I was looking forward to this one...what a shame

I like stories about AIs and robots so I was anxious to read this. What a disapointment. First The AI of this ship speaks in such gutter lanquage all of the time, replicates himself to make a whole bridge crew with personalities of 12 year old street kids throughinf f-bombs, plenty of gutter humor and stupid bathroom insults, no cleverness, no real humor or smart interaction with humans. What a waste. I couldnt get though it andam returning this idiocy.

AI inside a Superdreadnought, what could go wrong?

This series is both a stand alone and part of a series. If you haven't read The Kurtherian Gambit Series, I enjoyed it, but it's not required, to understand and enjoy this story. I can't recommend the author or the narrator highly enough. This was a fun, fast paced ride across the universe. I will a warning, if you don't like gratuitous, funny swearing, this books not for you. But if you like fast paced action, good versus evil, Listen to this.

Unfulfilled expectations

Outstanding performance that could not elevate what I consider to be a mediocre story that's potential fell way short of my expectations in sci-fi. Could not take the story seriously

Fun

This one caught me right from the beginning. I enjoyed it so much that I couldn't wait to grab #2 & #3 soon as it finished.

LOVED IT!

You know when you will be buying the whole series as you listen to book 1? This is one of those books. The authors did an amazing job of successfully integrating humor into this sci-fi book and the narrator....hil-ar-i-ous-ly perfect.... I have already bought book 2 and I am eager to listen to the rest of this captivating series. Thanks for the humor and laughs. After a year of a global pandemic, we can all use the excuse to just enjoy something funny.

Just awful

I kept waiting for this to get better. The concept was intriguing but the story was just weak and full of holes. Phil Thron does his best with what he's got and he's got a bad story to work with here.

Just... pass.

Humorous Sci fi

Really enjoyed this book. Ordered book 2 before I was half way through and thrilled to see there were even more. Reynolds et al were laugh a minute characters and Phil Thron is, as usual, utterly brilliant, he being the reason I opted to listen to this book in the first place. Well worth a listen.

A hidden gem

This book looked interesting but at first listen I was thinking of returning it as the thought of listening to an AI with multiple personalities did not sit well with me. I gave it a second listen and to my surprise the human characters completely changed my thoughts on this book so much that I have pre ordered book 2. So do not be put off this is developing into a great story line and I greatly look forward to all the following books

Kinda good entertainment

But reminds me most of all on the good old teen movies i used to watch back in the 80'.
Now I'm in my mid fifties and the book are clearly aimed to a much younger public.
Anyway I found the entertainment value basic, not at all intellectually challenging but not that bad or boring that I abandoned the story.
If you, as I, just want some light listening to fall asleep to, it's recommendable but if you're looking for something deeper, scientific and socially/politically interesting, don't take this path. The story merely scratches these points.
There's a lot of sarcasm and humor in the story, not the kind that makes you laugh out loud, just a lot of invert hahas.
Still I'm going to listen to the next book in the line. 👍🏻

Unlikeable characters

I wanted to like this book; it seemed to be the type of book I have read for years and enjoyed.
It wasn't.

The characters are all unlikeable and humourless and I found myself disengaged from them and not really caring what happened to them.
The "wise-cracking" was about as engaging as that which came from the donkey in Shrek.

Not going to finish this one; what would be the point

Loved this book

Had read a few reviews saying it was hard to get in to at first, I didn’t find this the case. The story has a good pace interjected with sci fi movie quotes that sci fi geeks like myself will appreciate.
Only criticism is that I was not happy when it ended I was hoping it would go on indefinitely.

A Slow burner which explodes!

I'll be the first to admit I struggled and wondered what I had done when I started listening to the book. However, it soon picks up and the early chapters are needed once the story explodes in spectacular fashion.

If you get this book please stick with it through the early chapters. It's worth it! Can't wait for the 2nd book to reach the top of my listening list.

Like AI stories its ok, but its highly simplistic

These series is an average listen and keeps you wanting more of the ongoing story of an AI and a battleship. It is very simplistic in its outlook however, celebrating death and destruction which does get unsettling as time goes on. The the cartoon characters that accompany the AI rejoyce a little too much in their killing too. the ship battles are ok however, but the middle 3 book do repeat a storyline.

Really entertaining space romp

It's great to have another funny and engaging story read to me by Phil Thron. Superdreadnought is the start of a series that I have a lot of hope for - original, comical and full of action. I love the political plots and character development. My only comment is that some of the crew relationships feel rushed and they are too quick to bond, but that didn't stop my enjoyment of the book overall. Can't wait for more.
