Very much enjoyed this book. Engaging from the start; it kept me hooked until the end. 4.5 stars - a wee bit off for a bit of melodrama from a female officer that I wasn't sure was entirely plausible. But otherwise great fun.
it took a whole but being a part of Cole building his ships personnel and then being the Lone Marine of the universes made for a very interesting read. I particularly liked that he defended the underdogs and didn't like bullies.
An incredible story that is as amusing as it is intriguing. I could see my son playing the lead role in a movie based on this story. Haha! It would be a great movie because it is a great story. Well-written and with everything fabulously done, including wonderful characters. I highly recommend this story. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
