Comments How Dark the World Becomes

  • Clyde

    Wow! I haven't enjoyed a book so much in quite a while. How Dark The World Becomes was not what I was expecting. I thought I was going to read space opera. (It is published by Baen, after all.) What I got was a rip-snorting noir crime story, nicely spiced with spies, and gunfights, and dirty dealing, and desperate situations, and a bit of romance. Oh and there are also aliens and spaceships.Very good book; I'll be looking for more from Frank Chadwick.

  • Jeff

    Ok mini rant time (two fold). If you want to ignore the rants, just go buy the book and enjoy.Rant #1: Baen - Baen has gone from being one of my favourite publishers to one that I am very cautious about. Yes, it still has Weber, Drake, Flint and other great authors that publish under its auspices. Yet, it also publishes a number of misogynistic, xenophobic novels as well as a number of right-wing screeds that I would be embarrassed to have on my bookshelves. So, now-a-days, instead of being one [...]

    If you haven't read Frank Chadwick, here's why you might want to. "Lightning hardly ever strikes the same place twice, but when it does- well, the second time you get hit, you feel like an idiot.""Watching the emotions fighting for control on the faces of the kids in the crew - I thought of them as kids anyway - was like watching a sack full of cats: you knew there was a lot going on inside, but it was hard to make out exactly what."These pearls and proverbs are scattered throughout the first pe [...]

    4-4.5 starsPurchaed this book from Baen's eARC program.I have never read any of Frank Chadwick's works before this story but the summary and sample chapters showed that it was almost exactly the type of sci-fi books I enjoy reading. you can find the preview here. The story was very character driven with the information about the universe spread throughout the story and never weighed down with too much technical jargon.The lead character is very well thought out and has a two-part depth that I ha [...]

  • Linda

    What a good read this is! Though I'm not a regular reader of SF, I found this novel worked for me because of the very clever mix of genres. SF, Noir, Hollywood gangster, and even a little romance thrown in! What brings them all together? The wonderful voice of Sasha, the main character--a man who is honest about the brutality his life requires for survival but who when he says "a heartless thug like me" you don't quite buy it. And you're right! By the end he's risked all for the life of two chil [...]

  • John Davies

    Well, this was a surprising, and enjoyable read. While the book started out how I expected, instead of it progressing how I thought it would from the blurb on the back, it turned out to be a tale of redemption and how a good bad man can become a good good man. Along the way, it has space battles, ground battles, assassination attempts, and heroine rescuing. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

  • Cheryl Brandt

    Picked this up from Baen's eARC program because it sounded interesting.I very much enjoyed the book, both the world building and the characterization. You become very wrapped up in the main characters, but I also felt the side characters were well drawn, and became real to me.Very good read, and I'm looking forward too re from this author.

  • Stephen

    Part science fiction, part old style detective story (except he's a gangster, but it feels like those), all worth reading. It's early in the year, I know, but this is currently top of my list for next year's Hugo nominations.

  • Gregoire

    J'ai véritablement apprécié cette plongée dans cet univers futuriste dominé par les Varoki , où l'homme n'est pas l'espèce dominante, où il tente de survivre et traîne ,comme boulet, avec lui, son lot de misères, de corruptions, de crimes mais aussi de dévouements et de sacrifices Le récit à la première personne permet de suivre sans ennui les réflexions de Sasha et de mieux comprendre ses actions et réactions Le style, enlevé mais pas que (certains passages méritent que le lec [...]

  • Kelly

    Sasha is mid-level gangster involved in the usual smattering of criminal activities: drug dealing, protection and numbers. He seems like a nice guy, so far as thugs go. He funds a clinic, is good to his girlfriend and is apparently respected by his peers, except for the one who’d like to see him dead. To complicate matters, he has been asked to smuggle two high value targets off-planet. There is a thread of connection between matters, but everything in the squashed and squalid depths of Crack [...]

  • Walter Zirbes III

    As a 71 year young, retired Navy Chief, NRA member, photographer, shooter, book collector and voracious reader, I thank Frank Chadwick for this story. I have always been a fan of a Good Ending and he does a fine job in the one.A lot of what he put in this story seems to me to apply to our Country and the world right now. The crusty old sailor hopes for a "another good beginning" for the U S of A. This is the GREATEST COUNTRY and has done more for individual liberty, by being an example for the w [...]

    Sasha is a drug dealer, a killer, and a criminal. He's got a heart, sure, but he's no angel.Then the family of a high-profile alien businessman is attacked on his planet. The Varoki equivalent of a Fortune 500 CEO is killed, and his children have vanished.Less than a week later, Sasha is approached by a woman looking for passage off-planet for herself and two Varoki. At first he thinks they're the killersbut then they turn out to be the kids. Sasha's boss is gunning for him, there are people aft [...]

  • Henry Lazarus

    Frank Chadwick knows How Dark the World Becomes (trade from Baen) when on the edge of a major war. Sasha Naradnyo is a loan shark on Crack City whose parents had been lured across the galaxy with the promise of good jobs. They died when he was seven and survival meant becoming a gangster. Unfortunately his boss, Koyla, who grew up on the streets with him, has decided that Sasha is extra baggage. That’s when his girl friend sells him out and he has to kill the man sent to murder him. Then a wom [...]

  • Karen Myers

    I think this might be his first work.Really very well done with imaginative worlds and inhabitants and realistic enough politics and economics. Nicely character-focused.I had a problem with the way-too-unstoppable villain that turns up in the most improbably accurate places (I mean, what happens to the business he's running while he travels the universe looking for revenge?). And then there's the little girl companion to the main little girl, who seems to exist only to provide a (well-done) poig [...]

  • Shae Erisson

    Unlike many of the Baen books I've read, the politics were hard to track, that could have been better.But the characters and story were wonderful. For once, I truly believed in the hard-boiled private eye with the softhearted interior.My favorite part of any book is strong believable characters that stand on their own and interact with each other consistently. Frank Chadwick pulls that off well. I also enjoyed the way the main character exposed so much of his motivations as the story was told fr [...]

  • Jesse Mcconnell

    Rating it five stars for my own enjoyment of it. I can see that other people might not enjoy it as much, but it nailed my enjoyment buttons, HARD!Central characters that I latched on to, and was on pins and needles as the threats came. The world of the book was dark and tough, and the universe unfolded around them to become ever more threatening, while still being completely believable that normal people operate just perfectly in it.And then end! Aaaargh! I almost cried! The book set up the end [...]

  • Greyweather

    One of those novels where you don't want to put it down and go to bed because you just have to know what happens next.

  • Stephan

    Sam Spade (although he's not) meets Sci Fi. Not a bad novel but in the end it's just another tired and re-used plot.

  • Klever

    These are always exciting the whole way thru.

  • Alan Mills

    First volume of two volume series--great world building; great main character--low born becomes protector of high born--and great action: he changes the world. Volume two is almost as good!

  • Li

    A bit of a "Jack Reacher in space" feel to this one. A competent protagonist, but I never really connected with the characters.

  • Bill

    Well-paced police, mystery, military scifi action with a little romance thrown in.

  • Scott

    the first couple pages are confusing, and it's tempting to toss the book. don't. Get's good quickly, and moves along well until the end. Good book.

  • Sean Dobbins

    Great read!This book grabs you from the start. You grow to care for the main characters and the twists and turns keep you interested. This book flew by way to quick.
