Another great Reeman story

Would you consider the audio edition of Battlecruiser to be better than the print version?

Yes, I have trouble pronouncing all the British language correctly and I enjoy the read's enthusiasm during battles and action events.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Battlecruiser?

This was another great Reeman book and another great audiobook. I really enjoyed it. All his books follow the same vein: misunderstood Captain (with unruly hair) meets girl with issues, meets commanding officer thats a monster etc. But the good dies all win in the end. A truly fun story.

Which scene was your favorite?

The battle with the KMS Minnden

If you could rename Battlecruiser, what would you call it?

HMS Reliant

Any additional comments?

None.

Not one of his best story plodded a bit.

A plodding story line and a unnecessary love interest marred what could have been a much better story.

Douglas Reeman at his best!

Douglas Reeman is a master at bringing to life the Royal Navy at war, he draws the listener or reader into the triumphs and tragedy of the war at sea!

His characters are believable and you really get a sense of the life and times they are living through.

I would be remiss if I also didn't mention his ability to bring the ships to life, they are as much a character in the story as the people who serve in them!

The listener may recognise aspects of the story that mirror that of the famous Royal Navy Battleship HMS Warspite , her story has been told in numerous books but I'd recommend the one simply titled WARSPITE!

If you like a good sea story with full, believable characters, you'll enjoy this book!

A well done story and reading. The author does a good job of his research
