That computer in your head is a weapon, but it is a double-edged sword. - page 103 "War evolves over time. It's better to say, 'No one kills in this war yet.'" - page 105 "People are expendable. Period. The only difference between the nineteen fifties and today is that there are billions more of...

I really enjoyed this book. Its more or less about the near future where intergalactic war has ravaged the world. Scared of ruining the earth battles are not fought in space by modified humans called Solar combatants. Tom is just an ordinary kid with a dad with a gambling addiction who opposis the g...

12/31/14I decided to re-read Insignia before starting on the second and third books. I'm glad I did--it turns out I'd forgotten a lot more about the story than I remembered. My first review from a couple of years ago still stands. I'll just add a few additional thoughts. The science fiction is hea...

But since it was so fun to read, it went by in a flash. The only thing that reminded me of its sheer s...

Total Science Love.I'm not a fan of Science Fiction. I've always been a contemporary nerd or in same cases a total fantasy junkie. I'll be honest, the last time I read a book from a guy's perspective in the science fiction genre was...when I was in middle school. And even then I hadn't liked what I ...
