Publisher's Summary

The United States of America reigns over Earth as the last surviving superpower. To build a society free of American influence, foreign countries have inhabited the moon, taking advantage of the natural resources to earn their own riches. Now, the U.S. military has been ordered to wrest control of Earth's satellite from their rivals. Sergeant Ethan Stark must train his squadron to fight in an airless atmosphere at one-sixth normal gravity against a desperate enemy. Ensuring his team's survival means choosing between which orders to obey - and which to ignore.

BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction written and read by author Jack Campbell.

Stark's War was originally published as "by John G. Hemry".

    "Jack Campbell delivers again"

    I love this author, and have read all but 3 of his books and he had yet to disappoint.
    The story is a forewarning of what our society can become if certain trends continue. Having served myself I don't believe that it could ever get this bad, but the author does an amazing job of painting the picture.
    The narrator helps bring this story to life. I enjoyed the voice acting and really appreciated the clear speech.

    Story
    "Noisy narrator"

    Narrator seemed to be dehydrated while narrating. He would make swallow noises at random which sort of ruined the flow of the story. Interesting take on what the future could hold. Highly unlikely though. Will purchase sequels to see where the story goes.

    "Intriguing"

    This story was intriguing and unique it's presentation. It's an idea that almost all in the military has dealt with when dealing with officers or senior enlisted wanting to make the next rank. I found it to be a great story the way how it played out because of how Stark is allowed to develop. I really did find some of the conversation very visual as it went on because I could see people really saying some of the responses. I did find it a little odd that I didn't see any curse since enlisted or just infantry in general likes to curse from what I have seen of them.

    "Some you win - some you lose"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you are fond of war stories set in a space environment, this is a good start. In the introduction delivered by the writer, he gives his reasons for the why the writing style is what it is. So yes I will recommend it with a big caveat - it is not exactly what you expect ...

    "Great story"

    The story is great but the acting was a little buggy.... Can't wait to listen to the next installment.

    Story
    "Other Jack Campbell books are much better"

    I like the Lost Fleet series by Jack Campbell, so I hate to say anything negative, but this book is just... not very good. The characters are 2 dimensional at best. The plot is pretty standard "soldiers go where they are ordered and fight who they are told to fight" books, and the dialog is incredibly repetitive. The characters have the same conversations over and over again about how stupid the officers are, and how civilians don't understand the military, and how stupid the officers are and so on. The combat is not very well written either. The physics of fighting with projectile weapons on the Moon isn't addressed, And the logistics of fighting that far away from the factories on Earth seem to be an afterthought. It is a very early book for Campbell, and it really shows. Listen to anything else by him.

    Story
    "Noisey Author"
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Eric Summerer?

    The author wasn't bad but he kept making swallowing noises the whole time. It was very...off putting.

    Story
    "Rollicking Sci-Fi"
    Where does Stark's War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is difficult to rank Stark's War against the Other Jack Cambell Books I've read, but it is among my favorite.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The quick pace, humor, excellent story telling and plot with believable characters and situations.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    That is a toss up between when when Stark covered the retreat of the Platoon and the confrontation between Sgt. Reynolds and Stark after he "fragged," their captain.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a lot and Jack Campbell, also caused me to think while I was laughing about the possibility of this becoming reality and not fiction.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was excellent with a variety of voices that stayed consistent. hHe brought the story to life with good delivery and timing.
