Publisher's Summary

Perry Stone hasn't gotten over his fear of being outside and he still hasn't settled into life in the Empire's Navy. After months of legal wrangling over his last assignment, he has been given a new assignment. He was looking forward to getting a new posting on a spaceship or a station. The problem is that his new job is on a planet. Worse, once there, the base is overrun by the enemy aliens and now Stone is trapped outside on a hostile planet, injured, and hunted by aliens bent of killing him.

DEHYDRATED MARINE

HE WAS A GUY, AFTER ALL
I am going to have to admit that I thought I was getting book one in this sale. This is actually book 2, which is obvious when you start listening. I never could get into this. I felt that most of the jokes fell flat, their was too much detail and it was a bit sophomoric even for me. The narrator was so monotone, that all I heard was blah blah blah, nice butt, blah blah blah, I am seventeen, blah blah blah, why are her nipples hard? There are long periods, in which the conversation is very boring, numbering shuttles, deciding who rides in them and several logistic items, I don't care about. My mind would wonder and than I would realize that aliens are attacking and I would wonder how long have they been attacking and than I would think, I really don't care. After one attack the marines are picking up body parts of fellow marines and making jokes about it. It was in really bad taste, I thought.

Aweful Juvenile Trite Drivel

Yep, I HATED this book. I suffered through the first one - even though the Audible reviews said it truly BAD! But, Amazon reviews gave it pretty much 5 stars; so, I thought - maybe I'm missing something?! Nope, as painful as the first books was; this is even worse!

Also, the narration (which sometimes can save a mediocre book) was truly BAD. The narration was stilted and unnatural. To be fair though; it could have been the horrid writing which inspited the narrator to voice the protagonist as the oafish ignorant child that he was and every other character as embodiment of douchebaggery...

Well, anyway, a complete waste of money/credit - will return.
