As for the mechanics, Jacobsen's writing is lucid and fluid, making for quite a page-turner. The characters in the novel are properly introduced, adequately developed, and their separate stories are incrementally brought together throughout the book. One by one, Jacobsen allows his readers to explore the world through the eyes of many diverse characters contributing to an overall sense of moral ambiguity when one ventures beyond the individual trees to view the convoluted forest that is the world we occupy. Additionally, Jacobsen includes an intriguing amount of symbolism and irony in the carefully selected names and numbers used throughout the narrative.
One of the more appealing themes in the novel is something resembling eternal recurrence, or the idea that human beings will continue to make the same grave mistakes.Read more ›
Incidentally, I bought this book because of the reviews. I was expecting it to be a bit of a tedious slog and hence I avoided reading it for awhile. I was wrong.
Warriors. What is their purpose? To fight? To defend? In that long ago film "The Karate Kid" Mr Miyaki asks Daniel why he studies karate. "So I don't have to fight." A Warriors purpose is to protect. So few who have not been one understand this.
A hellish planet that a megacorporation colonized only to exploit the place and the people for it's own ends. When the resources start to dry up they shift it to the write-off column. People be damned.
And when all of these come together? "No plan survives contact with the enemy" as the saying goes. In this case it makes a wonderful story written by a person who has walked the walk.
"To our friends who are still in the desert."

This is an extremely well written novel, as fine as any 'polished' novel by a major publisher. If you enjoy a great story and plot with excellent writing, I recommend this novel.Published on October 2, 2012 by J. Phillips
