The Lost Fleet: Dauntless audiobook cover art

Frustrating series.

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 10-18-10

The overall series is ok but the author repeats himself constantly. Did I mention that he repeats himself. Each and EVERY book he retells the entire story from the beginning. That means that the first book is good and each one afterwords gets more frustrating. If he had cut out the repetitive parts the series would be much better and more cohesive.

The other thing about the series that I don't like is the way that the author wrote the 2 main female characters. They are uninspiring and many times I wanted to smack the author for the things that they said to the main character. I was at first glad to hear that the author had a female character in a strong role. But the bickering and in-fighting between the leads was horrible.

The reader is a good one.

bad reader

The Reader of this copy of the story is horrible. He is so choppy and horrible that I couldn't finish listening to the story. Do a search for the name of the book and try the other narrator as he can only be better. This narrator is choppy and reminds me of a grade schooler trying to read a story. his voices are aweful other than John Carters voice. choppy and horrible.

The story on the other hand is a classic and wonderful story. well worth it too bad the narrator ruined it.

I just finished this book and thought that it was wonderful. The interplay between the characters was unique and yet classic. The adventures that they got into was great and the tension between them lasted to the end.

Not great

I really enjoyed Grave Secrets and Deja Dead. This one is not up the the previous standards. I was constantly confused and the ending I felt was anti-climactic. I felt that much of the storyline was contrived and boring. I hope the future books of hers are better.
