Inhaltsangabe

Colonel Joe Bishop made a promise, and he's going to keep it: taking the captured alien starship Flying Dutchman back out. He doesn't agree when the UN decides to send almost 70 elite Special Operations troops, hotshot pilots, and scientists with him; the mission is a fool's errand he doesn't expect to ever return from. At least this time, the Earth is safe, right?

Not so much.

Repetitive and annoying

Würden Sie es noch mit einem anderen Hörbuch von Craig Alanson und/oder R.C. Bray versuchen?

I liked Book 1. There were some small things about it that didn't quite sit right, but overall the author wrote a compelling story that made me want to see how it progresses.

This book is horrible. Let me tell you why:
1) The Author repeats some things over and over to the point of being annoying. It doesn't help progress the story, it feels like "filler". Things like "stupid" monkeys, The AI being upset that Humans could think up their own good plans, the explanation of the "jump-tech" and what would happen if not used correctly, "we can't leave any trace out here", "I have to be a Colonel now, but I'm still only a grunt", The special forces are so much better than I am, ..., and so on.

2) The story is just a long, drawn-out description of how Spec-Ops teams plan and execute their actions. That's it.

3) Any time elements were introduced to the story that gave it a bit more "mystery" - these elements were then abandoned for hours on end to make room for more of the redundancies mentioned under 1) and the "un-story"-like elements from 2)

4) The thing with the AI was just too much. We get it. We got it in Book 1. It was supposed to be some sort of comic relief, and a Deus Ex Machina device - but this all got used SO MUCH that it made me start skipping long stretches just to not have to hear it again.

5) Almost every "heart-pounding" moment where we were supposed to feel like "what's going to happen now", was ruined by the fact that we knew EXACTLY what was going to happen. Everything was 100% predictable. And some times to a point where I said to myself "please don't use this cliche, please don't go down that cheesy route, please don't screw this up with this dumbed-down explanation...". And then the Author did exactly that

This is rubbish.

waste of time

i couldn't put it better than Sudan Martin Jackson did in his comment. how old is the author? like 12 or what? he is repeating his stupid Jokes over and over again. there is no underlying story. just BS - as the book keeps repeating.

Amazing Voice

The book isn't bad, it's light reading. Every important detail is mentioned at least three times.

The great part is really the excellent narration.

Recommended for distracted listening.

Fun !!

Ich fand das Buch war kurzweilig und teilweise sehr unterhaltsam.

Als Ablenkung für zwischendurch sehr gut !!

Spannend! Fesselnd! Und wunderbar geschrieben.

Das Höhrbuch hat mich wirklich bis zur letzten Minute gefesselt. Obwohl ich wusste das es eine Fortsetzung gibt und ea mit dem Hauptcharakter wahrscheinlich weiter geht. Hielt mich die Geschichte auf den Zehenspitzen, immer aufs neue gespannt wie "Colonel Joe" und "Skippy" sich aus der nächsten brenzligen Lage retten können. Dabei liefert der Syncronsprecher eine wunderbare Stimmenkulisse.

gute Fortsetzung der Story, light Entertainment

es macht Spass, den zweiten Teil der Geschichte zu hören, vor allem, weil sie super vorgetragen wird, der Plot selber ist natürlich als sehr "fantasievoll" zu umschreiben, aber, es handelt sich ja auch um Science-fiction, warum also nicht...

Fast-paced military sf...

... that relies mainly on its action-packed plot. No epic space opera, and it doesn't cover any areas that haven't been covered before (and often better), although its humor and frequently self-ironic attitude are quite entertaining at times. Quick and easy read for fans of the genre.
