This has to be the poorest ADF book I've ever read. Set in the commonwealth the background is familiar but the book wanders without going anywhere. You find out in "Flinx Transcendant" - an excellent novel well up to ADF's normal standards -that the 3 Characters left alive at the end of Quoforma are rescued so no mystery if there is a sequel.
The Black and decker strimmer is a good piece of equipment, a comfortable weight and size to use. My only concern is that the dual feed cord system appears, after the first few strimming sessions, to consume a lot more strimmer cord than the old style single feed strimmer
