The Seafort Saga, Book Four. Praise for the novels of david feintuch. Feintuch’s book, depicting a stellar navy of exacting brutality and devotion to duty, possesses much the same flavor as C. S. Forester’s Hornblower novels. Hornblower fans will probably toast Feintuch in their wardrooms. The Washington Post Book World on Midshipman’s Hope.

Scoreboard Bleeding
"Fisherman's Hope (The Seafort Saga: Book IV)" by David Feintuch is the final book in Hope Nation science fiction adventure series. This series is not for everybody because the narrative is intense, dark, and depressing, but for me personally it ranks as one of my all time favorites. David Feintuch's writing style, pacing, incredible knack for developing realistic characters and storyline backdrops are totally immersive, you will find yourself becoming one with Seafort, the leading protagonist. The action is breathtaking and frenetic, the realism frightening and unnerving, the ability to stop reading impossible!<br/><br/>This storyline is one of the finest depictions of human frailty and foibles that I've ever read, the life and times of Nicholas Seafort forms an emotional link with the reader and will remain embedded in their minds for many years. His discipline, heroism, bravado, loyalty, shortcomings, and sacrifices made on behalf of the human community are compelling societal attributes that you will recognize and appreciate. IMHO this series is a timeless modern day classic, epic in scope, from a master storyteller. 5 stars!!!!!

I fell in love with first book almost instantly. Then, when I was reading the second I thought it is not as good as the first... (first part of Challenger's Hope (The Seafort Saga Book 2) is TERRIBLE, I was so happy I didn’t bought all books at once, just the second one at the time!) until it became as good or maybe even better at some aspects as the Midshipman's Hope (The Seafort Saga Book 1). Then, reading third I was like “cool, but not as good as the first two”... until it proved its merit. Fourth one was nice from the beginning but... yeah, not as good an the first three... until the last part. The last part chewed me, spitted me, and left me begging for more and begging anything like this never ever happen to me again-in the same time. I literally panicked reading the last part and I feel dirty I was part of something so horrid, and yet I am filled with sorrow it ended - this is how close Nicholas Seafort became to me, and “close” is the keyword. I do not like him, yet I love him and without agreeing with him I've made his choices, because distance between narrator and reader is becoming smaller and smaller and in the end we were both in shock and suddenly we were both distanced from the horrid truth. I am now in the state between reading hangover and catharsis and the pain is... the pain is good, because, oh, Lord God, I do deserve it.

ps. It's not for everyone, this series. If you feel the need to like main character - leave it.

Not your typical SF hero. His angst at his status as hero reminds me of my Silver Star winner relative. Thought it was just luck and never understood why people would do anything different or think it was special. Seafort is developed as a real warrior not a "John Wayne" stereotype. His problem of how to treat cadets is a classic problem. Like the Honor series of Weber it based on a 19th century version of Navy regs moved into space. The most difficult to believe aspect was that corporal punishment would still be in use in space. Other then this complaint I enjoyed the authors characters very much, sorry I hadn't run into this series sooner and have ordered the rest of the "saga"

Totally agree with some reviewers relative to the hero's whining and mental self-flaggelation; the repetitious issues were really tiring; the man knows he has some severe emotional problems but he just goes forward with same ole same ole. I finished the book, ignoring the issues that were bothersome, but the last 50 or so pages kept my eyes glued to the book, but no spoilers here. I was absolutely astounded that the author was so liberal with the use of corporal punishment, particularly with the use of caning in the Air Force Academy; can't believe that an extreme attitude about "spare the rod & spoil the child" would be resurrrected in an advanced, sane world.

Entertaining but I liked the first books much better. This one just gets a little too out there for me. I’ll still read the next one though.

A page turner with a unlikely self-flagellating hero who worships a God who surely can't forgive him for his self-proclaimed guilts. As he plows through an uncompromising life making decisions that causes early deaths of cadets in his charge he manages to save the Earth at the cost of his soul.

I must say that by this point in the Seafort Saga, Seafort's whining is just getting to be too much. Admitedly, he has reason to whine - he is the most improbably unlucky man in the universe. Everything that can be dumped onto him is, and by the time I was done this volume, I had had quite enough. Once again Seafort behaves badly to save the day - for the third book in a row (though his "damning" behaviour in Challeger's Hope is really just a problem in his own head, IMHO).
So while this one was not a favorite, the series is still worth sticking with - Voices of Hope is very good, and has far less of Nick Seafort in it, and none of his guilt-ridden internal dialogue.
Wow, I could not stop reading this last 'novel. I thought the author did an excellent job on the book. The series was well thought out. I would recommend this series as a must rrad
