Invaders from the Infinite


Read by Mark Nelson

(4.4 stars; 177 reviews)

The famous scientific trio of Arcot, Wade and Morey, challenged by the most ruthless aliens in all the universes, blasted off on an intergalactic search for defenses against the invaders of Earth and all her allies. World after world was visited, secret after secret unleashed, and turned to mighty weapons of intense force--and still the Thessian enemy seemed to grow in power and ferocity. Mighty battles between huge space armadas were but skirmishes in the galactic war, as the invincible aliens savagely advanced and the Earth team hurled bolt after bolt of pure ravening energy--until it appeared that the universe itself might end in one final flare of furious torrential power....

Reviews

(5 stars)

This is a great follow up after Islands in Space. Listen to that one first so the references in this one makes sense

Great adventure

(5 stars)

I actually enjoyed the technology described. Thought it was fun to compare to what we know today. so much fun to dream big. Another great reading .

great narrator but story lacking

(3 stars)

i just recently finished The Black Star Passes, an earlier work by the same author. I found this much less inspired and the writing a little stilted..dissapointing tbh. Reader does do a great job, though.

Well read but was more of a textbook on math and physics than an entertaining story.

(2 stars)

Too Much Technobabble

(2.5 stars)

Mark Nelson delivers his usual top-notch narrations, but your enjoyment of the story itself may depend on your interest in physics and technology, as almost 66% of the story is devoted to explaining just that.

(3 stars)

The reader is great but the story is awful. Take out all made-up science babble and other unnecessary wordage and this could have been a decent short story.

(5 stars)

Decent story, can be a bit dry with all the in-depth scientific details which shows the books age but that is fully made up for with the rest of the story. Extremely well read, in fact I listened to the second and this the third mostly because of how good of a job the reader does.

superb

(5 stars)

it's a great book and really good narration, a must read series make sure to look up the author on librivox by the different author spellings below to hear the series what of it thats on librivox --- in addition its rather annoying that : "John W. Campbell", "John Wood jr Campbell", and "John Wood Campbell jr" are all listed as different authors in librivox and they really aren't as far as i can tell since all the books/stories are set in the same world and or series and theme this really does need correction.....
