    The Chaplain's War doc õ Audible Audio ´ brad r torgersen The Chaplain's WarChaplain’s War showcases excellent story telling by Brad R Torgerson that feels overall like good old SF in the style of Heinlein’s Starship troopers Despite the title there is little about faith and spiritualism it certainly does not drive the story It does however give it a bit of extra flavorAs my prior comparison with starship troopers already hints at this is about an all out war between humans and a species that how else could it be of bug like creaturesThe plot contains two narratives of the protagonist that are freuently shifted in time between past and present The flow of both narratives feels natural and kept me interested throughout One minor complaint I

    The Chaplain's War doc õ Audible Audio ´ brad r torgersen The Chaplain's WarThe Chaplain's War is military science fiction but it's not jingoistic The Chaplain's War is spiritual in places but it's not preachy This is a book that takes a great idea and really runs with itTorgersen gives the reader everything that's good about military SF but he does so with resonance and meaning I found the Chaplain's War to be a solid bildungsroman we follow a new recruit through basic training discovering the horror of war and all of that stuff but this is where any similarity to

  • Ron

    The Chaplain's War doc õ Audible Audio ´ brad r torgersen The Chaplain's WarSuperficially this book is an expansion of a short story from Torgersen’s Lights in the Deep Collection But there’s nothing superficial about this storyModern science fiction suffers a surfeit of super heroic protagonists who are smarter faster and luckier than everyone else Torgersen’s Harrison Barlow isn’t In fact he thinks he’s a coward a loser and unualified to be a Chaplain’s Assistant because he doesn’t believe God exists or cares what happens to him view spoilerMaybe he’s wrong On several counts hide spoiler

    The Chaplain's War doc õ Audible Audio ´ brad r torgersen The Chaplain's WarI received an early copy of this book through NetGalley The Chaplain's War is based on Torgerson's short story The Chaplain's Assistant that was published in Analog in September 2011 It's an excellent story and one that I remember well years later The book uses that story at the start and builds it from there creating a frightening scenario where humanity is in danger of annihilation by aliens That sounds like a stale trope but Torgersen makes it bright and fascinating by utilizing the viewpoint of an enlisted chaplain's assistant an agnostic at that as he copes with curious alien bugs who have no concept of religion god or soul I think the best

    The Chaplain's War doc õ Audible Audio ´ brad r torgersen The Chaplain's WarWow Upon first glance this somewhat inevitably reminded me of Starship Troopers mainly because of the enemy and Basic Training but there the similarity ends This is a reality which SF doesn't normally cover one where humans are weak and one where we're losing It opens on a planet called Purgatory where Harry Barlow a humble chaplain's assistant maintains a multidenominational chapel He doesn't have any faith of his own never preaches a sermon just creates a uiet space where people can come to reflect and seek their own answers His short chaplain training which involved comforting the wounded and the dying during drills hasn't prepared him for this but then nothing couldA line of communication suddenly opens up and his life and future change in unfathomable wa

    The Chaplain's War doc õ Audible Audio ´ brad r torgersen The Chaplain's WarI received an advanced copy from Net Galley for purposed of review The opinions often jaded expressed are my ownOne of the best surprises in a book I've had all year I went in expecting to be moderately amused I left a die hard fan Torgersen writes in a style reminiscent of Orson Scott Card at times At other times there is a ‘pulp’ feeling to it that thrills The writing is easy without being turgid or pretentious Loved it Well done
