Alanson teases, and then pulls a 3.5

This book is like 3.5 except that he listened to fans and made it a proper length book. The characters are fine and the story is interesting enough, but my issue with this installment (and it's a big one), is that he teases one of the most awesome and game changing elements in the series and then goes off to characters that AREN'T the Merry Band. It's just...painful knowing that we could be listening to THE most action packed and exciting chapter, only to have an adequate story forced on us instead.

Trouble on Paradise pt. II

I think most fans agree that the true magic of this series is the Joe/Skippy dynamic. This book has relatively little of that. It rates a solid, "Meh". Save your credit.

Tricked by the sample audio into wasting a credit.

Hey! Joe and Skippy are back! As far as you know. Kidding! They're hardly there at all! But the audio sample got your credit! Psyche! It's nearly all about the Paradise team. Again. After dinging customers for a credit for a half book pretending to be a whole one, all with no Skippy or Joe in "Paradise," I'm beginning to think this author is a jerk as he nearly does it again, but at least with a whole book. Here's what I'm saying, though: Remember when you watched the first Matrix movie, and kept waiting for the sequels to do the first movie justice, but in the end you just wasted money on tickets for a long winded, crappy, confused ending that had lost track of its plot and it's characters? See where I'm going with this?

A couple chapters of Skippy

I don't know about you, but I'm really only interested in the story revolving around the magnificent beer can. I don't really care about the refugees on Paradise and their attempts to prove to the hamsters how valuable they are. You can bypass this story and be fine.

Bait and switch?

This is like going to watch a star wars movie, expecting to see Luke and Han, but end up seeing jar jar. Love the series up to this point..

least favorite of the series

Love this series but this book fell short of expectations! R C killed it as always!!! wish we would have had more Joe, Skippy and the Pirates and less of the others. I understand why he did it and i enjoyed it... can't wait for more

This one fell wwaaayyy short

I love the Skippy and Joe parts, but they had little to do with this one. Perkins team was 75%. Hate to say but I'm thinking of just returning this.

It’s a side story

It’s a side story. It starts off with the merry band and then veers. It should be a expeditionary force universe book not book 6

Not what I want from the series

RC Bray is good as usual. So full marks there. But I feel this should have been better advertised as a side story. I don’t care about these characters. I didn’t listen to the 3.5 book. And I actually don’t feel like completing this book.

Pointless side story.

I was looking forward for so long for next book, hoping it was a continuation on the main story. Instead all we got was this filler book.

Ein (hoffentlich) gutes Ende

Nachdem Teil 5 etwas aufgesetzt war und nochmal ein offenes Ende hatte, fand ich es schade, dass diese Reihe so unschön in die Länge gestreckt wurde.
Auch wenn Skippy hier etwas kurz kommt, ist dieser Teil wieder gut geschrieben und bietet einen guten Ausklang.

More Skippy, more Bishop - more pirates! RC Bray is doing a fantastic job. We need more of it.

Love the book and the series

Another awesome book by Craig Alanson featuring „his magnificent awesomeness Skippy“! 100% recommendation for anyone who loves a good sci-fi story, great characters and just a fun universe.

Less skippy, same action

It’s about the rest of the expeditionary force and it’s as good as skippy and the pirates. Okay, less funny but more serious action. Keep coming with more stories, the end predicts it.
If you listen till book 6, don’t think about, get number 7!

Willkommen zurück auf Paradise

Kurze Warnung vorweg, das Buch handelt zu 60-80% von Paradise im Stiele von "Trouble on Paradise".
Unsere Piraten sind zwar zu beginn und zum Schluss dabei, aber man sollte sich dessen bewusst sein, sonst könnte man enttäuscht werden.

Kurze Anmerkung zur Story, gerade bezüglich der Mavericks finde ich es teils etwas zu abstrus, auch wenn sie insgesamt unterhaltsam, spannend und humorvoll ist. Bei den Mavericks selbst fehlt es noch etwas an Unterhaltungswert der sonst durch unsere zwei Hauptcharaktere getragen wird.

I'd say this is the best book of the series so far

Go ahead. If you liked the previous books, you won't regret this one. Funny, tense, beer cans, it's all there.
