    Rookie Privateer is a basic space opera, though a bit far fetched Sure, this is science fiction, and we all make big allowances in what s allowed on the technical side In that regard this story is fine, a classic space tale of mining and space ships and independent colonies and pirates But the character fiction is a little over the top for me I was never really able to accept that two people, fresh out of required levels of schooling presumably something like high school equivalent and new Rookie Privateer is a basic space opera, though a bit far fetched Sure, this is science fiction, and we all make big allowances in what s allowed on the technical side In that regard this story is fine, a classic space tale of mining and space ships and independent colonies and pirates But the character fiction is a little over the top for me I was never really able to accept that two people, fresh out of required levels of schooling presumably something like high school equivalent and newly legalized as adults, somehow have all the necessary knowledge to jump directly into a complicated business in which neither of them has any experience In fact, great pains are taken to make sure the reader knows the protagonists have very little experience in anything outside their tiny personal circles prior to these adventures Yet not only are they instantly able to cope, but they are immediately welcomed by the regional space military authorities who had never heard of either of our heroes, and tasked with a military operation the authorities have been unable to carry out themselves It all comes across as a bit Walter Mitty like.If you can lay that aside, Rookie Privateer is a decent story But there were two main irritations for me First, the dialogue is very stilted, the sort that comes from an inexperienced writer who hasn t read his dialogue out loud and so doesn t realize it sounds like people practicing speaking in a language foreign to them This crops up in all situations, not just when our two heroes are trying to sound official onboard their spacecraft The second problem was a third major character who was missing for most of the book After a budding romantic interest is introduced at the beginning of the tale, she is whisked off elsewhere and never participates in the action again But she does come up again and again in references and a couple swapped messages It s a clear indication that she s meant to reappear somewhere down the line in another book I guess that s OK, but I don t like being bashed with repeated reminders that I m reading a component in a series

    I received a copy of this book from Booklikes in exchange for an honest review.In no way was this a bad book If anything I was a bad reader for this particular book I hate reviwing books that were well written but not my style Here it goes.McFarlane s writing is very matter of fact, straight forward, and technical If you really like sci first mechanisms and machinery and how they work, this is a great book for you Unfortunately, I m not such a huge fan and was a little bored with the in dep I received a copy of this book from Booklikes in exchange for an honest review.In no way was this a bad book If anything I was a bad reader for this particular book I hate reviwing books that were well written but not my style Here it goes.McFarlane s writing is very matter of fact, straight forward, and technical If you really like sci first mechanisms and machinery and how they work, this is a great book for you Unfortunately, I m not such a huge fan and was a little bored with the in depth descriptions Also, these descriptions readlike a technical manual, which is not a bad thing, but again, not what I really enjoy reading There is no flowery language in this book, so if you are like me and need a little fluff in your descriptions, look elsewhere Said descriptions due have a tendency to get a little long as do those describing mundane events I definitely could have skipped over the cleaning scenes I get it, you re still cleaning It s still gross If it s not interesting to you, it sure as hell isn t interesting to readers My only real criticism was that I hated the descriptions of female characters There was some really creepy male gaze stuff going on While men were described as being short with brown eyes, every curve of the female bodies were analyzed and when the main character was caught admiring them, most of the time the women responded by giggling, winking, smiling, or shooting back a flirtatious line If some guy was gawking at me in such a way, I can tell you none of those would be my first reaction As far as females went in the book, most didn t do anything Tabby definitely had potential, but Liam s fascination with her anatomy distracted me from her as an actual character The same holds true for Marny She was pretty awesome and led most of the action at the end of the book, but Liam s repetitive descriptions of her curves rely emphasized the whole what a great fighter for a woman And to keep the spoilers to a minimum, I was disappointed in the compulsive need to pair off strong females I need a littleout of my characters Overall, not bad, mostly just not a good match for me If you like straight forward writing with no flowery descriptions, check this book out It s an interesting story with lots of twists and turns

  5. Autumn Autumn says:

    A thoroughly enjoyable pulp sci fi novel for a young reader not too young as there were some references to sex and prostitutes not to mention violence, I d say on the younger end of the young adult set.


  6. Jay Sprenkle Jay Sprenkle says:

    Good space adventureGood likable characters, technology seems good without any obvious flaws, well edited, with a satisfying ending Recommended I would rate as adult or new adult No excessive sex or violence but does have both


  7. Hilton mather Hilton mather says:

    Good start to a military sci fi A fun read, my only complaint is that the main characters seem to develop there skills ratherquickly than would seem likely but I understand needing to keep the reader interested I look forward to the next book.

    I I don t know why I liked this book, but I did.Seriously, there s several things in this book that I _shouldn t_ like Extremely direct prose lacking nuance and metaphor Creepy descriptions of female characters Long, detailed descriptions of things that do not matter.No, really, I read several pages worth of descriptions of the main character cleaning dried feces from all surfaces of a disgusting bathroom Why did I do that Despite all this I found myself wanting to keep reading I want I I don t know why I liked this book, but I did.Seriously, there s several things in this book that I _shouldn t_ like Extremely direct prose lacking nuance and metaphor Creepy descriptions of female characters Long, detailed descriptions of things that do not matter.No, really, I read several pages worth of descriptions of the main character cleaning dried feces from all surfaces of a disgusting bathroom Why did I do that Despite all this I found myself wanting to keep reading I wanted to knowabout the universe these kids are living in and, to a smaller extent, I wanted to hearabout the technology that exists And the book kept giving me little doses of that information, just enough to keep me going.All that said I m going to try reading the next book, but I suspect it s going to takethan an IV drip of world development to keep me sustained through another book of the same writing style
