I just never got into the story the characters where bland and the story never went into any direction the story jumped massively and randomly between characters that where complete different and where in basically two different storys (spoilers if u care) one was a sleeze business man that was trying to get into the void aka hevin with his followers but there where aliens that where like no that could end the and the followers where like no we want to go aka die and the other was a jean splicer that trying to get accepted in his story mid evil town. So in short terrible read 1/100 sadly i cant go that low learn how to stick with a proper story

After re reading my summary of this pos book this book is just a shitty syfy retelling of the Bible

The Craing War is now over... the enemy defeated. As planetary systems around the galaxy try to bring normalcy back to their existence, one thing becomes crystal clear... without the Craing around to keep everyone in line, space has become a far more dangerous place. Admiral Reynolds is compelled to introduce a new stellar over-watch program. With his own career winding down, one of his final directives will be in the formation of a special intergalactic marshaling service... Star Watch.

What made the experience of listening to Star Watch the most enjoyable?

I thought the book was good I couldn't stop listening. Only thing is it felt as if I was dropped into the third book. There was a lot of back story that had to be explained. The reason I said star wars is the weapon use and clothing are similar. The star trek reference is because of the caracter interaction, a little campy but real fun. I have been looking for the back story books but haven't found them yet.

A military unit is thrust back into Paleolithic times with only their guns and portable hardware. Ten soldiers on convoy in Afghanistan suddenly find themselves lost in time. Somehow they arrived in Earth's Paleolithic Asia. With no idea how they arrived or how to get back, the shock of the event is severe. They discover groups of the similarly displaced: imperial Romans, Neolithic Europeans, and a small cadre of East Indian peasants.

This is an awesome way too show human interaction in a soundings of total void of technology. Just think while listening how you would cope.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I was riveted throughout the whole book.

What other book might you compare Aurora: CV-01 to and why?

This is a typical "throw the unlikely character into command " book.
