1.0 out of 5 stars Someone should be shot., December 4, 2013
I have one of these, and one of the similar Briggs and Stratton cans as well...Just throw the pour spout away and buy a funnel. It's the worst thing I have ever seen. How is it possible to screw up a pour funnel so badly?

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh, April 4, 2011
The characterization was beyond weak; we are consistently *told* that characters are heartless badasses, but this is directly contradicted by their actions. The prose is occasionally hilarious ("he burst into the room in a tidal wave of masculinity..." Wow. I mean...Wow.), and consistently purple.

Fight scenes are good. Hints of more interesting characters on the horizon. But I didn't enjoy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dulllllll., April 4, 2011
I'll start by assuming that most of you aren't first time readers, either of David Weber in general, or the Safehold books in particular.

Armageddon reef was pretty tight. It had a defined plot arc, a decent amount of action, and a solid climax.

Schism...not as tight. Not as much action. Lot of back and forth between minor characters.

Heresies...More back and forth. More and more minor characters. Less action.

Fortress follows this trend. It's nearly 1,000 pages long, and you go 200 pages before the first person dies. Minor characters are introduced, and they get vast amounts of time in print. Perspective shifts every two pages, and it shifts so broadly that the headers which are meant to tell you who the next two pages are about blur together, leaving you adrift until three sections later when one of the half-dozen characters who are actually important to the story brings you back in.

I've read a lot of David Weber. This is by far his sloppiest, most unfocused, and dullest book. Nothing happens! The church gets more repressive, Charis solidifies its hold over Corisande, there is a big naval battle (which turns into a massive slugfest for no satisfactorily explained reason). The end. And that story, that tiny story, took 1000 pages to relate.
