Would you listen to Vanguard again? Why?
The story line and performance were captivating and entertaining. The action scenes were well described. There were nuances which I am sure to pick up on the second listening.
What other book might you compare Vanguard to and why?
The lost fleet series, also by John G Hemry (Jack Campbell)
Which scene was your favorite?
The first incursion into the Scatha base camp.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No, but could not put it down, especially in the last three chapters.
Any additional comments?
Highly recommend this book. Christian Rummel does an outstanding performance in the narration of this book.

Uninteresting Cory Geary must have done something right to have a descendant like Rob Geary in this series. While never mentioning Black Jack, Rob Geary channels his intrepid spirit perfectly.
It's a bit confusing trying to keep the three groups of people separate, but they all end up working to keep the young planet free from invasion, conquest, or destruction by other humans or aliens, they're not always sure. There's also a long lost ship that just might make an appearance sometime. There are several fine characters to follow into the next volumes: Rob Geary of course, but also Mele, or perhaps "Melee" would suit her better. Lachlan may prove interesting, and the government lady, but two of my choice died, so no more there.
This is about politics and government and freedom without any of Nuttal's leanings and lecturing. There is satisfying action on the ground and in space, a sudden jump of several years, and the promise of more great Campbell saga to come. Worth spending time on.

As a long time Lost Fleet Fan. I was hoping for the best and dreading what the new Fleet might bring.
I'm happy to say that I sat listened to it in almost one sitting and loved it. I'm not going to ruin the story by saying anything about what is in it. Just go and get the book.
Campbell has rebuilt the lost fleet into Genesis with barely a foot out of place. Well done and I look forward to the rest of the books.
I would also note that Christian Rummel did a great job again helping to make a good story into a great one with his reading. Look forward to hearing more from you too.
