But unfortunately there are a number of things that makes you laugh out but for a different reason. It is just some very silly facts that are brought into the story that makes you wonder.
Lets start with our "hero", the new space destroyer captain. He is a 28 years old officer who went out into space at the age of ten and now is not only a combat veteran but also a tactical and technical genius. Who would put a 28 year old officer in charge of a destroyer in the Navies of today? Being a military man myself I can only smile at this idea. Or maybe a space destroyer is so much easier to command than a destroyer of today?
It is the year 2315 and for some reason computer technology must have stopped developing around 2015 because there is almost nothing in the book done by computers that can not be done today. Instead of having a spaceship run by computers, it is run by people.
It is the year 2315 and space soldiers still use pistols M1911! A four hundred year old personnel weapon! Not only that, they use 7,62/51 mm ammunition in their rifles as well. Not to mention that they also use swords...But in order to make this a space variant of old sailing ship combat I can accept the swords.
In 2315 people still use reading glasses and their "telephones" are made by Nokia!Read more ›
I enjoyed this thoroughly and have downloaded the second in the series already. It's just the ticket for those who enjoy both science fiction and the Aubrey-Maturin series of novels by Patrick O'Brian there is a resemblance, but if anything as a Homage. It's well thought out and even though it's set in the 24th Century it doesn't make silly analogies to the Royal Navy of Nelson, there is no Rum, Sodomy or the Lash and thankfully no 2D ship of the line tactics.
I read this in one sitting and just could not put it down. It ranks equally with the best from Weber, Stross and other brilliant authors in the genre.
Buy Buy Buy! - you won't be disappointed!!..well done guys and I can't wait for the 2nd novel (and more) in the series.

A good mix of space and terrestrial fleet jargon in a fine format, with a good story leading into other exploits for the crew of Cumberland.Published 14 months ago by Billy
