Decent Modern Military Sci Fi

Aurora CV-01 is a decent modern sci fi with enough characterization and action to keep one eagerly listening. Although the main character might be a bit much of a cliché (the unique snowflake, glib male version), I still enjoyed the story.

Ethan is the son of a senator and wants as far away from his famous father as possible. He enlists in the fleet - yet despite lackluster scores, manages to be assigned to the fleet's flagship. But he must compete with a very by the book colleague who wants the top position. And a side cast of characters will also have to deal with their own challenges being raw recruits suddenly thrust into an unforgiving situation with an alien threat.

This felt very captain Kirk and the Kobayashi Maru - the man whose instincts and daring are far more important than by-the-book learning and so can compensate for any situation. Of course, this is a very male-driven book - all the women are 'hotties' and antagonize or sleep with the male characters providing titlation. It was very nun or whore - and as a female myself, it would have been nice to see the women as people and not objects to bag or be annoyed by.

In the end, I did enjoy this first book in the series and felt the Audible narrator did a decent job.

Would you try another book from Ryk Brown and/or Jeffrey Kafer?

Yes, I am especially disappointed in these book companies or worse authors find it necessary to split one book into two and charge you as if it were four.
Narrator is good.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Move it along a little quicker.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?


Could you see Aurora: CV-01 being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?


Any additional comments?

This is a decent storyline and what. However wher is the prequel beginning of the story.
What caused the world collapse, when did the plague hit. Wheren and where did theJund come from?
How did the data disks get stored and found. Any book shorter than 6 hours is a $7 book.
