THE COLLOSSUS WAS VIRTUALLY SURROUNDED BY LEVIATHANS
I liked the book, it entertained me, which is what I ask for above all else. It takes place in space on spaceships. No planet of the week, time travel, romance, or scientific jargon. No detailed taking apart and putting back together of weapons. The story was predictable, matter of fact I kept thinking I had heard it before, but I had not. It was a lot like a 1950's war movie, with the cheese so thick you could cut it with a knife, but sometimes that is what I want. I don't want a steady diet of it, but it was a nice upbeat patriotic read.
I AM JUST A MAN
I must agree with another reviewer that Admiral Compton, the main character was a bit ego maniacal. Yet, he was an admiral and he was trying to save Earth. Democracy rarely works in these types of situations. While Admiral Compton was similar to a Captain Picard, it was a shame that the bad guys had to be Chinese and Russian. Roddenberry would have found better bad guys.
The narrator was good.

Narration is perfect. Jay Snyder is always good.
The story is interesting. For me the irritating problem is that the author loves repetition as though he doesn't have faith that the reader GOT it the first time around. Sometimes that repetition would go on and on until I felt like fast forwarding so I could hear more of the story and less repetition of what had already been said. If someone reduced the repetition, the book would be shorter but more enjoyable.
