    "Nice Listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Homeworld to be better than the print version?

    Same


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

    Yes. Its got a good story the plot is interesting and


    Which character – as performed by Benjamin L. Darcie – was your favorite?

    Mr Darcie does equally well with all the character voices.


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

    I hate spoilers but it was when the Odyessy was apparently destroyed.


    Any additional comments?

    Its a good story with interesting characters. The action is well done and there is enough mystery to the story that it will be interesting to see where it goes since Earth was lost.

    Story
    "Man, the last chapter ruined it for me..."
    What did you like best about Homeworld? What did you like least?

    The story has face-paced adventure, but there are some logical issues that creep up from time to time (e.g., how can people who apparently fled from a galactic empire as a space-traveling species with presumably the ability to use stored history not realize that nearly identical ships to the ones they build are from the same galactic empire they fled? How can critters that typically freeze to death floating in space after devouring planets survive floating in space laying in waiting to attack ships?). Oh well. It is science fiction, and I can suspend disbelief. However, the last chapter just did me in with the introduction of a new character that just killed the tension and seems a little too pat to me. I really liked the book, right up to the last 8 minutes or so.


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

    Sure, although I think one would have to really, really like military science fiction to really enjoy the books.


    What about Benjamin L. Darcie’s performance did you like?

    Darcie did a great job in general.


    Do you think Homeworld needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Well, dang. The book ended on a cliffhanger that leaves the entire focus of the story unresolved. Yes, it needs a follow-up book, but I am concerned that it is will take a turn towards the mystical, as opposed to a science fiction structure.

    Story
    "Great series so far"
    What did you love best about Homeworld?

    So far I have loved the "terran" characters all of them. The author puts just the right touch on their backgrounds and their demeanor to make them real in your imagination. I liked the political touches too as it brings some realism to what would be more realistic to happen not the everyone lets hug and forget the past but we have a common enemy lets fight them together.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The default answer is Captain Westin but I am a fan of Stephano as his character grew on me starting with book 2.


    Which character – as performed by Benjamin L. Darcie – was your favorite?

    They are all good in my opinion.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and I nearly did. I read (listened) through all 3 books in 3 days. I have a very long commute and usually have a book going in my ear while I work.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone have any ideas on how many books are planned for this series?

    My wife says she can read me like an open book. Though she regrets not being able to shut me up the same way. :)

    Book 3 starts off shooting. The quantum pellets not only don't stop but keep building to a climactic end. Great series... waiting for Book 4... and the screenplay. :)

    "Please tell me you're writing book 4!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Homeworld to be better than the print version?

    100%. Have a lot of drive time and not a lot of time to read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Westin


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All the descriptions of the technology


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES.... couldn't put it down!


    Any additional comments?

    Please keep writing and expanding on the series. If you write 20 books I'll buy every one of them.

    Any additional comments?

    I burned through all three books in the series in about two weeks. I love the story. The books themselves keep getting better. Benjamin Darcie is doing a great job narrating. Please don't change your narrator like so many other great sci-fi series have done.
    I wish some of Evan Currie's other books would make it to audible.

    Story
    "enjoyable"
    What did you love best about Homeworld?

    An old enemy returns, no longer an enemy but not necessarily a friend either.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Homeworld?

    I liked how Eric dealt with the old enemy, very much in character.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    For the most part it's very well done, although I found the pronunciation of "bow wake" became a huge irritant. I may be wrong but, the bow of a space vessel (leading edge) should be pronounced, just like the bow of a boat, prow, pram or ocean going vessel (bow and stern). Instead of pronounced like a bow and arrow. As I say it became old fast, then it became a distraction, followed closely by irrigation. The narrator does a great job otherwise.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No it wasn't, there is enough going on, new situations, new tech, enough new to think over, that lent itself well to multiple breaks.


    Any additional comments?

    While "Into the Black" remains my favorite, E.C. keeps the energy and interest high throughout the entire series. It's very well done and very enjoyable.

    "Hard to Put Down"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is one of those books that I couldn't put down. I got really annoyed with the way things were explained over and over, and so many cliches! Regardless, I found myself coming back for more. The story makes me want to know what happens next.

    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? I recently listened to "Augustus" while wandering through the Roman Forum. I'm on my third set of "Sleep-Phones". I've been addicted to audible since 2004... I think my friends are starting to suspect I have a problem ;)

    "Good Listen, but I kept getting confused..."

    This was a good listen, but I kept having to use the "30 Second Reverse Button" on my iPhone to keep up with who was talking, and what was going on... The Narrator seemed to sometimes just say the name of the ship when switching characters without enough of a pause to let you know the people/species talking were about to change... and it seemed like there was a LOT of Character/Race/Species Switching going on that I kept missing.

    What may have confused me more was that I had just finished listening to John Ringo's second book in the "Looking Glass Series", "Vorpal Blade", and the two stories were so similar that I kept getting "What was going on in THIS book" confused with "What had happened in Books 1 & 2 of Ringo's Looking Glass Series"...

    The similarities included throwing out the same Sci-Fi Movie Quotes at every chance (which I don't mind, it's cute sometimes), and the name "Vorpal" was in Currie's Book also, as well as about the same plot of a "Cobbled Together Faster-Than-Light Spaceship", and a lot of other things that kept causing me to sub-consciously think of the Ringo Series, and then realize that the Plot and Characters in THIS book were different... at that point, when I realized I didn't have a clue who was talking or what was going on, I'd have to back WAY up again and concentrate on listening.

    Even though it wasn't a book that I could just listen to "kinda on Autopilot", and it took a LOT of concentration to keep up (Again, some of that may have been MY Fault, since I was in the middle of Ringo's series at the time), once I finished it and "let it settle in my mind", I DID highly enjoy this book in the "Odyssey One" Series. I may go back in a few months and listen to it over again, to make sure I give the story the attention it deserves without constantly thinking about Ringo's books at the same time.
