Would you consider the audio edition of Forced Ascent to be better than the print version?
I only have time for audio, truck driver with 8 hours aday driving. Love audio books and this series is great
What other book might you compare Forced Ascent to and why?
Love the whole series, this one is sort of stand alone with the many different characters and each has a role to play.
Which scene was your favorite?
Well the part where they save the hostages, and hand out some revenge
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
not sure this is a good title of the book
Any additional comments?
Look forward to reading all the rest and hope that Mr Conroe will keep writing them. Look forward the next ones

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
no not alone, the ending is just to bad and removes the main drag of the serie...
Would you be willing to try another book from John Conroe? Why or why not?
yes, because all the other books in the serie was awesome up to this point
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
if it was part of the rest of the serie properly... depend how the next book is, if it follows the bad of this book instead of bringing the good back i wouldnt.
Any additional comments?
I’ve loved the series all up to the end of this book… which just seems too stupid to believe -.-
They basically destroy the majority of what we have learned about the main character, destroying all the abilities we seen him gain, removing all the skills, intelligence and even the reactionary pattern of him doesn’t make sense to the rest of the books and up to this point.
It truly just destroys the Charm and awesome feeling of the main char being Super overpowered and send him back to being nothing more than a basic supernatural power… it is really damn sad……
Not sure why the author decided to suddenly go the direct opposite routed of the rest of the books….
Anyway the rest of the serie before this was awesome, this book was good besides the personality changes of his “bad side”, and the ending “makeup” with the usa. Which was both just stupid and silly
SPOILER!!!!!!!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!!
I mean seriously, knocked out by gas?? His immune to sicknesses, he can only be poisoned by uranium, he can heal half his head in mili-seconds (but apparently the healing ignores the effect of gas ehem -.-) and even uranium have minor effect on him, and the speed gas would flow in would be snail slow compared to the speed of the main char….
Also his bad side refusing to kill now when there is direct danger, even though we know from earlier books it learned that holding back will get it killed -.- so makes no sense….
Seriously it’s the “be weak and useless because I need it for the plot” setup which was just beyond stupid :(

I started really liking the series, until.
2.that all the plots are the same, uncle sam calls, they come running to help like a good little American, then get shat on by the government.
that's it. it becomes so anoying, they do good, fighting evil. but come running back to the most evil thing of all the American government.
stupid, unrealistic and really really annoying.
the narration was excellent.
should have been an excellent series but the blind faith and attitude of the us gov makes it ridiculous and annoying.
Would you listen to Forced Ascent again? Why?
Yes because the book was filled with humour, excitement and very insightful
Who was your favorite character and why?
What does James Patrick Cronin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Just listening meant I could close my eyes imagine the characters. It is so well written that this is made easy and enjoyable.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes I felt the sadness and the joy.
