In any case, all of the Cain stories are written as memoirs of a self-loathing hero, who is convinced he is nothing more than a craven coward. This is something of a running joke within the series, but this is a novel which has better utilised this than all others to really flesh out the setting. A resolve to be a giant among men, to conquer, plunder and seize the greatness that he thinks is his right. While it disguised this well for some time, toward start of the third trilogy these problems became much more obvious. As is par for the course, Cain yet again finds himself dragged into the thick of it while desperately trying to keep his skin intact.First there is Cain’s self-centred narrative, which reveals he’s not the hero everyone makes him out to be. Choose Your Enemies officially marks Ciaphas Cain’s becoming a long-running series, and with any long series, you have to wonder if the adventures will remain fresh and engaging after so many years. The stories themselves were far from bad - and many of Cain's most famous moments come from the second omnibus - but the magic seemed to be wearing a bit thin. However, when it gets away from that area it tends to lack the innate descriptive strengths or narrative of more conventional stories. While this might sound like hyperbole, if you compare the first three books with Death or Glory, you might notice that one is more engaging than the other.
Yet atop of everything else, Choose Your Enemies manages to sidestep a fair few of the pacing issues and structural problems inherent in the overall series.Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom. The unintentional nature of their meetings and Cain's own dialogue helps to smooth this over, as always, but the greater scope at work really plays to the story's strengths. In this story the Eldar are his first foe but it's not long before he uncovers a chaos cult on the moon and an old inquisitorial friend reappears. However, it does mean that you should not binge them, as the average reader is likely to get bored of the formula rather quickly. They make them at the dinner table, or in a meeting room, where personal history, your own unique view of the world, ego, pride, marketing, and odd incentives are scrambled together.
This is worth mentioning as, comparing Choose Your Enemies to The Greater Good highlights a sense of renewed energy behind the writing. In this controversial and exciting listen, Pollan explores caffeine’s power as the most-used drug in the world - and the only one we give to children (in soda pop) as a treat.Set as usual at an indeterminate date (but definitely pre-Dark Imperium) this sees Cain and the Valhallan 597th deployed to the ice world Drechia, bolstering the defences against eldar pirates. Not only is Stephen Perring’s Cain an absolute delight throughout, audio serves the structure brilliantly. The old chapter outro style of "If I had known X I would have Y" is present, but the creativity behind it helps it to feel engaging. Almost like a compilation album of the best bits of the series so far - a couple of the best tracks about the Tau, the Inquisition, the AdMech, the 'Nids, and Space Marines all mixed into a glorious whole. The fact it is set on such an unusual world gives the book more material to offer than were it another hive world or backwater planet, leading to some very interesting culture clashes.
No, not the slightly inferred to hanky panky between Amberley and Cain BUT the real love of Jurgen and his Melta.Bob Johansson has just sold his software company for a small fortune and is looking forward to a life of leisure. It's irritating as it seems as if the story was written with a larger page count in mind, and was then forced to wrap things up all too quickly. the footnotes are inserted as appropriate, with Vale’s interruptions, additional thoughts, and scathing remarks cutting through Cain’s self-indulgent prose to hilarious effect.
