    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.

    Wie hat Ihnen R.C. Bray als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

    The speaker is fantastic.

    Welche Emotionen hat dieses Hörbuch bei Ihnen ausgelöst? Ärger, Betroffenheit, Enttäuschung?

    Highly dissapointed

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Save your money.

    15 Stunden voller “mindblowing Awesomeness”! :D

    Ich weiß gar nicht, was spannender war…dieses oder das erste Buch. Auf jeden Fall eine mehr als würdige Fortsetzung. Schon jetzt meine Lieblingshörbuchserie!

    Fun !!

    Ich fand das Buch war kurzweilig und teilweise sehr unterhaltsam.

    Als Ablenkung für zwischendurch sehr gut !!

    Hat seine Längen aber trotzdem gut!

    Im Vergleich zum Vorgänger hat es Längen. Trotzdem sind die üblichen lustigen Stellen und ein Paar Überaschungen dabei!

    witzig aber etwas repetitiv

    die Geschichte ist humorvoll und interessant. Allerdings gibt es einige Elemente / Interaktionen die sich mehrfach wiederholen. Ist vielleicht als running Gag zu verstehen, stört aber nicht weiter.

    So you liked book 1 of the UNEF?

    I'm on book 5, (I think) and been thoroughly enjoying this series. I am not going to write a review for each book. That would be criminal. Instead I will say: If you liked Columbus Day, you will like this, you will like (at least) all the books up to where I am. The quality does not let up.

    Edit: Just finished 7,5. Up to and including 7 is good. The later books losing some of the shine.
    7,5 is horrible AF, but feel free to look up my review of it once you get to that point.

    Same same

    General concept really good - first book great - but second book just repeats the same "monkey-beercan" discussions endlessly. And nothing really happens.

    What a crazy ride

    Alien Invasion auf der Erde, Streit zwischen Alliierten und Unterdrückten, Aufbruch zu fremden Planeten, außerirdische Kulturen und neue Gesellschaftsformen. Humor und deutliche Sprache. Keine Sex Darstellungen, keine technischen Erklärungen, just an exciting ride through the galaxy.
    Darüber hinaus noch der perfekte Sprecher.
    Nachdem ich einige militärische Begriffe nachgeschlagen und die Wiedergabe Geschwindigkeit auf 0.95 gedrosselt habe, konnte ich der Erzählung sehr gut folgen.
    Habe mir bereits alle erschienen Hörbücher von Craig Alanson gekauft.
    Es wäre wunderbar, wenn diese Reihe ins deutsche übersetzt würde, idealerweise mit Matthias Lühn als Sprecher.
    So, participate the journey together with these lizards, hamsters, humans and one nerdy beer can! 🛸🛸🛸

    It's a good night book

    The first book got me good and I was surprised about the elements used there and the story felt light and fun.

    Things which work in book 1 are old and repetitive in book 2. It's just repeating the same thing over and over.

    Even the "impossible" missions repeat. "I will die for you, the mission and humankind" twice!!!!
    All the tension is gone at that point and you just keep rolling eyes.

    At this point nothing bad can really happen since the AI will do some other "magic" and that's it. Humans are just there to be insulted. The "smart" ideas of the monkeys are just there so it doesn't feel like the humans are just useless.

    Over and over the same.
    The colonel is just a hyper patriotic soldier which takes insults like a champ.

    I will try the next book just to see if the series can be saved, otherwise I am done.

    The speaker is great.
