Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
There are I think, for science fiction fans, certain things about physics one can lie about, and some things one just can't. The writer in this one crossed the line. Sure, get fancy with quantum physics, but standard old Einsteinian and Newtonian physics, nope, sorry you just can't make things up. For instance , a fist sized object moving at 90% light speed hitting an ocean is not going to cause very much problem for a world. It certainly is not going wipe most of a population out. Just in case your wondering, that' about 10Mt worth of bang. So why am I making a point of this.... when I hear something completely wrong technically, I loose my suspension of disbelief, and can't stay in the story. And THAT is what a writer is supposed to be doing. painting a rich tapestry that I can get embroiled in and care about. Nearly every battle in this book got derailed because of some glaring technical inaccuracy.
I still can recommend the book because the over all pot is good, but the technical storytelling in this one is awful!
Would you be willing to try another book from Steve White and Charles E. Gannon ? Why or why not?
I will be listening to the next book if for not other reason that this one was a cliff hanger ending, and I want to know what happens.
Which character – as performed by Marc Vietor – was your favorite?
Marc does an excellent job narrating the characters in the book. He gets a lot of exercise with this one as there are a LOT of characters in this one!
Could you see Imperative being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
I can't see making this book in the series in to a movie or even a TV show, unless it was going to be some schlock done by the SciFi channel. Too much technically wrong.
Any additional comments?
I hope some one can get back to the Author on this one about the tech details going too far astray. The rest of the series has been great! And I highly recommend books 1-6.
