Publisher's Summary

Ark Royal - the Royal Navy’s outdated space carrier - has won a smashing victory against the enigmatic aliens, capturing one of their starships and returning to Earth. Now, Admiral Theodore Smith and his crew are assigned to command a fleet charged with making a deep-penetration raid into alien territory, a fleet made up of carriers from four different nations. But with a crewman who isn't what he seems, untested pilots and international friction - and a new and dangerous alien plan - can Ted and his crew survive their mission...or will they die, alone and unremarked, hundreds of light years from home?

Grew on me over time

Books 1 & 2: At first I found it difficult listening to this type of story in a British accent (I grew up on American movies!!).
The Audio directing was a bit off. I could tell each time the reader took a break. The volume was reduced on the last words (like a fade-out).
But, by the tme book 2 ended - I was hooked. At least I only have to wait 1 month for book 3.
Get past the "non-stereo typical" British Accent and all the characters come to life and a are pleasure to experience.

Couldn't put it down

Would you consider the audio edition of The Nelson Touch to be better than the print version?

For me, yes. Kindle is abridged so shorter and the Audible version is not. Therefore you get the full work and it is a good story

What did you like best about this story?

The very end, but I won't spoil it for the readers

What does Ralph Lister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He is a good reader and once you get used to him he is very good

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, emotional right at the very end

Any additional comments?

It is a good book, and I don't want to spoil it for anyone but if this is your think then better than Asimov.
