5 stars Great thinking man s space opera Fast, easy read that keeps you entertained throughout Wilson Cole is an excellent character.
2 in the Starship series A cerebral approach to space opera Wilson Cole and the crew of the Teddy R have deserted the Space Navy and must find a source of operating funds Having an armed military vessel at their disposal and being trained crewmen they ponder means of employing their talents Piracy seems an option, but having a case of morals precludes plundering innocent civilians but relieving pirates, who would plunder them, of their ill gotten gains seems a good idea A rollicking, fun read as Cole employs strategy in place of derring do.
Starship series Having busted their commander, Wilson Cole, out of the brig for disobeying orders that would have cost millions of lives, the crew of the starship Theodore Roosevelt find themselves on the run from their own fleet The plan Hoist the Jolly Roger Since Captain Cole is a moral man, he must figure out a way to practice piracy without actually harming anyone at least, anyone who doesn t have it coming As he and the Teddy R stumble their way through Piracy for Dummies, they make new enemies and find new allies that make the difference between real pirates and military professionals all the apparent.
Against my will I find myself drawn and into Resnick s work The book is much like the first, and is definitely a light read for a lazy afternoon The story is fairly linear, revolving around one primary character and his interaction with the setting That character is what makes this all worth the time spent reading the book, and ultimately the series Don t come to this book looking for deep philosopical topics, or deep dives into theoretical science This book is solidly positioned as an action adventure book very similar in feel to Harry Harrison s Stainless Steel Rat series.
Better than the first book, but that s not saying much Starship Pirates still suffers from the same issues that made Starship Mutiny somewhat of a bland reading experience While this book is fun in some ways, overall there s really a lack of a compelling story or plot that drives this story forward For the the most part, it s just Wilson Cole our protagonist thinking or talking his way out from one event to another that s strung along It s really hard for a reader to be able to associate with a protagonist that seems to have come fully developed right from the beginning without any personal conflict or struggles to generate any drama And with Cole constantly acting with his know it all attitude, it also deflates any feeling of crisis to any event.
What also doesn t help this series is the fact that it s billed as military sci fi , but seems to lack much of either We do have our Captains, and Sergeants, and Aliens, and Spaceships but these are just tropes placed in this story without any real bearing to the plot For the most part, this story could easily have been placed in the South Pacific, 200 years ago, much as less in space 3000 years in the future This is basically space opera of the Buck Rogers sort thinly disguised as military sci fi It s safe to say, Master Commander an 18th century naval series is probably military sci fi, than the Starship series is At least there, there were actual battles galore.
Cole se ha cansado de su honrada vida como capit n de una fabulosa nave de guerra y ahora se va a dedicar a ser un pirata noob, pero con gran ingenio y todo extra amente le sale redondo.
La novela se divide en 3 relatos distintos pero que tiene algo que servir para el siguiente relato Las aventuras de Cole son llenas de clich s que no fallan, por ello es un entretenimiento constante, no bajo el ritmo en ning n momento, la historia es simple y se agradece Robar n a quien se lo merece, de forma muy inteligente, pero algunas veces es necesario un poco de sangre Este tomo me ha recordado a la seria Firefly con razas alien genas y m s humor.
I enjoyed the second Wilson Cole book a lot than second time than I did during my original read through Having fled the Republic and faced with a need to sustain himself and the ship, Cole turns to piracy It s a low point for the Cole and the crew, and the first time felt like a low point in the series This time it felt like hardship that really fleshes out the characters and of course introduces some of the best of the recurring characters such as Val and David Copperfield I utterly enjoyed rereading the book.
2015 The kids are probably as hooked on these characters and this story as any that I ve shared with them On to meet the Platinum Duke
VOTO ALL INTERO CICLO 3,4Il ciclo Starship di Mike Resnick una space opera militare che fa il verso ad opere certamente pi autorevoli e qualitativamente migliori non affatto eccelsa, ma dalla sua ha una lettura estremamente semplice forse fin troppo e il dono della sintesi.
Insomma, un qualcosa da leggere nel pieno della rilassatezza, senza pretendere troppo I 3 libri centrali senza sono senza dubbio i pi divertenti, mentre il primo volume fin troppo arronzato, per i miei gusti, mentre il capitolo conclusivo ha un epilogo da top paraculata.
Insomma, consigliato a chi ama la space opera militare e non ha niente di meglio da leggere sottomano.
La Teddy R Era Un Astronave Da Combattimento Ma Ora Una Nave Pirata Il Suo Comandante, Wilson Cole, Non Ha Altra Scelta Per Sfuggire A Un Infamante Accusa Di Ammutinamento, Ma Trasformarsi In Un Corsaro Non Un Impresa Facile Wilson Ha Bisogno Di Nuovi Maestri, Ed Ecco Entrare In Scena Due Esperti Del Settore Come Val La Valchiria E David Copperfield, Il Ricettatore Extraterrestre Con Questi Memorabili Personaggi Mike Resnick Plurivincitore Del Premio Hugo Torna All Insegnamento Del Suo Pi Recente Ciclo Interstellare La Lezione Nella Galassia Non Si Finisce Mai D Imparare Slightly disappointing even if you re expecting a light read after a hard day at work Resnick s space opera is a straightforward adventure with no surprises, hard choices and casualties No matter how hard and unusual situation Cole is in, he just knows what to do and has so much luck his arrogance annoyed me so much too , that it s simply unbelievable as a story.
Although I gave it just two stars, if you have a long evening and want to read something not ambitious and typical for a space opera with the macho type man, who knows it all and no other character matters at all it may be your title to chose and have fun reading it.
