Don't give up on the book because of the monotone
When you first start listening to this book, you will probably want to stop listening in the first half hour because of the monotone narration; don't. If you persevere, you'll realize that the monotone is the natrator's way of expressing the protagonist's mental state at the start of the story. As the protagonist's life gets progressively more interesting, the narration really comes alive.
The story itself is an entertaining, if somewhat formulaic, example of the current style of military sci-fi, with brief bits of prose that hint at what this author may become. I am looking forward to watching this writer polish their chops as time goes on.

Multiple points of interest. Avoids the miopic scope of so many other scifi audios. There is a whole Galaxy of moving parts here, and they are polished and interesting.
Really ballsy, having a fat protagonist. good dialogue with minor funnies.
The real star is the Mech combat. the caspers are cool. The other mech, the bigger ones, are goosebump inducing.
Their interface has a very warhammer 40k sort of interfacing with a God machine type of goosebumpy vibe.
Anyway, it's good, if you are wondering if it is worth your time, it is. I give it an A. (omg that final battle, good stuff.)

Fat kids rejoice, here is a hero for you.
What made the experience of listening to Cartwright's Cavaliers the most enjoyable?
I am a fat guy and the difficulties and how his mind keeps going back to his weight problem and the feelings around it are very well done. Especially the fact that even after he starts working out and trying to lose weight seriously little changes. That is so realistic.
What did you like best about this story?
The modern references like the shout, "Leroy Jenkins!"
Any additional comments?
I really recommend this book if you like any sort of science fiction mech combat books. I grew up reading mechwarrior so Im a bit biased.

Have you ever listened to an audio book in one go. With the richest story line you have ever heard. Well I certainly have not, that is until today. Now im just going to be sitting here waiting for the next one. Wondering how to move on with my life.
