entire running time of the book.


    What three words best describe Jeffrey Kafer’s voice?

    I thoroughly enjoy Jeffrey Kafer's narration and hope he continues to voice many works in the future.


    Was Frontiers Saga Series #14: The Weak and the Innocent worth the listening time?

    Of all books in the series I found it to be the least engaging for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Endless stories tend to eventually get tiring. Why not have a complete "story thread" run it's course over...say...3 books (remember when there were trilogies?). Then do a different story arc in the same universe with the same or different characters involved in another trilogy. Since I'm currently following several of these L-O-N-G story arcs I find myself reluctant to get involved in any other series for fear that I'll die of old age before finding out how the story ends. Too may authors seem to be relying on these "cash cow" series and it's getting incredible difficult to find a GOOD stand-alone sci-fi book. Just my 2 cents worth.

    Book 14 does not disappoint and is worth a credit. If you've made it this far, keep going!

    Story
    "Too short for one book"

    The way the story was broken up really cheapens the overall story. The flow is broken up and makes the story line seem to repeat with each book.

    Story
    "The story continues"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I think if you have read the series up to this point you sort of have to continue on.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Actually there was very little action in this book and I found the story lagged for the most part.


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

    There is just to much jumping around from one story to another and it chops up the book and it takes a few min to get your bearings where you are in the story line.


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

    I think this series of books would make a great movie but not in the traditional sense. I would not use real actors instead I would make it like a video game only at a higher level of technology. I think the technology is getting close to pull it off. I think once you got the basic artwork established the costs would get lower as the follow up movies are made.


    Any additional comments?

    Ill buy the next book, but I am really waiting for the finding of the Jung home worlds and fighting those battles. I would think Captain Scott to play less and less a role in the success of the battles and follow up books. There are others that can offer up better battle plans and have more experience

    "Disappointing"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have enjoyed the series but this book was just dull and unnecessarily loaded with a multitude of POVs. For example, did we really need the POV of a reporter going around interviewing people? The story was just so disjointed and scattered that it ultimately felt like nothing really happened. The whole book could have been told in one or two chapters.

    "I need more!"

    I have enjoyed the entire series but although I enjoyed the book I find it left me hanging in kind of a odd place. I do however highly recommend this book and the entire series to all scifi fans.

    I enjoy longer books with multiple sequels that creates consistent worlds throughout the series
