My original Station Breaker audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.Station Breaker, written by Andrew Mayne, is the first book in the Space Ops Series which is getting some attention due to the high customer ratings and reviews At this time, the first two books are currently available in audiobook format on Audible It is unclear if the series will become a trilogy or something much larger I guess we will have to wait and see The book was well narrated by Andrew Mayne [...]
Let me start off with the only thing that bothered me Our protagonist, David Dixon, is so genre savvy that he knows he s in a thriller novel Not on a 4th wall breaking sort of way, but I m his inner monologue he knows all the tropes to avoid He even refers to the McGuffin as the McGuffin But for the plot to kick off, he has to hold the idiot ball for the first couple chapters, ignoring sign after sign that something is up The inconsistency threatened to take me out of the story for the first bit [...]
Gawd awfulI generally try to give authors the benefit of the doubt in reviewing a book I know it takes time, effort and dedication to produce a novel of any sort Therefore just having made the effort deserves a certain amount of credit No credit is due here None Zero Zip Nada This book is just plain stupid So do we blame the author or the editor or the agent or well ME for having read 42% before just giving up I ll admit to my part it was remotely possible that a gold nugget could have emerged f [...]
Another fast paced FUN ride by Andrew Mayne Man, its difficult for me to put his books down once I start If I had a few hours together I think thats how I would prefer to read them All at once On top of the fast paced cat and mouse intrigue that kept me sucked in, I really enjoyed all the detail around space, space travel, the space program, and the not too distant future space industry.
Fast Paced, Humorous, Exciting SciFi Espionage Read Station Breaker, authored by Mr Andrew Wayne, is a fast paced, humorous and exciting SciFi espionage read It does require the frequent suspension of credulity, but the action and story makes it worthwhile.In the near future, the MC, David Dixon is an civilian astronaut, working for a commercial space corporation David, having been passed over by the military due to his then deficient eyesight, took a longer route in becoming a pilot and an astr [...]

Station Breaker is a really enjoyable space based action story Be advised, the entire book is almost 100% first person narrative The hero shares almost every thought with the readers That was OK with me, but your mileage may differ Also, the action danger combat scenes are over the top than those of most James Bond or Jason Bourne stories.If you love very fast paced wall to wall action with some tech stuff, and a sort of ordinary guy placed into a heroic position, this book should be right in y [...]
This was a very fun, very fast moving novel.It starts with one action sequence and pretty quickly flows into the next There s great chase scenes and the hero is a good combination of out of his element and quick on his feet.This was very fun, but the ending isn t an ending It s not even fair to call it a cliffhanger It just kind of stops and then it s like to be continued.But despite a bad ending is still a very fun read and the audio book has a reader who is having a blast with all the onomonop [...]
I like thrillers, but along the lines of Ludlum, Clancy, and even Cussler However, if you like your protagonists to speak in nearly constant one liners and have the maturity level of 12 year old boys, this is the book for you Additionally, the writing style was often as immature as the book s hero.Actual quotes from the book BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BAP BAP BAP BAP BAP BAP BAP BAP BAP BANG BANG BAP BAP BAP BAP BOOM I declared DNF at about 40%.
Fun read Improbable but very entertaining Will read of your books I found it curious that the main character always feels his decisions are a poor choice to the point it becomes predictable Fun read Improbable but very entertaining Will read of your books I found it curious that the main character always feels his decisions are a poor choice to the point it becomes predictable.
Very informative and interesting as the author weaves a possible near future into the history of just about everything Fortunately those informative inserts interrupted the misadventures of the hero so much I tended to overlook the plausibility of what he was actually doing It also kept him at arms length so that, despite his cavalier humor, I was unable to really care about him Not really interested in reading the sequel.
Andrew Mayne thinks out of the box and his writing is never formulaic I had read a couple of his books before I downloaded Station Breaker and was entertained and involved from the first page The pace, humour and originality of the story and the way it jumps like a firecracker from space to earth and back to space kept me amused and interested right to the improbable but enjoyable ending So glad there are books to come.
Wild rideThis was a real page turner, especially the first half It lulled a bit in the start of the second half but ended with a bang I spent a lot of time deciding who the perfect actor would be to star in a movie like this, because it seems made for Hollywood I will read the next one.
What a fun read I m not sure why I picked this book because it is not my favorite genre, but I was surely surprised Not only did I enjoy it, I couldn t put it down I found it to be thrilling, funny, and please pardon the expression, but a rocket read I downloaded part 2 of the series immediately And, hoping there is a third one available in about two days.
Entertaining start to finish butThere s a lot to like about Station Breaker, in a guilty action movie, not a lot of intelligent thinking needed kind of way It s clearly doing its best Martian imitation crossed with a side show of Jason Bourne Nevertheless it was a pleasure to read.
I usually don t care for books that keep you totally in the dark for so long, but this one works It works solely on how well the main character is written Its funny and fast paced, while the science is well thought out and explained Reminiscent of Andy Weir s The Martian, but with action Maybe Ridley Scott and Matt Damon should look into the movie rights
I didn t think I would enjoy this book How wrong was I It was fast paced and thrilling I found it so difficult to put it down I wondered why I liked it so much and decided that it was a thriller quite different to many of the others I have read Yes a couple of people died but the twists and turns of the plot as the reader tries to fathom who is up to what and why is captivating And I like the fact that there are not too many grisly murder details Plus, the hero himself, David Dixon has a humorou [...]
Very enjoyable space adventure I enjoyed this book a lot I don t normally read space books, I rather fantasy but I liked all Andrew Maynes books that I read before, so I tried this and I m glad I did
Loved this book So much like The Martian I think Chris Pratt would be great for this part it really would be a great movie but expensive to make Reading Orbital next I like this author, will read if his books
Great This is a five star book It was well written with good and believable characters It was thrilling, funny,exciting and had a really good ending The story spans several genre s and ages It s worth reading a second time.
Fast pace, great character, science based sci fi, witty self aware dialogue I m not sure if the main character is the luckiest unlucky guy alive or the unluckiest lucky guy alive, but he sure is fun to follow through this adventure My only complaint is it endedoh wait there is a second book.
Really quite excellent bookwrittingIn addition to a likeable main character and a great storyline, this book had political intrigue, real life science, references to current events, lots of action, and great dialog To sum it up in one word EXCITING
Lost in SpaceInteresting story line Very different A little too hammy for my likes I like humor but this is over done.
I read these out of order so .I don t like spoilers I like the story and the science is good.A good read.
A real techno thriller I m a sucker for near future sci fi This one is relentlessly fast paced and plausible enough to be really satisfying Keep them coming Andrew
Space geeks and non geeks will enjoyThis book s character had equal amounts of technology intellect and good old intuition to make a great story Riveting A must read
So much funRecently discovered this author, what a great read Haven t had this much fun reading a story in a long time
Non stop thrill ride Mayne is a great story teller The first person style and relentless action make it hard to put down Very entertaining.
Thoroughly enjoyed it Usually I skim when I read but didn t do that with this one It kept my interest Especially like the descriptive prose of outer space, tools used, etc I recommend.
Great book Very exciting and kept me riveted I was just disappointed it ended i could have kept reading I can t wait to read the rest of the series.
