Description

In 1942, Hitler led the world's most savage military machine. Stalin ruled Russia while America was just beginning to show its strength in World War II. Then, in Harry Turtledove's brilliantly imagined World War saga, an alien assault changed everything. Nuclear destruction engulfed major cities, and the invaders claimed half the planet before an uneasy peace could be achieved.

A spectacular tale of tyranny and freedom, destruction and hope, the Colonization series takes us into the tumultuous 1960s, as the reptilian Race ponders its uneasy future. But now a new, even deadlier war threatens. Though the clamoring tribes of Earth play dangerous games of diplomacy, the ultimate power broker will be the Race itself. For the colonists have one option no human can ignore. With a vast, ancient empire already in place, the Race has the power to annihilate every living being on planet Earth.

Commentaires

“Turtledove demonstrates his talent for crafting drama on a global scale by concentrating on the individual stories that make up the big picture.” ( Library Journal)

good story ruined by subpar performance

see title, narrator has about 4 different types of voices: male and female humans and male and female race members. i much preferred the narrator of the first 3 books. The only positive i can say about the narrator is that you eventually get used to him

great once again but...

the books story was once again amazing but i wish the voice of todd McLaren had read it as he was a better performer than Patrick lawlor that is the only issue with this book is that lawlor did not read or listen to the world war series as he frequently missprounouses names and the general flow of the read.

A continuation of the story except

Once you've reached this part of the Colonization Series, one is used to this narrator. At least he's no longer tacking on the emphatic/interrogative coughs anymore. But the last four minutes of this audiobook have nothing to do with the story. It's just the narrator repeatedly saying to check out some of Tantor's other publications, either online or the troll-free number. So once he gets to repeating that, you're set unless you really want to hear "Audible hopes you enjoyed this program."

Boring as hell

No action, too much meaningless dialogue. Wasted my money. Previous stories were much better than this.

Pretty Interesting Perspective on Alien Invasion

While the jumping around became a bit trying, it was still entertaining.
Some of the dialog was ridiculous, such as humans calling bombs "metal bombs". Who in 1940's called them anything but bombs? I could understand The Race (the aliens) using this dialog since their language may not have an equal word to describe a bomb but for humans to use this sort of terminology was odd. The same for the space travel portions. It made human space travel far more primitive than it should be, particularly since it recognized that America had been to the Moon by the 1960's despite the invasion. It also made The Race's space activities much more primitive than it should be for entities who seized half the Earth from another solar system and completely conquered three planets in other solar systems. They also never explain why The Race was unable to conquer Earth entirely since they invaded while Earth was fighting WW II so we had no nuclear weapons, no space vehicles at all and only primitive rockets developed by Germany and no submarine launched missiles when they invaded.
Yet it is now the late 1960's and this novel has Germany with submarine launched missiles. How could a mostly conquered planet be allowed to develop these sophisticated weapons while under the control of the Aliens? Even America had the "Grey House" in Missouri because The Race nuked Washington DC and most of Eastern America. Guess the Race doesn't like Dems.

So there are a large number of plot holes in this novel if you think about it, but it was still an enjoyable tale where neither the Earth prevails nor is totally wiped out by aliens but reaches a delicate balance with the nations who were fighting WW II still in the same relative positions with Germany being an aggressor nation, Russia wavering back and forth, France split between Germany and Free France and oddly enough, England supporting Germany while Japan is testing nuclear weapons on Bikini Atoll!

Narration Lacking

Narrator's voice is grating like nails on a chalkboard and the story is disjointed.
