Sintesi dell'editore

Prince Roger MacClintock, Tertiary Heir to the Throne of Man, was a spoiled rotten, arrogant, whiny, thoroughly useless young pain in the butt. But that was before an assassination attempt marooned the Royal Brat and his bodyguards on the planet Marduk, and before they had to march half way around the entire planet, through 120-degree heat and five-hour rainstorms in jungles full of damnbeasts, capetoads, killerpillars, and atul-grak, not to mention hostile peoples, to make their way back to port.

Under the right circumstances, even the most spoiled brat can grow up fast, and it turns out that, under his petulant exterior, Prince Roger is a true MacClintock, a scion of the warrior dynasty that created the Empire of Man. Now both prince and bodyguards are determined to get each other off the planet alive. Of course, the planet has other ideas.

©2001 David Weber and John Ringo (P)2006 Blackstone Audio Inc.

"[An] admirable continuation...The development of a Mardukan combined-arms force will fascinate sophisticated readers (the manual of arms for a four-armed, 10-foot soldier is a thing of beauty), while the overthrow of the Boman will grip straightforward action lovers in spite of the staggering body count." (Publishers Weekly)
"This fast-paced sequel to March Upcountry continues the odyssey of men and women caught in a struggle for survival and determined to maintain their courage and humor in the face of overwhelming odds. Coauthors Weber and Ringo excel in depicting the lives and times of soldiers both on and off the battlefield." (Library Journal)

Good continuation to the first book

Overall a very nice book, one truly unexpected sudden shift that really grabbed my interest.

Good book, superb reader

Any additional comments?

Stefan Rudnicki is one of my favorite readers for military fiction. His voice is calm and relentless (appropriate for military), showing little emotion and yet somehow conveying the character's emotions and intentions. He is very good at distinguishing the different characters.

Each of the species on Marduk has its own way of speaking. In addition, each character has his own way of speaking within that dialect. Truly amazing!

In the final book of the trilogy, there are three Terran military personnel. I can tell instantly which one is speaking. Some readers do this by having one lisp, or have a hoarse voice - Mr. Rucnicki doesn't have to resort to such cheap tricks. Highly recommended!

VERY ENJOYABLE!

Very interesting! The prince has become a leader and is earning the respect of his men. I like the captain who make a very good mentor for the prince. Also the romance between his Sargent major is beginning to bloom and I am looking forward to the next book.! Both writer and narrator are excellent.

Consistently Entertaining

What did you love best about March to the Sea?

If you want to enjoy a fine tale, like good battle scenes, charming characters and imaginative settings, this is a great series. You could nitpick about the sometimes overlong narratives and the recapitulations because its a series but the rest is so much fun, why bother. Of course there is more than a subtle dose of geopolitical allegory but since I share their views I quite comfortable with the the undercurrent.

What other book might you compare March to the Sea to and why?

Characterizations and battle craft remind of other Ringo novels, a winning formula so why not.

What does Stefan Rudnicki bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Just letting him get through the names and places alone is worth it.

Good as the first

The story continues as Roger and marines march on toward the space port. There are more epic battles to come along the way and the writing is as good it is in the first book.

John Ringo and David Weber are perfect!

Would you listen to March to the Sea again? Why?

I absolutely loved the characters in this series.

What other book might you compare March to the Sea to and why?

Any book by John Ringo is worth a listen!!!

Which scene was your favorite?

The most memorable moment for me was when I realized that I wished I could stand and fight alongside Prince Roger, and I no longer just wanted someone to just punch him in the mouth

Any additional comments?

a terrifying journey to manhood surrounded by the wilds of an alien planet.

Yes, they were out of order

We all know by now that the books were here out of order, but that's been corrected and all four books are now here at Audible.. Audible picked up the other books VERY fast.

"March to the Sea" chronicles Prince Roger and the Bronze Barbarian's (and some real barbarian's) march to the point where they will cross the sea to reach the "Empire of Man's space port".

More "Out of the Box thinking" from Weber and Ringo (I had the pleasure of talking to Ringo again at the 2006 Dragon*Con), and we get to see Prince Roger transform a bit more from the "Clothes Horse" that he was, into the "Respected Leader" that he will become.

Weber and Ringo consistently give us great Military Sci-fi.

Another Excellent and engrossing installment

Gripping stuff. I got right into the first book in the saga of Prince Roger and this one was just as good. Maybe a tad too much 'soldiering' and 'battle craft' but terrific characters and story. I can't decide now whether to wait for the audio book of part 3: 'March to the Stars' or just go out and buy the novel.

Gripping Stuff

I'm now listening to the four books in this series again. Hi-tech SF, political intrigue and a coming of age trek for Prince Roger and his bodyguard. Put this together with superb authors and a great narrator and you have one of the best buys you could make on Audible.
I've since purchased more audiobooks and books by Weber & Ringo and have yet to be disappointed. More please.

Good book - good series

I very much enjoyed this "Prince Roger" series and have listened to it more than once.



For fans of epic science fiction this is a good buy - although the emphasis is more on low tech than high tech.

TYPICAL RINGO

What did you like best about March to the Sea? What did you like least?

Its imaginative....but Ringo is obsessed with technical detail.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Ive listened to John Ringo stuff before. If you looking for deep and meaningful stories and complicated characters then look else where. In fact its almost an audiable comic. Its all swashbuckling stuff except its set in the future and on another planet, with lots of fighting enemy Aliens who are daft as planks and cant shoot straight and ofcourse die very easily :) You may find yourself drifting off a bit in places because he is obsessed with tech detail. That said its a decent romp if your in the mood for that sort of thing!

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Very good!

Did March to the Sea inspire you to do anything?

Not really?
