Extinction is the story of Earth's entry into an interstellar war between living creatures and machines. And to buy the peace, we've signed up with the machines.

The Kyle Rigs Show

Kyle Rigs is special. He's the sort of hero who knows better than everyone, about pretty much everything. If an officer gives an order, he'll countermand it. Sure hell do the same thing later, but he's Riggs. He's so smart that he's not only better than anyone else to run the new tech, he's better than all other people combined. These are the glaring and reoccurring things. Leave aside failing to remember little bits of science like inertia. That's okay, he's The Riggs and not bound by foolish things like planning, military disciple, or a rudimentary appreciation of self replicating factories. Thinking and behavior that could be excused in the surprise and crisis of the first book continue on a larger and more costly scale.

Much less than it could have been

This is the seconds book in the Larson's Star Force series. I liked the direction the first book took, I thought there were some interesting things the series could explore and decided to ignore the problems with the first book and see where the second book went. Well now I know, we went to lazyville. Lawson must have written this book in about a week. The plot is silly, the characters are flat and the science has left the building.

Very sad, this could have been a very interesting series. I think Larson has the ability to write a much better book. But for some reason he just seems to be cranking out these books like cheap romance novels. Maybe that is how a writer needs to pay the bills these days - Volume. I think there are about another 9 books in this series, but I am in no hurry to read the rest.

On the brighter side, Mark Boyett did a great job narrating the book!

Interesting

Good read and well presented. In-depth explanation of why the Tory’s lost the Brexit vote. Outlines the culprits of stupidity that caused the convoluted attempt to get an in vote majority. A must read to anyone interested in the underline causation of Brexit.

good performance, story not as good as first

I truly liked the first book in the series.

sadly, this is not as good.
in particular, I struggle with how the protagonist seem to turn omnipotent. From being a hesitant, likeable Hero in the first book, to suddenly being the only character able to do anything in the book. Computer programming professor suddenly knowing everything there is in the 'art of war', being the 'natural general' (in his own mind). Then being the perfect grunt, leading every attack from the front.
All this, while also programming every script that his creations are to perform. (of course, he is also the perfect weapons designer, astro-fysisist, and chemical engineer)

No-one that un-intelligent, would ever manage to become a professor in computer programming;)

Also, he has turned into quite the prick when it comes to communicating with his peers (or minions?).

The choice to let the main character do every single task, make every single choice, every single education guess and discovery massively ruined the series for me. I feel unable to continue the series from here.

I still recommend the first book, though I think one should skip this one (though I cannot say anything about the quality of the next one)

action packed Sci Fi

fast paced griping and very imaginative Sci Fi points of view. Great to listen to and author that doesn't feel the need to fill his text with blasphemy and foul language
