But there is plenty of action and plenty of gadgets, technology abounds. The characters are a little flat and do not seem to develop through the narrative but their invovlement in the issues and with each other is well portrayed, especially the women in the book. No fainting fems or damsels waiting to be rescued, although one is rescued. There is a rape scene and it is very unrealistic regarding the victim's reactions during the rape and the aftermath.
Still, it is a good read, just not the best from Niven and Pournelle
