pity

again the charter s were good you were drawn into the tale and it kept you interested to the end.
The problem was that unlike the first book this was a little bit predictable, why one character had been brought into the story and why another had been readied which was a pity and spoiled it a little for me.

Empire strikes back quality sequel

This is a great book by it self but even better as part of the series. It shows you a lot of the issues our government can actually be heading towards.

An interesting military Sci Fi

This is book 2 in the series and you need to have read book 1 to understand what is going on in this book. Looks like a series you MUST Read in order. Sgt Stark is now in the leader of the military on the moon after the mutiny. In this book he must bring control and motivation to the military and improve the relationship with the civilians in the moon colony. It is interesting to watch how Stark gains leadership of large groups and understands the politic in the negotiation with all the parties on earth, i.e. the corporation, the military and the government. There is military action both army and naval as well as suspense and a hunt for a spy. Great book in the tradition of the Lost Fleet. Eric Michael Summerer does a good job with the narration.

Starks Best Yet

If you could sum up Stark's Command in three words, what would they be?

Fan Smegging Tastic. Just like Jack Campbell's other work, Starks Command doesn't fail to disappoint. The intriguing story line and colourful cast of characters helps brings Starks universe to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

By a far margin, Stark is by far the best character. His ability to command his troops while keeping a cool head on the moon.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favourite scene is when Stark and his army are attacked by infiltrators.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There are a few parts of this book that made me laugh out loud.

picked up 4 different times to get through.

this one is really slow going, didnt start picking up towards the end. didnt even want to finish this one but forced my way through. not even sure if the next book is worth picking up. Gone through Jack Campells other books and loved them so this one is a let down.

Shallow characters make it hard to buy into the story. Repeatedly highlights characters weakness without seemingly to learn.

Excellent follow up. Great Civics lesson

if you don't value your freedom after this book, you are hopeless. This book really demonstrates the path we are inching down, where the military is a separate elite vs the civilians. Reminds me to vote for my freedom, not for my freebies.

Great story, Characters & Narrator

This is one of my favorite "go to" series when Im out of a new book. Jack Campbell is an awesome storyteller. Im on listen number 6 of this series over the last 2 yrs since I first heard it. Its still as fresh, interesting & engaging today as it was first time thru. Maybe even more so. Great narrator also. I have listened to all the series written by this author. I think they r all very good.
