I kept going for 5 hours (and that was a bit of a strain) but had to give up.
This book started out quite well. However, as it went on, it w..Show More »as difficult to keep track of who was who as there seemed to be so many characters. This, in itself, spoilt the book as you never really knew where you were.
I tried to persevere, but gave up in the end as I completely lost track of what it was all about, if it was about anything, that is!
I like this book for the exciting battels and surprises but comparet to other books by David Weber the people are very one dimentional in this story. ..Show More »Politicians are always and compleatly bad. Military people are always good and never makes mistakes unless they are missing information, and they are ALWAYS compleatly selfsacrificing. (I'm not exaggerating here)
If you can ignore this and just want some good space battels it is still a good book.
