  1. I only read the first four chapters After each chapter I told myself, well, maybe it will get better But I decided life is too short to slog through annoying books My primary complaint is with the heavy handed way the author telegraphs what s going to happen He was gravitating into a political black hole where the protagonists political orientations are either proven or disproven by the events in the book The author of course is free to write the events to support the desired conclusions In this [...]


  2. The book had an interesting story line but the characters were immature, and the author s take on how relationships work is just bizarre This guy is frozen in his adolescent years and has a lot of catching up to do, imo That takes most of the fun out of scifi so I won t be reading any of his work.


  3. Fun yarn that I feel falls under the theme of Robert Frost s poem Two Roads Diverged in a Yellow Wood which was mentioned during the narrative , and the choices we make in life It really has little to do with wars or the overarching themes in the book s blurbs and to do with Hunter Blake s coming of age normally a theme I shun, but in this case it was an excellent story.


  4. Interesting story, Mr Blake is a great character The whole story centers in the vicinity of Mars and nearby asteroids I enjoyed the book I ve always been a fan of Gentry Lee since his participation with Arthur C Clark in the Rama series.


  5. Could have been a good story, but just never fully came together To many side issues distracted from the core story.
