Customer Review

on 31 October 2012
The first in the series, Back in the day, I bought two of this series in paperback. After reading these I was determined to get the whole series, but alas they rapidly and inexplicably went out of print. I love this book. Satire, humour, irony, low wit, high wit, medium wit, existentialism and violence rolled into one decent story. The fist book takes you through the Hero's recruitment, investiture and indoctrination into the military to fight the 'evil' Chingers. A quick tour of the galactic capital and his first action as a fusetender and rolled together in this book. If you are looking for an in depth social commentary, deep characterisation, or any form of seriousness, go elsewhere. If you are just looking for good, light-humoured fun, then this is for you. Its not Douglas Adams funny, but pretty damn close. I look forward to reading the series and if this review encourages one other person to read the series, I wil have spent my time well.
