Summary

Bill - the perfect Starship Trooper: big, brawny, and brainwashed. Possessor of two right arms (impressive when it comes to saluting) and a foot that is threatening to turn into something more suited to being an umbrella stand than anything that could be squeezed into a size 11 sneaker.

Bill - a perfect recruit for the good ship Bounty, bound for the Chinger war and carrying a cargo of as nice a company of homicidal misfits and maniacs as you could wish to meet outside of a penitentiary asylum (which is where they've just come from).

Bill, the Galactic Hero - he's back, he's bad, and he's about to meet the most hideous alien lifeform of his entire career. He'd do anything to save his skin without rocking the boat - but mutiny? On the Bounty?

Too much homocentricism

The story is extremely human centric and not only ignores the role of okra but villifies okra in coarse of the novel. Without okra the story could not take place. As a self hating human, I am offended by the blatant specism and animal centrism wantonly demonstrated by the author. Okra lives matter. They only have token black folks in the story. But at least the black folks were given a name. Okra was the nameless hero that the white cis gendered heteronotmative protagonist used as a comedic flail with which to advance the story. Story should be rewritten from the point of view of okra. Also the author should be a plant. Not one of those problematic humans

I probably should have passed on this one.
