I rate this book 4.25 on a scale of 1-5.
Just to help put this book, and other similar types, into perspective here is a list of some of my favorite SiFi books (I tend to like action/adventure/drama with great characters and creative story lines):
Dune (my personal all time favorite space opera) - Frank Herbert (5.0)
Hyperion (the Book of Cantos series is awesome and ends with a bang) - Dan Simons (4.5)
Heroes Die - Matthew Stover (more Fantasy than SiFi but an awesome edge of your seat read) (4.5)
Star Force Series (all 10 books are fun reads) - B.V. Larson (4.25 on average)
Old Mans War - John Scalizi (4.25)
Forever War - Joe Haldeman (4.25)
Forging Zero (a brutal and nerve racking read, but fun) - Sara King (4.25)
Enders Game (fun story, but IMO not as good as many rate it) - Orson Scott Card (4.0 - 4.25)
Thanks for reading :)
I found each book's action to be very repetitive and the characters shallow and naive. It is not a bad story for a new indie author, it is just not one of the best set of books I have read. I expected solid military Sci-Fi and the behavior of the immature crew members and the way people mouthed back to the captain of the ship is insulting. Frankly he should have had them walked to air lock and ejected a couple into space and the crew and civilians would have listened to orders more intently.
The books reminded me more of a YA Sci-Fi series except for a little foul language occasionally. I rated the book at 3 stars. I probably will not continue the series as I didn't find the storyline that good.
I waited months before beginning this series but since starting it just over month ago I've burned through half the series. You should really be prepared to spend $57 on the entire series which currently sits at 15 books. While that may sound a lot to spend do bear in mind you might only get two or three novels from other authors for the same cost. This series is value for money, but more important it's an absolute page turner. Suitable for YA & older readers. Get it.
I am part way through E.2, and I feel that this book is written to be more action-film style than plausible and scientific. There are many times when I feel like the obvious answer is, well... obvious! I find holes in the storyline and find myself skimming the surface of this universe. I'm not pulled inside because of the recurring reminders (plot and scientific holes, etc.) that I'm only reading a book. I expect a storyline that flows in a sense that is plausibly realistic, solid, and not "Hollywood" polished.
I don't feel like this book is quite to the point that I would buy the next set. But we'll see howthe final episode goes. I hope for growth in the story as result from growth of the author.
