I enjoyed the first and second in this series, as I said before it follows some similarities to his other works but it's worth listening to!

I've listen to the first 3 books of the series. I'll summarize them in one review:
All 3 books have a great narrator!
Book 1 starts with a nice story, but the story develops quite slowly. The overall story is not bad, but it lacks lots of information. As if it goes too slow.. Other than that - the author does a short enough descriptions of people, ships, etc, so you won't be bothered with useless information.
Book 2 is kicking asses! Story goes much faster, lots of more information, very interesting!
Book 3 story is very rich - even more interesting than book 2.
In short - very nice series. Recommended!
It felt a bit like making up for time not spent developing the story and characters in the first book so in comparison it's much slower. The huge spans of time and slightly unbelievable scale on which everything is happening is also much more apparent in this book than the last but I'm glad I spent I credit and the time to listen to it.
The fist book in the series held great promise and the struggle against the AI was tangible. In this second book, everything is over in a flash. After a long build up the final AI battle is feeble and ultimately unfulfilling, lazy even.
Let's hope the third book isn't as rushed.
