2.0 out of 5 stars I forced myself to the last page, 26 Jun. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Armor (Mass Market Paperback)
I must admit that I was fooled by all the great reviews on this story when I purchased this book. I found it to be a fraud on Heinlein's ST, overall. I especially disliked the whole Jack Crow tangent. It's funny, when I hit the beginning of the JC bit, I thought the Felix story was over and a new one was beginning. This book should not be placed on the same plane as Starship Troopers or Ender's Game because 1. it did not break new ground nor install a twist on an old story, 2. the dual storyline wasn't convincingly cohesive in the end because it was so predictable and 3. characters were not developed enough for the reader to **identify** with the protagonists.
Steakly, I say to you, as a TV book, it is ok; as a piece of science fiction literature, it is not. Come up with your own ideas in your next book.
