Unable to finish this (minor *spoiler*)

My biggest problem with this is possibly the genre. I love science fiction. I don't mind a bit of war. I do like some real story. However this feels like an endless advert for the US Marine Corps - devoid of real feeling and story, full of gungho action types who spend all their time being soldiers and not much time doing anything else. Having listened to titles which really paint alternative cultures in interesting ways - this doesn't. And *spoiler* the crew's reaction to meeting aliens (lots of them) seems like vague interest and rampant paranoia rather than fascinated intrigue (in one case, with some justification).



I listened to about 30% of the whole thing, and I really tried to stick it. But for me (and I'm at odds with some others who possibly knew better than I what they were expecting) I had a "life is too short" moment, and decided to move onto something I would find more rewarding.

Good Read

Good choice of narrator. Fantastic futuristic descriptions of technologies that are theoretically possible. Exploratory and militaristic. Unfortunately for me the, the dialogue can be very 'boys toys.'
