I'm considering listening to the next in the series, but I didn't find it so good that I need to do it right now. I'll wait until I finish my latest audible purchases.
I would not have made any changes. The story line is unique.
This is the only book by this author that I have listened to.
The narrator! I still am not convinced there was not more than one.
A well done sci-fi novel that takes one back to earlier times of the genre. Fast paced and riveting enough to make some very implausible situations forgivable.
The main character constantly embellished himself as a Hero. Good thing he has a super human arm to pat himself on the back.
The story is good, 'fun', Sy-Fi and has lots of potential
If I get board I'll try book two. But book one is not very good.
I am a 40 year old physical therapist. I can remember when I was 12 I thought Stephen King was the only author in the world and I read any of his books...... Now my love for reading has grown...I love to listen and now... To about anything.....
The story did not give you much background on the characters. The story never took off and just the overall idea was just corny!
No real excitement. I expected a lot more .... It is supposed to be sci-fi
I guess but it was just bland
Does not matter
Great book!! Plenty of action and lots of creative concepts to make you smile. I really enjoyed this book.
I've had this book in my queue for a couple of months, I bought during a special deal from audible and didn't know if I'd like. After listening to a few other books this was one of the last books I hadn't listened to so I gave it a try. This book was very fun and I'm glad I gave it a chance. I came to audible today only to add the rest of this series to my wishlist.
Different approach to the "First Contact" genre. A little less detailed than I like with a number of gaps but still a solid story. Obviously written with the idea of at least one sequel. The ending seemed a bit contrived and rushed but I did enjoy the listen. I felt like the story should of continued rather than have another book but we got to make a living. If you like military sci-fi and have an extra credit then go for it.
His reading probably made the book better than it was written
I value the scientific method, have some understanding of the size and age of the universe and I respect the methods and findings of science.
This rates somewheres near the middle. Not bad and not spectacular either.
Nice story. Not to disturbing with great man on machine fight scenes.
Loved the book. It reminded me of Ringo's "Troy Rising" but on a more realistic tract and story line. Excellent book and I just downloaded the next in the series. Great read.
Whitout any pause to ruin the action using the brain, Swarm remember me the old funny action movies from the 80's . Sometimes, when listening other books while going for a stroll, I finally came up thinking about things I should buy for dinner, or something I have to talk with my wife, or something I've forgotten to do at my job (geez!). Well, this doesn't happen while listening Swarm.
Get your popcorn and enjoy.
