Review

"Hemry has a solid sense of military thinking and lunar fighting, and I really liked this series." " --Philadelphia Weekly Press

"The Stark trilogy is a set of books any sci-fi fan should have in their bookcases. John G. Hemry has written a sci-fi classic here." --Geeklore.co.uk

I started reading the Lost fleet a few years back and after getting a kindle and gift card for Christmas I decided to treat myslef to this trilogy from Jack Campbell. After the usual fast and easy service from Amazons I settled down to read the set. I have to say that there are some similarities between the series, the commanding officer who doesn't want the job, the military being controlled by increasingly inept politicians who in this case are in the grip of powerful corporations who don't care about anything except profit. I always get the feeling that a lot of the militaristic attitudes are from personal experience (which i believe the author has) which makes them all the more readable. As books go this series is an easy read, I don't mean that they are lightweight or throwaway, but they are well written, easy to get into and very hard to put down, I have read all three and enjoyed the full set, the story arc is well plotted and fills the three volumes nicely. While I am a fan of Sci-Fi and fiction works in gerneral I have to say that I love these books and the Lost Fleet series so to any other sci-fi fans out there I recommend them heartily, I love the easy storytelling without the host of boring dry technical details that you find in a lot of fiction works which keeps the plot rolling and the story flowing nicely. Excellent set, now waiting for the JAG in space series to appear for the Kindle.

The three stars is an overall judgement of the entire three-book series, and I think it's fitting that they be reviewed like that. To me, the series starts off well, maintains the momentum in the second book and finishes off rather lamely (I'll say no more than that in order not to give anything away).

The story is of mutiny in the US Army on the Moon, pushed too far by commanders caring only of their own futures, with Sgt. Ethan Stark reluctantly forced into military leadership. How he handles this against the combined enmity of the other nations on the Moon and the US Administration back on Earth, and copes with the equally rebellious but suspicious Moon civilian colonists, forms the story of the books. The story is in general quite well told, with Stark, with an enormous burden of major command on his unprepared shoulders, trying to cope and to grope towards a future the nature of which he's totally uncertain, even if he wins. The dialogue is occasionally repetitive and we really don't need so many Spanish words sprinkled into it.

What I really liked is the portrayal of a government totally in the pay of major corporations (like the current US Republican Party) and the total divorce of these people - government, military and corporate - from the everyday concerns of ordinary folk/soldiers, and the ability of those on high to live in an alternative reality that, in their view, will always perform exactly according to their rules, like the Bush (Dubya) Administration and its attempted remaking of reality to suit particular political/commercial ends. And it comes complete with suitable jargon to bolster this perceived reality (Mr.

I enjoyed the first two in the series and I would give them both 4 stars(just). However this book is totally retarded. The main character has no guts and he is always near a nervous breakdown because he doesn't want to be in charge. Every soldier that dies brings on a panic attack. The main character is also pretty stupid, and despite Cambells efforts he comes across as fairly incompetent and ungrateful for his authority. The dialogue is exceptionally wooden, and I find that I tend to drift off while I'm reading, or skip whole paragraphs or even pages. The book is exceptionally light on action, and the action that is included ends up with disastrous consequences.

The most stupid thing that i saw was the a soldier being brain dead(or unaccountably unconscious) because his healthy internal organs 'thought' they were damaged, and if the life support was turned off they would shut down. That doesn't even make sense - what does being in a coma have to do with internal organs 'thinking' they don't work? And how would that effect his brain if they were healthy? And why cant the doctor speak like a doctor, and not use "Nicknames". I don't care how far it is in the future, doctors do not use nicknames, EVER.

In summary, this book isn't worth the time of day; Clearly Jack Campbell has let his publisher rush him and he has turned out this pile of ****. While the previous books were okay this is virtually unreadable.

By Flemming Nielsen on 29 Dec. 2011
Format: Paperback
Stark's Crusade is the last book in the Stark trilogy. It's a pretty good read, but it is unfortunately the weakest book og the three. The battles are as fine as they come, but the story is rather heavy on the flag-waving. All the we-are-good-Americans and long-live-the-Constitution is of course in line with the feel of the triliogy and you do sort of have to accept it as part of the premise for the story. However, for a non-American like myself, there does seem to be rather a lot of it and the near constant boy-scout do-goodery unfortunately takes up too much space in the story for my taste. I feel Campbell/Hemry could have fleshed out the story a little more, instead of being quite as blatantly pro-American.
The trilogy is still very much worth a read, eventhough the ending is a little weak.
