It is all the more relevant given the current fashion for death at a distance aka Drone Warfare. The psychological fallout the operators must deal with is a big part of the story. The current age of wars arguably manufactured to suit the protagonists economic interests also chimes with the book.
It was good but not great and is worth a read, but don't expect a connection to The Forever War.
The basic idea is a very interesting one, I thought the plot was okay and was carried forward quite well. The change of narrative viewpoint, that others have not commented on negatively, did not put me off. Character development was a somewhat weak.
I think that there was one enormous plot hole, see below, which undercut the ending by quite a bit. That left me feeling rather cheated that this had not been addressed at all.
Probably I wanted to give this 3 to 3.5 stars but it crept up to 4 stars because of the context in which I read it.

Everyone needs to have an operation to have the jack inserted. That presumably cannot be done on children whilst they are still growing and developing, so what happens to everyone from birth until, say, 18 who has all of the normal human aggressive tendencies in a pacifistic world. What if the 18 year olds don't want to be operated on?
