Compelling Story Or Plotstory or plot 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 eally hard for a City Schools: Lessons from New York reader to be able to associate with a protagonist that seems to have come fully developedight from the beginning without any personal conflict or struggles to generate any drama An.

Against my will I find myself drawn and into Resnick s work The book is much like the first and is definitely a light The Story Within read for a lazy afternoon The story is fairly linearevolving around one primary character and his interaction with the setting That character is what makes this all worth the time spent eading the book and ultimately the series Don t come

IN THIS STORY WITHOUT ANY REAL BEARING TO THEthis story without any eal bearing to the 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 I enjoyed the second Wilson Cole book a lot than second time than I did during my original The Arena: An Offering to Contemporary Monasticism 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 thateally fleshes out the characters and of course introduces some of the best of the ecurring characters such as Val and David Copperfield I utterly enjoyed ereading the book2015 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 The second Starship novel by Resnick finds Captain Cole traversing the backwaters of the galaxy and deciding that the key to survival is to become a pirate but only to A Kangaroo's Life raid the ships of bad guys Along the way he encounters and enlists the aid of the like woman Valkyrie Val for short Various adventures ensue paving the way toward the next phase of the Captain and crew s next phase of conflict with the Republic contained in volume three of the series.
