Hawker isn't exactly likeable, but I still wanted him to be alright. Even when he puts himself in the terrible situation of being reborn again and again and again to fight wars in which he has no personal interest - for centuries, with no end in sight - the decisions that led him to that fate are understandable. This is a real person doing the best with what he's been given.
This awesome protagonist isn't the only positive in the book. The supporting characters are fully fleshed out, as is the unfolding situation of multiple lives that Hawker is forced to live through. A celebrated war hero hoping for a better future, who ends up with the same no-way-out life-after-life as convicts: his fate is bitter, and you can taste it through the pages.
The only reason I didn't give this a full five stars is that it felt a bit... rushed. There are some truly imaginative, fantastic elements that intrigued me, and I wanted to see more, learn more, experience more. Mostly, I wanted to get a better idea of how we get from here to there, and what the ramifications are. There is a short, stunted exploration of the sociology surrounding the new technologies that fuel the plot, but little else. Hawker is a prisoner of these technologies, and we are shown others who benefit from them. But it just didn't quite feel like enough.
Still, I really liked this book and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
I don't do book reports, but I really enjoyed it. Maybe not as much as SST but it was really good.
Man, I wish they would make movies about some of these books, don't you?
