This is written in the style of a play, (which I haven't read since my school days) but I found it easy to comprehend, and it served to set the scene for the characters nicely with no jarring point of view switching.
The story itself is standard and has been written before, but is well written and being told in dialogue between the characters and short scene descriptions makes it somewhat refreshing.
Spots the Space Marine, though, raises the bar, with a heroine whose all too human frailty just makes her bravery more admirable. She's married with kids, she's religious and she won't see twenty-one again. Her spiritual quest is to reconcile all that with kicking alien ass.
The story is split into bitesize chunks ideal for Kindle reading, with a poetry all their own. The style is almost filmic, with lots of dialogue and stage direction-like description. A read you can power through at a sitting, then return to for all the little details you missed.
Haven't enjoyed a book by an author previously unknown to me so much for a long time. For a bibliophile the style it's presented in may be a little strange at first unless you're used to reading scripts for plays etc....
It's just a shame that a company called Games Workshop is trying to suppress this book, claiming copyright of the term Space Marine, seems a little odd when my better half says he's read books written 40 or 50 years ago that use that term!
