by Craig Dilouie

Lawrence Dobbs and Timothy Muldoon, Colonial Marines and thorough rascals, are the last of a dying breed of adventurers in a Federation that has tamed dozens of wild planets and is increasingly becoming civilized. When an old astronaut offers to sell them a map that will take them to a legendary planet promising rivers of gold, Dobbs and Muldoon recruit a crew of misfits for one last great adventure. They soon realize they haven't just discovered gold, but the very secret of alchemy. To keep it, they just have to fight millions of hostile natives, a team of elite bounty hunters, a combat-assassin android named Bova and the emperor of a dead civilization.

I'm a Russian Occupant
I enjoyed this novel from Craig DiLouie completely. If you have read Craig's "Tooth and Nail" then I think you will enjoy this even though it's not of the zombie genre. Both are great reads. I am greatly looking forward to Craig's future writing. In the meantime I will likely go back and give both of these a reread as once I began it was difficult to put either down. For me that's the evidence of a good novel when you a while later are ready to go back and read it again. The Great Planet Robbery does owe more than a bit of credit to Kipling but it does stand on it's own as well. In both books the main characters are military and he gets the feel and sense of that right something too many authors miss or can't be bothered with. Not here though. Thanks Craig and keep them coming!
A super fun book to read. Someone needs to make this into a movie. Worth ever penny. I expect nothing less from Mr. Dilouie.
Should be called 'The Great Paying for a Book Robbery' Patehticly childish writing and plot. Trust me.
The premise of the book promises an awful lot but just fails to deliver at all.

The style of the writing failed to capture my attention and the hero's have zero death to them.

I got about two chapters in and just gave up.

A very disappointing read.
What an enjoyable romp! Travel through light years of tongue-in-cheek humor and adventure with Dobbs and Muldoon, the heroic (sort-of) colonial marines at the center of this wonderful new science fiction novel about the ultimate heist. Reminiscent of Heinlein and Harrison, DiLouie's writing makes for an easy and enjoyable read as he drops you into strange new worlds peopled by strange new creatures (where can I find my very own Crickets?) with situations that make you laugh out loud. Strongly recommend making this part of your sci-fi collection!
