I SUSPECTED SHE WAS CONFLICTED
Just before two hours I almost gave up, than they started talking about going back into space. While in space, things happen and the book is very entertaining. Larson will never win a writing award and I found very little I could quote, but he is fun. I enjoyed listening and wanted to get back to the story anytime I was away from it.
YOU DANCE VERY WELL
The first two hours is very soap opera and not good soap opera (if there is such a thing). The main character cries a lot about being a royal and people not giving him credit for his own accomplishments. As someone who has suffered under nepotism, I found it hard to empathize. Get through the first two hours and then you will be happy. The book as a whole is about 20% soap, 30% space battles, 30% science and 20% clones, skylifts, aliens, spies, assassinations, deaths that don't stick, love story and corn. By the way if someone is pronounced dead, don't believe it. Something is always happening, after the soap, their are no boring parts.
Edoardo is very very good. Sometimes he reminded me of Michael Kramer.

From the master of military Sci-Fi, the creator of “Star Force,” and the “Undying Mercenaries,” B.V. Larson has developed a new trilogy that is somewhat different from his previous work called, “Lost Colonies.”
In this first book, “Battle Cruiser” we meet Captain William Sparhawk; an antihero type that seems to be lacking conventional hero qualities but it is through these flawed and questionable personality traits that some dark humor of this story shines. He is a complex and polarizing character that some listeners’ may not like or understand but I think most will as he eventually develops into the hero that is needed for this story to progress.
The narrator, Edoardo Ballerini, captures the essence of Captain Sparhawk perfectly and I can’t wait for the next book.

The author delivers amazing story as expected. The narrator is also good but i prefer when it`s done by Mark Boyett.

Not quite the suspense and punch of other books by the author but a good read none the less.
