8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By John D. Angus on May 9 2010
Format: Hardcover
Coming in just under 700 pages, there's a lot of room for action and progress in this, the fourth book in Weber's series. Unfortunately, A Mighty Fortress has fallen prey to the same problems as other Weber books of late - far too much detail about far too many things and far too many people we don't need to or want to know about. As a consequence, the book plods in many places. The action scenes are few and far between, and the pace of the movement of the story slows to a crawl.

At the end of the book we're no closer to the resolution of the story than we were at the beginning. That's not a terrible thing if the book is a fun read, as most of Weber's Harrington, Hradani and Gentry series were (though not the last few books). But I can't honestly say there's much fun or entertainment to be had in this book.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By David Johnston on June 15 2010
Format: Hardcover
Weber continues to churn out page after page of stuff that simply doesn't matter to his story. There are a couple of interesting developments but nothing that requires 700 pages to recount. The technological advantages that Weber has given to the good guys are so gigantic that there's a general lack of suspense. The superior numbers of the bad guy merely serve to explain why they aren't instantly defeated.

Format: Hardcover
in the first book of the series (Off Armageddon Reef) the author captured my attention with an interesting idea and characters. But too many people now know Nimue's origins and get to use her technology in this fourth book. As well there is two much detail about how the forbidden technology and battle detail (which I always skim). I would borrow this book it's not a keeper.

The pace that David Weber has kept in all the books written by him is amazing, He has come a long way from his Honor Harrington days/series and has matured beautifully as writer as has his series of books.

This book is like old wine, a distillation of old technology, new technology being introduces and the empire of Charis getting the chance to enter the mainland to fight against the church

Loved this book, Must read for Science Fiction lovers and fans of David Weber's style of writing.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Interesting to observe the direction that the series is taking, moving away largely from its (tenuous) Arthurian links to focus more strongly upon a political context that recalls that of our own world during the Reformation and Industrial Revolution. Deeds of heroism and villainy, exciting battles on sea and land, and the conflict between ideologies keep the reader deeply engaged.
