Would you like to spend book after book reading about a character ...
on 31 March 2017
I really don't get the hype of this series. Would you like to spend book after book reading about a character being hero worshiped, every other protagonist being shallow and badly written?
Some interesting descriptions of space battles, and observations about war etc...but this is not a 'great' series. I bought the first four books to read on holiday as a good page turner, which is what I think they're good for: an average space-opera to fill the time.
Do yourself a favor: if you want futuristic suspense/politics/drama in space read Peter F Hamiltons commonwealth saga or anything sci-fi by Ian M Banks
