Top critical review
Sorry but I really didn't like this.

This review contains spoilers please do not continue if you want to read them
It seems to me that Laurence is running out of ideas here.
So we are talking a woman now who is 24 years old
Has a Nobel Prize for Physics
10 gold Medals from the Olympic games
A multi billionare
Has the Congressional Medal of Honor
Has 2 Medals of Freedom
Credited for the introduction of Earth Altering Technology
Credited for stopping a War between America and China
Credited for Saving the World from a Comet
Yet still is told she is completely underestimated by her opponents and especially by elements of the scientific community.
So in this book the new President before being elected swore at someone with a different opinion than her that was picked up and filmed yet somehow was elected ?
The last time something similar to that was the British General Elections when then Prime minister forgot he was wearing a microphone and said something slightly nasty against an old lady (not swore at by the way) that lost him the election.
Who for reasons not fully explained takes a personal dislike to Ell (although I can agree her policy has some merit that the technology introduced is happening too fast) she decides she doesn't like her
Who a president who imprisons her without trial
A president who surrounds herself with idiots
Now I like a good sci fi novel, I have the previous 8 books after all, but this one just seems to me a book where Laurence has run out of Plot ideas. Ell is no longer a little girl an no politician would risk losing so much public opinion, at the least not how the new President did it.
I really hope these book improve but I'm starting to think they have run there course.
