    1. I read some of the other reviews on this one and I see it got a lot of good ratings There were a couple however that rated it fairly low and said things like, simplistic or no depth The main question that came to my mind at that was, who picks up a book titled Swarm Star Force 1 looking for a deep philosophical tome It s the people who had the same sort of complaint about Monster Hunter International I supposewhat did you expect We get it, you re too highbrow for the rest of us pedestrian slobsm [...]

    2. Well done The main character just has his children eviscerated by aliens For the rest of the book, he throws token remorse in their direction, but really spends most of his time trying to get into the pants of the hot curvy mostly naked restrained woman that ends up falling for him for some reason.Bonus points for all of the hot blooded Latina stereotypes I m surprised her skin color wasn t compared to food, like flan or something.I ll give a star for the tech though Yay nanos

    3. Originally posted at FanLit fantasyliteratureProfessor Kyle Riggs and his kids were asleep in their house when the alien spaceship arrived It killed the kids, kidnapped Kyle, and put him through a series of grueling tests Since he was still alive afterward, the ship made Kyle the captain This has been happening all over Earth Most of the captured humans have been killed because they couldn t make it through the rigorous tests, but all the survivors are now piloting spaceships and in the perfect [...]

    4. A Swing and a Miss Normally, when I read something with the words swarm and star force in the title, I get all warm and tingly thinking of all the hours I wiled away as a youngster swinging on my hammock reading Doc Smith I expect to be transported for a couple of hours into a world where all the right people succeed simply by being the squarest of square bricks.But what I got here was poorly written, badly plotted, sociopathic, uninteresting and much, much less There is a kind of art to writing [...]

    5. This was my first exposure to B.V Larson s writing, and I was riveted from the start I read Swarm in two sessions I just did not want to put it down until I found out how it ended.The plot is simple, much like the E.E Smith Lensman novels forces try to one up each other in a series of combat scenarios, either by tech or tactics while an alien device assists our side But the first person POV of main protagonist Kyle Riggs works marvelously to get the story to that point, as the reader is dropped [...]

    6. I think I was about ten and my kid brother must have been eight.And we wrote a story About cyborg invasion, they came from a big ship, conveniently parked on one of Jupiter s moon s with a mission to KILLLLLL A story was about 3 pages long and it had plot, character and well everything than this sad excuse of wannabe savior white boy s fapping material Series deleted from the reading list.

    7. Meh Apparently there is one intelligent person in the entire world who has to do everything himself, from computer programming sort of to weapon engineering to field combat and command to alien language analysis, if he wants to save the world from alien robots Everyone else is cannon fodder, except Sandra, the hot naked college student, who s here for sex And none of them have any personality.

    8. SWARM is a book for when you are in the mood for what they would have called in the old days, a testosterone driven read It s a book with aliens, space ships, and invasions much in keeping with the scifi classics.The story is told in first person Kyle Riggs is our protagonist and he makes a convincing computer scientist cum war hero Something along the lines of a Heinlein character a man of wit who rises to the occasion WHAT I LIKED The concept was great and interesting I particularly like how p [...]

    9. A sci fi fantasy in which a college professor meets aliens and rises to command a fleet of spaceships and nano technology super soldiers because, smart beats brawn Our hero seems to be the only intelligent man on planet Earth, forced to personally solve every problem when the planet is faced with not one but two rival alien invasions Oh, and he accidentally ends up with a hot naked college coed in bondage, too One of the many perks of commanding an all powerful alien built starship Minimal perso [...]

    10. I found this book on an Audible promotion and got intrigued, so I bought it and started to listening it right away I was not disappointed Swarm is a fast pace military science fiction, where the main plot is the human survival from a alien invasion The first point of view gave sense of reality to most of fighting scenes, and the plot was intriguing and full of additional material that kept me listening to it.The text has humor too, Kyle pulled as a good main character and survivor.The narrator d [...]

    11. Very soon into this book I thought this was going to be a three star Fast starting adventure with nasty aliens It has kind of a retro feel of a 1950 s b rate movie there is even a scene with a scantly clad damsel in distressed, that is chained to the wall But the plot is very tightly written and the story continued to flow without any disjointed sub story lines The imagination grew as did the story until a ending that was able to surprise without a major cliffhanger Recommended for pure enjoymen [...]

    12. Complete and utter garbage This book feels like a sci fi novelisation of the recent GI Joe movies Complete nonsense for the sake of cheap and fast action No character development No reasonable plot Just a description of explosions and idiotic decision making to distract the reader from the absence of the plot Nevertheless, there prominent references to other classics Rama, Terminator and War of the Worlds are some that I spotted immediately.After bashing the book generally, I will dive deeper Co [...]

    13. I picked up Swarm based soley on a recommendation and reviews on Audible and I m so glad I did This book is fantastic, fast moving, well written really well narrated if you do Audible and incredibly creative The novel starts with a bang when Kyle Riggs children are snatched up by an alien spacecraft and dropped to their deaths moments later Needless to say, Kyle is pissed and grabs a rifle he s a farmer computer science professor, so the rifle is on hand before the arm reaches down to grab him W [...]

    14. Swarm is an interesting read, quickly morphing from one sort of alien incursion story to another, I found it far from satisfying While some attempt is made to justify the technologies involved, they really are what the author needs to drive the story in the direction he wants.The ships tasked, like the one that kidnap our main character, with defending the Earth from the invading Macros seem to be ideally designed to kill their pilots and fail in their task, as they have no coherent tactics and [...]

    15. glorified fan fiction with no depth and very limited viewex a small one an entire army caught off guard with no recon or any front lines

    16. WHAT IT S ABOUTEarth arms marines with alien technology and builds its first battle fleet Kyle Riggs is snatched by an alien spacecraft sometime after midnight The ship is testing everyone it catches and murdering the weak The good news is that Kyle keeps passing tests and staying alive The bad news is the aliens who sent this ship are the nicest ones out there TAKEThe book was interesting in the beginning, heart wrenching even As things moved along and the body count increased the story also be [...]

    17. This is a big and tasty military sci fi burger Although I ve seen similar premise in Assault Troopers in the Extinction War series here the execution in much better Deducting a point due to the children subplot I just didn t like it

    18. Seeing a lot of bad reviews, I didn t know if I d like this one But while I can see the point some reviews have made, it s still a good, action packed story The narrator was good, also So I liked it a lot better than I expected to

    19. This is an easy listening, action packed military sci fi from my Audible TBR shelf Kyle Riggs is a college professor and farmer until aliens reach into his yard and capture his son As Kyle scrambles to grab a shotgun and get his daughter into the car for safety, his son s body is dropped from the sky Then the alien snake like arm breaks through the car window to snatch his daughter A few minutes later his daughter is dropped on his roof Then they grab him, and Kyle is than happy to be dragged t [...]

    20. Before I read this book I saw a review of it that someone posted that said the book had very little science in it That is exactly what I found Good science fiction to me is an extension of real science and is believable This book did not meet that test for me The story reads like some kid who had a fantasy and made up things as he went along to make a story The story has a LOT of holes, like where did the alien ships come from and why, and then where did the adversary Macro ships come from, and [...]

    21. B V Larson is one of those super prolific self publishers that are doing well on Swarm is the first book in Star Force series, and it left me massively torn On one hand, the book was entertaining It was pretty pure pulp military scifi with giant robots and space battles and souped up space marines, and the basic premise of an alien invasion works well.That was the good part The bad well, if I m buying self published scifi, I m not expecting to see massively nuanced characterizations and psycholo [...]

    22. I wanted to like this book enough to finish it I really really did For so many reasons But I was suffering I was suffering too badly to continue to suffer, after getting at least 65% through the book I love sci fi, and I love speculative stuff and I can suspend disbelief for weird or new or even scientifically inaccurate stuff, so long as it s believable within its world But so much of the human interactions here were completely unrealistic The most prominent female character was inconsistent AN [...]

    23. The book starts out like an action movie and pretty much continues like one Several times during the reading I had to stop and curse Or just lay it down in disgust Reflecting afterwards, I felt kind of dirty perhaps Swarm is a guilty pleasure of somekind But not the guilty pleasure you share easily Let s talk about the book Action Lots of it Suspension of disbelief required Off the charts No, really, I mean it sometimes you have to open your mind so wide that your brains fall out to keep going.C [...]

    24. Light but entertaining This book is what I would call Science Pulp Fiction It s pulpy, filled with action and short, you can read it in one sitting The characters are pretty thin, the women are hot with tanned legs and in constant need of rescuing, there are overwhelming odds to overcome and bad guys to kill Although most of these things would normally be pretty negative for a good book, here they re positives as long as you know what you re getting into This is a Sunday afternoon popcorn flick [...]

    25. An action oriented novel It gave me hope that if we were ever invaded by Terminator like aliens, that a computer science professor would become the savior of Earth However, I do not live on a farm and I do not own a shotgun so I most likely would have been killed by the butcher knife horns of the centaur ish species.Anyway, it was a fun read Nothing in depth or mind shattering Just a good action novel It started out very depressing when his kids were picked up by the aliens and then tossed out a [...]

    26. Look, I get it, this is sci fi and unreal shit happens BUT what should not happen is a douchebag protagonist Either that happened or there s one superbly retarded alien master race in this book Well, hello there alien species what did you say want a fuckton of human soldiers every year Sure, come next year What Who am I the unintended captain of this one man ship of course and yeah I SPEAK FOR ALL OF HUMANITY.

    27. As a stand alone scify, it wasn t that great Character development is replaced by story It is an interesting story though with interesting turns Independence Day meets Flight of the Navigator meets Space Marines The end is a note from the author that if this book gets good response, he will make a series of it Should that happen, it might be worth the read.
