Review #1

Midst Toil and Tribulation audiobook free

I resisted this series for years, because I am a Christian and generally don’t like books that are written from an atheistic standpoint (anti-religion, religious leaders as villains, emphasis on the oppressiveness of religion, etc.) Then I began reading OFF ARMAGEDDON REEF (Safehold #1) and discovered, to my delight, that the series is not anti-religion, it is pro-freedom, encouraging religious people to think about their beliefs and do what is right, rather than blindly follow whatever some religious authority figure tells them. The series introduces wonderful new characters, including some with all the admirable qualities we appreciate in other Weber heroes. I totally love this series, and am sure I will want to re-read them, just as I do the Honor Harrington series. If you like space opera, colony worlds, the struggle to survive OR if you like the days of sailing ships and the Horatio Hornblower type of sea battles, there is something here for you! Great world-building, great characters, great action, and altogether many hours of outstanding entertainment. Enjoy!

Midst Toil and Tribulation audiobook in series Safehold

Midst Toil and Tribulation deals with men full of hatred, killing men women and children. It includes partisans struggling through blizzards and armies slogging through mud (I hate mud). But it also shows good people sacrificing for those they love and for things they believe. There are deep thoughts and worthy ideals and funny scenes. This is my second reading of the Safehold series and as I read this book I eagerly anticipated chapters that I knew were really a pleasure to read, and they were. Midst Toil and Tribulation holds a key position in the series and I wouldn’t miss it.

I liked the premise of the storyline but the over abundant detail and lack of progress has made this the last book in the series I’ll read. The books are around $10 each, not counting audio, and at the end of book 6 we’re really not that far forward from book 1. Instead of buying anymore books, I looked at books 7 through 10’s comments and decided that I was just wasting money on no progress to the proper sci-fi storyline or any storyline at that.

Review #3

Audiobook Midst Toil and Tribulation by David Weber

As the religious Jihad continues on Safehold, the war focuses on The Republic of Siddermark. The Army of God descends on that nation while the decimated and starving reformists try to hang on long enough for the Charisians to send what help they can. David Weber has never been a writer to white wash the horrors of war or fail to reveal the sacrifices and tolls that takes on a person, especially a religious war. Not a feel good book but a good read none the less.

Review #4

Audio Midst Toil and Tribulation narrated by Oliver Wyman

If you liked the rest of the series, this book is more of the same – there is a building up of advantages, in which each side’s pro/con list is fully fleshed out, followed by a deluge of morals tied to anvils. By now, it is clear to everyone that Clyntahn is at best a raging sociopath on one of his good days. I don’t feel that its necessary to expound upon his evil anymore. The book reaches its climax much like the others, where Charisian forces get to show off their new battle strategy/technology and the enemies eat lead.

At points, I found myself both entertained and at the same time curiously unable to remember what I’d just read. I literally caught myself reading the same paragraph over and over, and I wouldn’t realize it. Most of the book is needlessly wordy, the sentences strung together in complex ways. I reached the end of the book rather unexpectedly – I didn’t feel like enough had gone on, and the page number threw me off. I thought I had thirty more pages, practically a giant chapter of content left, when in fact it was merely a massive phone book sized listing of every character who ever existed on the planet for a page at a time. After a while, I found it hard to tell who was fighting who, what with names like Green Mountain and Green Valley and some stock names that were actually repeated. Often, I could only tell who was who by the fact that the good guys were usually winning (or valiantly dying, depending on the situation.) There are way, way too many characters for me to remember and care about every single one. I could probably name eight or nine protagonists, and six of the villains. The reason for the large number of characters is understandable – it lets Weber move the story from continent to continent without someone important actually being there. The end result, however, tends to lack focus.

That was the negative bit. I did like a bunch of things about the story, such as the technological progression. At the beginning of the first book, sail-power and muskets are the order of the day. Now, the world is in the throes of really kicking off the industrial era. Charis, having begun experimenting with steam power in the last book, is pushing on with its ‘heretical’ innovations. The rest of the world is busy playing catch up as Charis forces, cheating via satellite and superhuman androids most of the time, outmaneuver and annihilate forces that get in their way. The description of the technologies, as well as the processes that went into making them, are very detailed and interesting for anyone who likes that sort of history. Merlin was, and still is, a lethal killing machine who breaks up the monotony occasionally by massacring church forces. The scenario is one of my favorites – quality versus quantity, the technological advantage or the numerical one.

In conclusion, this series has its bright spots, but overall there’s a kind of gray pall over the whole thing. If you can pay attention, you’ll learn a lot about the woes of the guns that predate metal cartridges and the thin hull of the sail powered ship. If you can’t, well, you may not get that much out of the books. If you’re still buying and reading the books, you’re unlikely to complain much. If you’ve had your doubts over the last couple novels, you may want to reread them and decide if you still want to buy. Personally, no matter how many dull moments appear in the plot, I’ll keep reading just to see how it ends.

I have read all of the books in this series. The first two I fell in love with and couldn’t wait for the rest, however each consecutive book gathers more and more politics inside and outside of the church. It is too much waffling on about strategies and worn out religious rhetoric. The church is evil, we get that. I’m looking for more sic-fi and less politically based human drama. GET ON WITH IT ALREADY! Cheeses tap dancing Condoleeza friggin’ Rice let’s see the church get its butt kicked already. Man! I have had this book for a year and still haven’t finished it. I love David Weber and have read many of his books, but this series is like a hangover that won’t go away. Sadly, after reading 5 of the books in this series I am now caught between abandoning the whole thing and still wanting to see it end. Dude! Please get to the big hoo ha!
