All wars require adaptation on the part of combatants and the humans don't appear to be adapting very well.
I was fooled by the reviews and found nothing new here that hasn't been done better elsewhere. A short novel that never really manages to draw me into it. The logistics involved in supporting the military in which our protagonist joins seems to be ignored as the author tells of a USA where little or no industry remains and the crop lands lay vacant and destroyed, yet a McDonalds is operating at his base.
The first half covers his boot camp, and the second covers his introduction to, and use of, the armored suits. Boot camp seems to be there to let the reader know the author is familiar with it and that pansies need not apply.
Little exposition on the design and make up of the suits, with the science of it falling into the nano-magic area. Our young hero turns out to be god-like when it comes to the suits, which of course he decides might not be a good thing. The armored battles are brief and usually covered with 'I didn't realize how many I had killed until it was over'. By the end, our young hero was killing hundreds of the aliens in hand to gun combat.
I finished the book, but the whole thing is rushed, poorly structured, and over-priced for the length and quality.
***** I noticed two not helpful votes appeared immediately after I posted this. Please feel free to leave a comment on why it was not helpful, and others might want consider the validity of other reviews if these reviews are being watched that closely and negative reviews are being trolled as they are posted.
Read the book, it is fast paced. I will probably read the next installment. Just don't expect more anything more than a fast read, a thought provoking book this isn't.
