Comments Starship: Rebel

  • Stephen

    3.5 stars. I am a big fan of Mike Resnick and have enjoyed the first four installments of the Starship series. This installment gets 3.5 stars in part because it suffers in comparison to Starship: Pirate and Starship: Mercenary which I liked a bit more than this entry. That said, this is still among the best military SF series that I have read with a terrific main character. I would also point out that I listened to the audiobook of this story done by Jonathan Davies (who has done all of the boo [...]

    Starship: Rebel was an okay book, certainly not great. Maybe if I hadn't seen so many episodes of Star Trek and hadn't been reading science fiction for 40 years, I might have enjoyed it more. However, the SF tropes seemed tired and worn out here. The characters are one-dimensional and the plot is very predictable. Most of them survive where no human should survive. Now, onto my review of the audio production. I loved Jonathan Davis' narration of The Windup Girl. He's got a voice that reminds me [...]

    VALUTAZIONE PERSONALE: 3In questo quarto episodio della serie Starship si gettano le basi che porteranno inevitabilmente Wilson Cole ed i suoi alleati allo scontro finale con la Repubblica.Meno affascinante dei due precedenti, I ribelli e l'astronave ne conserva tuttavia la struttura semplice e lineare, rendendolo godibile per una lettura non impegnata e di puro intrattenimento, anche se le situazioni e gli espedienti narrativi cominciano ad essere ripetitivi.Vedremo come andrà a finire nel pro [...]

    I'm going to write one review for this entire seriesThe Starship series premise had me interested. Set well into the future when mankind is at war with the Teroni Federation, one naval officer finds reason to mutiny (hence, the first book, "Starship: Mutiny". Over time he becomes a pirate (book two: "Starship: Pirate"), a mercenary (book three: "Starship: Mercenary"), then rebels formally against the human government (book four: "Starship: Rebel") and finally takes on the humans directly (book f [...]

    I bought and devoured the first 3 books in the series when they were initially released. Then I stopped since they only came in hardback. Now, picking up the fourth, I look at this Space Opera like tale and see far too many holes as the space travel makes little of Light Years, Parsecs, the ability to navigate. The heroes seem to be able to get around in hours, while the enemy, the Republic with 3 Million ships, and of course 3 million officers who can navigate, can't get around anywhere near as [...]

    William Cole finally decides to take on the Navy that trained him, attempting to end their abuses on the Inner Frontier. This novel is the story of his arc from respectable, gritty rogue to admirable hero. I love this book beginning to end. My favorite of the series to date.On the re-read in 2013, I don't think I liked it as well as books 2 and 3 as it strains credulity a bit, but still, the inspirational ending wins me over completely. This is just a great series and I'm glad I reread it.2015: [...]

    #4 in the Starship series. It's 1969 Galactic Era and this exciting, sometimes humorous, series has been set into author Resnick's Birthright Universe. His novels and stories span an 18,000 stretch of future history. I haven't ventured into the rest of the Universe but the 5 year span of this series makes for good exciting military science fiction.Starship series - Almost a year has passed since the events of Starship: Mercenary. Captain Wilson Cole now commands a fleet of almost fifty ships, an [...]

  • Ryan Abe.

    The Starship series feels more and more like a popcorn space adventure. Though not quite as operatic nor fully developed as some; yet still thoroughly enjoyable. All too often it feels like my mind is eating a PP&J sammich as opposed to a well prepared medium rare Top Sirloin. Which all in all isn't necessarily a bad thing; if a fast paced, easy to read quickie is what you want with little to no actual substance. Hell, the page count is only 230+ pages and Resnick's writing is so easy to rea [...]

  • Luca Cresta

    Notevole questo quarto episodio dell'astronave ribelle Teddy Roosvelt e del suo equipaggio.Molta azione, razze aliene a gogò ed un'ironia sottile che non guasta mai.Insomma un grande romanzo di quella fantascienza di cui per lungo tempo si è sentita la mancanza e di cui non venogno mai pubblicati abbastanza testi.

  • Stephanie

    Another good book. The enemy becomes the Navy that Cole used to be a part of. Lots of excitement and sadness.

  • Mark

    Starship: Rebel is the fourth book in the starship series, following on from Mutiny, Pirate and Mercenary. So far the series has gone from strength to strength, building on from each book in a logical and enjoyable fashion. I mentioned in my review of Starship: Mercenary that I felt there were no surprises in store, that everything seemed to go the right way for Cole and the crew of the Teddy R. Starship: Rebel does away with that notion and manages to up the stakes while still delivering a comp [...]

  • Michele (Mikecas)

    Da:webalice/michelestelQuarto capitolo di questa serie di cinque che, seppure inserita nella lunghissiva vicenda della Storia Futura, è una storia a sè. Avevo commentato, non proprio positivamente, i primi tre volumi: 1, 2, 3. Con questo quarto capitolo Resnick raggiunge però il suo livello minimo della serie, perché Wilson Cole non solo non è più il genio strategico iniziale, ma ormai commette errori su errori, solo che per caso, gli va sempre bene. Nonostante i timidi consigli dei suoi u [...]

  • BobA707

    Summary: Military SF series book 4. Things getting more serious with a mass battle (very complex, completely unrealistic, but a good read). I don't like the universe, I find the plots are just not thought through properly, but the writing is very engagingPlotline: In a word poor. Silly at times, haphazard, comical (in a bad sense).Premise: OK as long as you leave your brain firmly switched off, otherwise the whole thing ends up in a black hole.Writing: Descriptive, simple, very engaging. The big [...]

  • Craig

    This fourth volume in the series continues the exploits and adventures of Wilson Cole, the rest of the crew of the Teddy Roosevelt, and their ever-expanding cast of associates. This one starts with the same light and humorous tone that characterized the previous volumes, but quickly turns dark and serious when one of the main characters is lost. Resnick does almost too good of a job painting the odds that they go up against as hopelessly overwhelming, but manages to leave the reader anxious for [...]

  • Liberty

    Having never read Resnick before, I had no idea what to expect when I cracked open this book. I was pleasantly surprised, especially joining a series in progress. I loved the characters, and was pleasantly surprised by the believability minus heavy swearing. I think I could count swear words on one hand! So refreshing. I'll be reading the rest of the Starship series for sure.

  • Jonathan

    I've been following and enjoying this series from the beginning. As usual, I like Mike Resnick for his exciting but light style (in most of his books). I'm sure I'll read the next one, but this series is somewhat monotonous and predictable if you've read a number of Resnick's other books. If not, it wouldn't be a bad introduction to his work.

  • John

    By the fourth book, I’m slogging through them because I purchased books 4-5 before I’d finished reading book 3. I enjoyed books 1-2 (I overlooked the flaws). But, by the time I finished book 3, if I had not already purchased books 4-5, I wouldn’t have.Read the rest of my review @ my blog

  • Joe Slavinsky

    Fast-paced, humorous, and hard to put down. This is the 4th book of the series, which I read in 3 days. One of my favorite genres is military science-fiction. This is it in spades, and space opera, as well. I've already started the next one. This series is like popcorn. Once you start, you can't get enough.

  • Andrew

    I find it so hard to rate this series, there are so many moments I want to throw my kindle at the wall and so many others I can't put it down. This one was better but it seems more and more unbelievable as it goes along.

  • Tom Rowe

    3.5 stars really. Brain candy. Fun but predictable. #4 in a series of 5, but the other four are predictable from this book and their titles. I haven't read any of the other books in the series. I might go back and read them because there were some fun characters.

  • Greg

    Another good instance in this space western series Don't sweat the science, just enjoy the good guys kicking butt

  • Creed

    Simplistic SciFi. Somehow I wound up with #2 and #4 of this series, but the backstory was easy enough to catch up on.

  • Craig

    Good 4th title in the series.

  • John (JP)

    327 pages Science fiction. 4th of the Wilson Cole series. They Killed off my favorite character. But such is war. This is great light reading.

  • William

    Listen as audio book 2012

  • Jean-Philippe


  • Jesi

    Fun book. That's about all I have to say.

  • Amy

    I think the best of the series so far, apart from the death that made me want to throw this book away and burn it.

  • Clyde

    #4 in series still good!! would't mind re reading these

  • Randy Smith

    Very Good !!!!!
