The first 89 pages are great, stop reading after then.,

This review is from: Armor (Mass Market Paperback)
A lot of people reviewed this book with a comparison to Starship Troopers. I wonder if these folk read on to page 90-412 where the story bogs down into a morass of unremarkable, uninteresting writing. I found myself skipping several pages only to pick up the story without difficulty later on. It's almost as if this started as a short story then was expanded to a book at some publisher's request. This book seems to have only a quick flash of greatness that quickly disappears into predictable, stick with great books like the Forever War, Starship Troopers and the Hammer's Slammer's early series, they're great books that I read over and over. Get this one from your local library, read the first 89 pages then the last 2 chapters, that'll give you the best reading experience.
