    Epub gamegeek denter.de å Armor eBook À armor ebok, Armor eBookAs I finished Armor by John Steakley this morning I laughed from the depths of me Part 1The story's divided into pieces and begins with FelixHe’s on a military starship orbiting a hostile planet called Banshee and about to be dropped into combat along with 10000 fellow warriors The invasion is similar to Normandy on D Day and we get our first glimpse of Felix in the mess hall the morning of the drop He’s a little like thisA woman vomits at the breakfast line right in front of Felix whose attitude’s one of and no fucks were given that day He climbs into his armor And it beginsThe next 80 pages are fast “Mazes” “bunkers” and “beacons” are about the most complex scenery beyond the scorching sand dunes Bleak imagery and nightmare mark the killing ground of massive ugly bugs that outnumber the warriors a thousand to one and nearly everyone diesBy the end of the book the symbolic hostility of the planet Banshee weaves a recurring theme “Remember where you are” Felix wi

    Epub gamegeek denter.de å Armor eBook À armor ebok, Armor eBookThis is a fascinating novel It is for the most part a military science fiction story Then again it’s something else entirely Steakley actually juggles two stories here both of which read like a novel in their own right However it soon becomes apparent that there is only one tale here even if it takes two to get it told The novel opens like a fairly standard MilSF novel reminiscent of Starship Troopers or The Forever War This first seuence introduces us to Felix There is a lot of momentum generated in these first chapters of the book This is important because

    Epub gamegeek denter.de å Armor eBook À armor ebok, Armor eBookAn ard scout named Felix is dropped on the planet Banshee a hostile alien world teeming with Ants When Felix's team is wiped out on their first mission only The Engine his second personality saves him Can Felix and the Engine survive the war against the Ants? And does he want to? I read about Armor on John Scalzi's blog and decided to give it a shot At first glance Steakley took the parts of Starship Troopers he liked the most power armor and aliens that resemble insects and expanded it into a novel but Armor is so much than thatArmor is the story about what war does to a person's psyche Felix deals with war by retreating and letting The Engine take control becoming a veteran and survivor of twenty combat drops Felix is used to show the absurdity of war As he becomes a veteran the people around him including the ones giving the orders grow less and less experienced The

    Epub gamegeek denter.de å Armor eBook À armor ebok, Armor eBookApril 2018 This was one of the books I added to my shelves when I first joined GR back in 2007 I'm not sure when I last read it but probably a few years before that It finally won a group read in the Sci fi and Heroic Fantasy group soWow The book is written in parts The first part is about Felix an ard soldier who is dumped into a battle blows all his fear breakers so The Engine takes over It's beautiful the way Steakley wrote this I wonder if he did time in Vietnam He's about the right age only someone who has been in a really dangerous situation for some time could understand this disconnect It happens in flashes when the adrenaline kicks in during a scary moment but this one goes on after that's gone Fear sheer terror is so overwhelming that a survival machine takes over but the emotions lurk there ready to pounce if the guard is let down The Engine has no emotions F
