Let Down

Started off pretty well and I almost thought this could be another Starship Troopers. Sadly, it turned out to fall apart after the first couple of chapters. It could still have been ok, but for the tidal wave of minute detail about arms and equipment that totally swamped character development and story line. What set Heinlein's classic apart was the deep development of characters. The situations in which they found themselves simply explored their reactions to them and their growth during each challenge. In this book the hardware and the situations are the stars. If you like that, cool. Personally I like to meet and learn to like the central characters in the story. At the end of Starship Troopers I was sad to realize there was no more story. At the end of Brazee's storty, I found myself relieved to be done with it.
