One of my favorite all time military sci-fi

What did you love best about In Death Ground?

Detailed Battles, but not to the extent where it become repetitive. A use of past tense to cover some battles is refreshing.

Which character – as performed by Marc Vietor – was your favorite?

He has some excellent voices for many of the characters.

Boring space opera

Any additional comments?

Weber usually spins a decent yarn, yet in this book he falls through. The story is not horrible, but quite boring. In book one of the series, the opposition is well fleshed out and the story becomes interesting as a result. In this book, the opposition is just a mindless and very undetailed monster entity, making the story equally dreary. Stay clear.

Could benefit from abridgement

Much of the book has to do with minor points and characters that are irrelevant or die. The quantities and sizes of the fleets exceed anything that any realistic economy could support - hundreds of this and thousands of that. The story would be more credible if all the numbers were decreased by a factor of twenty. As it is, you become numbed to the loss of a single vessel or group of warriors.

Pretty good!

Narrator gives an excellent performance for this entertaining story with lots of characters (perhaps a few too many too many). Lots of action!

Where did they get all those fighter pilots

Would you try another book from David Weber and Steve White and/or Marc Vietor?

I will probably, eventually, buy the next book in the series, just for completeness. However,it seemed a little melodramatic. Also, I can't get over how many fighter pilots died in explosions of plasma vapor. How could they get so many trained pilots and have them die without running out! Given that, in the story, technological advances occurred, couldn't they make some sort of AI that could fly them?

Have you listened to any of Marc Vietor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I loved the way Marc voiced the 'Tabbys'.

Great Book

If you could sum up In Death Ground in three words, what would they be?

The narration was great and it was a well developed story. I plan on getting all the books in the series.

Very one dimentional people

I like this book for the exciting battels and surprises but comparet to other books by David Weber the people are very one dimentional in this story. Politicians are always and compleatly bad. Military people are always good and never makes mistakes unless they are missing information, and they are ALWAYS compleatly selfsacrificing. (I'm not exaggerating here)

If you can ignore this and just want some good space battels it is still a good book.
