A.M.C takes on some typical conflicts within the pages. Man against himself - very well done as men struggle to overcome their own fears, anger and personal agendas for a greater good. Man against man - Men are placed in the same confines on a single mission that in a normal day's work would never co-exist. The typical conflicts of such a tight and sudden enmeshment were well written. Man against nature - Boy nature packed quite the punch. And of course, man against extra-terrestrial. I loved watching these interweave as the story played out.
The only thing I found disturbing or distracting about this novel is that all the conversations were in italics. I could only read for short periods of time due to the cognitive dissonance this created though it got better as I made my way through the novel.
I also found it interesting that there were few women. Man is in trouble if there aren't a few more women left on Earth. Where were the women marines?
The book is also badly written from a reader's perspective. It's too long. The narrative voice is clunky and stilted. The author takes way too many words to describe things. He repeats himself. He uses obvious British idioms that don't fit on American and alien characters. There are plot holes.
However, the story is epic and sprawling. In the first couple of chapters Earth is overrun by aliens and the guy who you thought was going to be the main character dies. The author knows how to hit the ground running. The fight scenes are fun. The ending is predictable but leaves you hanging on a cliff.
The violence in this book is the most graphic I've read, and the language is profane. But the sexual content barely registers.
