Also a grammar and spellcheck would have helped, indeed that alone would have got rid of the obvious problems.
That moan over it is a good yarn that gets over the gut wrench when you lose a friend, there one minute not the next. It gives a credible start and shows how the direction of a life can be changed from something as simple as being bored of waiting. In this case the hero was enlisting in one organisation but ended up in another because he had been left with no explanation for a long delay.
Written by a marine for marines it gives a good idea of the camaraderie in any service.
Cons: I wasn't interested in any of the characters. I enjoyed the first half of the book... and then it gets lost in medical centres, parades and waiting for things to happen. And when something does happen the pace is too slow and there's no sense of urgency.
A simple story of a young man who joins the Space Marines, goes through Boot Camp and into combat. The plot is simplistic but that does not make it bad and it is told with feeling and humour. The characters seem real three dimensional people, if in some cases a little strange.
This book may not be a total page turner but I enjoyed it and look forward to episode 2.

Enjoyed it, but a bit too much marine corp. in content, maybe to set the scene for the next book, but it seemed like padding..Published 20 months ago by Colin
