Customer Reviews

Couldn't put it down until I finished reading it!
ERIC M JOHNSON
Thus one was a slow starter for me, and while it wasn't 'I can't put it down' good, if was definitely a pleasure.
Richard Allen
I really hope Michael Z Williamson writes more about the RC team.

I got my hardcopy today and have to say: Mad Mike is at it again in fine form! It's a rollicking good time on the autobahn of violence and protection, sex and professionalism, greed versus the enterprenurial spirit - it's firing on all cylinders. That's probably why I read it all in one afternoon. Having said that, I will say I was this close | | to knocking off one star. That grieves me because I am a fan, so here's why (and they're admittedly pretty shallow reasons, which is why I left it on). First, the climax was delayed a bit long, and was a heavy hit, but it seemed very short and there was no significant denoument following it. Now, I don't expect an action-adventure book to want to snuggle afterward, but I felt not only like more satisfaction could have been had, but like a lot of loose strings and unfinished business was hanging out there and not terribly well-addressed in the cold after action report. Some issues may or may not get addressed in a sequal for which there is certainly potential, so this isn't a deal breaker by any means. The second reason is, frankly, the cover. While it's certainly eye-catching and particularly in light of the juxtaposition of the title "Do Unto Others" with the amply-endowed siren with the bow, it really didn't strike me as particularly consistent with the image of the twenty-year old college student client or anything about who was doing unto whom. Besides, she looks kind of bored, slightly distorted, and not at all like she was "doing" anything nor being threatened nor being protected by anyone in the background. Mike went to the trouble of writing a kick-@ss book about a bunch of eclectic and detailed characters in a fascinating setting.Read more ›

Michael Z. Williamson is a science fiction writer in the vein of Robert Heinlein. Libertarian, contemptuous of western, liberal government. You know the type.
I don't agree with much of his political views, but admire the clear, forceful way he presents them. His latest book, "Do Unto Others" is more in the same school. It concerns the continuing adventures of a group of mercenary bodyguards introduced in "Better to Beg Forgiveness".
"The Prescot family were miners. At one time, they were contracted to develop technology for a mineral rich but uninhabitable system. Gradually, all the investors shied away. Then the Prescots broke through with the technology needed to exploit entire planets, and incidentally develop domed playgrounds for the perversely rich, including indoor ski slopes and cable cars over megavolcanos, casinos and rides. This created the economic problem of being the richest people in the universe, having more money than most governments and effectively unlimited resources.
Money is a small blessing when enemies are quite willing to spend billions for the chance at trillions. Bryan Prescot and his daughter might as well have targets painted on their backs for the thugs, kidnappers and assassins their competitors would throw at them. Bodyguards were necessary--Highly trained bodyguards who could be bought once and be utterly loyal no matter the circumstances.
The altercation comes to a head inside the domes and mines of Govannon, with their enemy desperate to do anything to save their own lives, now that the gloves are off. Caron Prescot has only six bodyguards against an army, but she has two aces in the hole: The miners are on her side, and Elke, Ripple Creek's psychotic demolition expert, has a nuke."
This is I think his weakest book to date.

This review is not so much a "review" as it is a public service announcement. All of Baen's books (Baen is the publisher in case you didn't know) are available directly from their website, in every format imaginable, all without DRM copy protection nonsense. So, feel free to buy from here, or pay six bucks directly to the publisher. As for the book itself, it's an entertaining if uninspired read. If you like military[-ish] scifi with a heavy handed dose of libertarian ethos, then great. I say "-ish", btw, because while definitely aimed at the military/space-opera crowd, Williamson doesn't harp on the military regs and customs to the degree the genre tends -- a lack I like but others will find wanting. I enjoyed Better to Beg Forgiveness more, but that's probably more because it was my first taste of "Mad Mike" than any real qualitative differences between the two novels. If you liked his first Ripple Creek adventure, Better to Beg Forgiveness..., you'll like this. If you were on the fence before, I would opt for the library on this one.

I have to agree with several of the other comments here, and I am not trying to sound harsh, but, not one of his best to date, but everybody needs to test their limit's and try new story paths. I never could however figure out the client they were guarding as she seems to morph into whatever is needed in the situation the team is in to fit that environment. Her sudden self reliance when she is kidnapped and unlikely risk taking in the face of capture and imprisonment struck me as an odd chapter in the saga. "Freehold" Williamson's first book, like L. Neal Smiths libertarian first (or near first) novels was brilliant but after two or three books Smith's books became rote, plot and dialogue copies of the older stories. I hope that is not a similar type of syndrome we are seeing here. I found myself having to force myself to read entire chapters after getting bored with long descriptor sections that a good editor could have, should have cut to about 1/5 of the ordinal volume, but then it would have been a much smaller book. Maybe he was just trying to set up the scenes but much just seemed like filler to my read. Still I confess to a strong fascination with his near apocalyptic vision of the future, mostly as a result of the "progressive" policies of the now global UN government of earth and its predicable (freedom killing) effects on mankind. In other words I share his abhorrence to the current liberal dictatorship ascendancy. My first novel "Recon of Worlds" was a novel that also sounds the alarms over a government grown malignant and corrupt. I would advise a move back to the Freehold world and re-base the series for future works. Not sorry I bought it but may use more caution on the next one.
