I've read many sci-fi but this beats them all. The basic idea is great and I really loved how he made us humans out has an abnormality. The characters are good( even if Will sometimes seems a bit naive), the plot well writen and there simply isn't anything wrong with this book. A must for all fans of ADF and a good place to start if you haven't read anything he's writen.
p.s. This was the first book I ever read by Alan Dean Foster and he as since become my favorite writer.

A Call To Arms is a great opener for the most underrated trilogy in Science-Fiction literature. The characters are very well-developed and it really sets the stage for A False Mirror. I've never read a more enjoyable, fast-moving, exciting book. Once again, Alan Dean Foster has outdone himself in the likes of Quozl and Glory Lane.

This was the 1st alan dean foster (ADF) book i read and i went on to read a fair few more. this novel basically introduced me to written science-fiction so its one of my favourites. re-reading it (for me at least) is like taking out a fictional comfort blanket made of science.

The story takes place on an epic scale which is well realised and envisioned by ADF. when i buy a book with scale to it i like to feel small and a call to arms made me feel tiny at times. the writing lets the reader imagine vast, grand things in their own individual way which is a plus for me.

In this story humans are often portrayed in a flattering and shocking way. its more shocking for the realism contained along side the unreal. also, the fact that we are evolutionary and socially unusual (compared to the aliens) leads to some very interesting ideas and developments.

ADF's imagination has come up with some cool technologies and concepts which greatly enrich the experience of reading this novel. and even better the technology doesn't weigh the story down as often happens with sci-fi.

there's also the fact that this is but the first novel of a trilogy. it sets up the following two well. combined they are form a high quality series well worth reading.

Realistic and amazing battles, highly emotional moments, stunning ideas, well developed characters and a fluent, consistent writing style combine to make a great read. i would recommend this to anyone who likes science-fiction and even to those less sure of their tastes.

I was looking for a sequel when I wrote this. A good yarn about human nastyness and combat capablity being put to use on one side in a galactic conflict.
