Summary

Rade Galaal enrolls in the hardest military training known to man to become a member of the MOTHs, the most elite fighting unit in the galaxy. MOTHs are tacticians, corpsmen, snipers, astronauts, and commandos rolled into one. They also happen to pilot the atomic-powered ATLAS mechs, specialized military hardware that brings new meaning to the phrase "one-man-army".

When Special Warfare Command orders MOTH Team Seven on a covert operation beyond the furthest reaches of explored space, Rade realizes he's signed up for more than he bargained for.

Promising!

This Author shows a lot of promise! I expect his work will get much better as he goes along, but already the basic ideas he presents will hold your attention.

The Narrator got on my nerves to begin with, but as I listened and learned his "Style", I actually kinda enjoyed his voice... It's very low and sometimes "Gravely", but during the action scenes it really brings out the "Grit" in the Situation, especially while officers and troops are barking orders, or fighting... Give him a chance and you will probably soon get used to his style...

Since I like the "Mech Armor" genre, I came VERY close to giving the book four Stars, but I decided to go with three stars and mention in the review that I considered it more of a "High Three Stars Book"... Again, I expect the Author will improve as he gets more books under his belt... I'll be watching for more from him.

Defiantly a freshman book but do it any way!

Any additional comments?

This book seems to be a first for the author. not as smooth as i would like, good action, good characters. character have a good sense of right and wrong and sacrifice. a good little love story in there. just what you think a person might be in a future service.

One of My Facorote Military Sci-Fi Stories Ever.

I originally read ATLAS as a kindle book, and I really looked forward to it in audio form, and I was not disappointed. The narrator has his own unique style, which once I got used to it after 10 minutes or so, I really enjoyed. Isaac Hooke has written a novel that is, in my opinion, in the same league as Starship Troopers, The Forever War and Terms of Enlistment. Deep world building and excellent characterization are part of it, but for me, the sheer feeling of "I could see this really happening in the future", which I feel is an important part of any military sci-fi, is plainly apparent. The characters are sympathetic, with motivations that make sense, and the tech is excellent and realistic. I can't wait for ATLAS 2 in December. This author is one to watch!

All around great

This whole book is great. As Rade and his friends go thru their training you feel like your there. There's action thru all that and on to their missions. It keeps you listening and wanting to hear more. The only character that gave me problems was Shaw..I just could not like her...
The narrator created the voices that so matched all the characters perfectly. Mr. Price has become one of my favorite narrators.
This audio was given to me free at my request & I made this review voluntarily.

gripping sci-fi

Anyone who has been through boot can relate to this. I found this looking for a great way to keep my Titan fall excitement up, and this went beyond my expectations. Now I will be reading the series.

great Sci fi

it holds you to the seat not wanting to put it down. I'm glad I read it on a weekend with nothing to do or else I would have been angry pausing it every time. If you like military Science fiction this book is definitely for you has tons of action and the narrator does a great job. he hold the suspense where needed and speeds up during action. he puts you into the book like it's your story, you are rage. that is why I like this book the author and the narrator did an amazing job.

Great Syfy book

Would you consider the audio edition of Atlas to be better than the print version?

Just as good. The audio made the book come alive for me.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Atlas?

When Rade was unable to save his friend his mentor, Alejandro and at the funeral for all of his fallen brothers "MOTH"

Have you listened to any of Rhett Samuel Price’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No this was the first time. I like his style I will look for other books that he is Narrating Oh

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when he realized that Shaw was the one that was leaving and the one-way mission she was on.

Any additional comments?

Atlas was an exciting Book. Syfy at it's best.

Decent story, grating voice

The story is what it is; a nice pulp scifi. entertaining.
The levels on the voice of the narrator made me want to delete this off my phone. The voice the actor gave the main character is gravely; that in itself wouldn't be an issue, but I had issues with the bass making it very difficult to distinguish what was being said when he used that voice, and only that voice. I've tested it on 2 speakers; my Bluetooth headset and on my computers sound system, and they both give similar results. It gets better as the book plays, but the first hour or two was very frustrating.

Great story. Reminds me of Starship Troopers!

Similar in theme to Starship Troopers but it has enough differences and originality to keep it fresh. Looking forward to the next book!
