Continue growth of good human nature
Hold on, another great movie
If you like hard (okay, maybe just a little squishy) science fiction with a huge dose of drama and solid, if not overly deep, characters, Jack Campbell is an author to keep on your list. I've listened to the whole Lost Fleet and Beyond the Frontier series', and there wasn't a slow or disappointing book in the bunch.
It's all about politics and space combat, and a clash of cultures that could ultimately save humanity.
My only complaint (and it's really petty), is that by naming the books after random ships it's a little hard to keep track of what order they come in. I needed a cheat sheet that I kept on a memo in my Blackberry so I knew in what order to listen.
I said it was petty.
Great narration by Christian Rummel. For space opera and science fiction fans these are a great listen.
Actually i enjoyed each of the books in the Lost Fleet series, but they were clearly just a "paycheck" for Jack Campbell. The characters are interesting with just enough intrigue to keep you listening....but...every book is exactly the same. I understand readers of series like familairity but they are completely alike with one or two small plot chanfges or revaltions to allow Campbell to title a new story.That being said, Campbell does keep you wanting to listen, although you will want to keep a finger on the fast forward button during the endless battle scenes.The stories are not bogged down with science and uncomprehensible physics but if i had to hear one more time about communicating or seeing across light hours of space i would have screamed. this is never more annoying than during his drawn out space battles.I really enjoy Christian Rummel's naration. he has a good range of character voices & accents & does a good job overall.what i really resent is having to listen (at the beginning) to the author bloviate about why or how he has written the books; at leat in print you can see this & skip it.These are good "beach" books & i DID like them over all but i cannot understand anyone describing them as the best or most exciting series going...make me think some of these reviews are set up.
I have listened to all 8 books so far in the series. What can I say but MORE! ALL 8 books are great with out a dull moment in any of the books. My favorate series. Very well written with outstanding Narration!
Inostrancevia - the uber Gorgonopsian.
Yes. And I have just finished my third listen. Just listening to the two lead women characters verbally scratch each other's eyes out with Captain Geary planted squarely in the middle of it all keeps me coming back for more.
Nonstop back biting between the old dame and the captain of the Dauntless. Vintage v. the Feisty Rocket. When will Jack Campbell face the inevitable and give us a threesome? I want a threesome! I know Captain Geary would be up to the challenge.
Solid voice command. Good pace.
Join us as the brave Captain Geary leads his outnumbered but battle tested fleet through the snivelling Syndic worlds while he tries to steer clear of the greatest cat fight this side of the Andromeda Galaxy!
Did I mention the cat fights?
I enjoy SciFi and this is and excellent series if read in order. The story really flows and is just technical enough to make the story creditable.
The Lead Character and the issues around his command responsibilities.
The complete story is what makes the series so enjoyable.
I did have a few laughs in relation to his challenges with the woman in his life.
I am listening to the lost fleet for the third time.It is just such a good story good over evil
The human nature and the brave attitude
I started the whole Lost Fleet series as I traveled across the western half of the U.S. While I wouldn't say it's Dickens, it was a captivating story the kept me awake and interested. I'm trying to broaden my reading habits and science fiction is new to me and I'd have to say I enjoyed the journey.
I have been following this series but getting less and less enjoyment from each book as the series has progressed. They are too self-similar and I think 2 books could have been chopped from the series so far. I was hoping that this book would wrap things up, but it seems there is still more to go. Will I listen to the last one? Probably at some stage, since I have put in so much investment already. But I can see where this book gets it subtitle.
