some stories heard many times get frayed at the edges. Basil adaptation along with his narration smooth those frayed parts and explain the confusing parts.

Basil is a master of the type and voice rendition of any story.
on audible I look for Basil voice before all others.

Clear your schedule! Insurgent-Ice Hammer 2 ROCKS!

Be sure you have a clear schedule on the day you begin listening to ICE HAMMER 2 INSURGENT. Basil continues to build and present such a rich, realistic, not for youngsters world, of life after an invasion. the detail is rich, deep, and broad with his cast of voices so extensive you wonder who is in the booth with him. Now I pine for book 3.

Gilstrap writes a compelling story. A Writer who knows what he is saying, writes without those back to reality " what did he say" sections. a fast enjoyable listen .

Then Basils narration matches the author in depth of knowledge....highly recommend.

Heinlein was a far seen this story is a fresh today as it was when first published. there are some technical developments he did not predict but given it was written 4 years before our first moon landing he did pretty well.

of course people are people and it is about people....enjoy your journey

not safe for listening in the car!! too many giggl

this story is a bit dated with reference to then current events etc but seldom have I read or listened to any story with " airplanes" that actually got it all correct. I am a private pilot and this was an exciting story with spot.on aviation. the author is not a pilot but an aviator!

Basil does it again. a rich exciting story laced with intense reality and a character with a bizarre sense of humor needed to keep his fellow travelers sane. overall a treatise on survival against intense adversarial conditions.

I first heard Basil on one of his earliest podcasts of his stories and have been hooked ever since......his stories are paradoxically spare and deeply rich in detail.

I previously read 65 Below. It is an addictive page turner.
I am one how reads a book a single time. buying the book and spoken version is unthinkable for me. I've done it each time with Basil.

I have been anxiously awaiting the audible version. To hear Basil stories in Basils voice is a treat. I listening to this story in the Las Vegas summer and was afraid I'd get frostbite from the scenery Basil wove around me.

Next ICE HAMMER on Audible soon I hope.
