The first 100 plus pages of this book is a right wing rant on the health care debate and the alleged foibles of the political left. There is then a decent military campaign type novel in the middle and a rant at the end.

Ringo does excellent work when paired with another such as David Weber. He can do very good work on his own but this book, sadly, was not one of them.

I really enjoyed this book. Maybe I am a right wing red neck, but John Ringo makes so many points that are bang on that it really highlights how divorced from reality many outspoken left wing commentators are. The blog style narrative is fun once you get used to it. Anyway, I bought the book and liked it so much I bought the audiobook as well.

This is the best military fiction I've ever read. I do not know if others have attempted a retelling of the Anabasis, the greatest military adventure of all time, but I doubt it could be done better. Tremendous action and very well framed psychologically. Epic outcomes. Funny as hell in places. It is a soldier's fantasy perfectly realized. Some reviewers complain about the political diatribes. I don't; I agree with their sentiments entirely, but, aside from that, they serve the necessary narrative purpose of laying out a historical situation in which something as improbable as a modern-day Anabasis could occur. And they succeed perfectly. I can't recommend the book to liberals; they long ago lost any insight into or sympathy for the military mind, and a guy like Bandit 6, the hero of the tale, is beyond them. But I hope the rest of you won't miss this.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Great science fiction invites the reader to think about the great moral and ethical quandaries of our time in the context of a mythical, futuristic or apocalyptic backdrop.

The Last Centurion is not great science fiction... nor is it middling action adventure... it is a bad episode of fox and friends masquerading as a novel, a pathetic collection of Hannity rants wrapped up in the addled bumbling of Limbaugh and the america right or wrong frothing of Dobbs... it is laughably stupid.

Here is the formula for the novel, and I am sorry I am not kidding:

1)Take any political issue...
2)Ask yourself what Rush/Hannity/O'Reilly/Dobbs would say...
3)That answer saves people from the plague!

Then:

1) Take the same political issue
2) Ask yourself what Clinton, Obama, or any educated person would say
3) That answer kills millions of stupid liberal elites from the plague

Sprinkle in a heavy dose of sexist male chauvinism, poorly concealed racism, open ethnocentrism and ignorant bigotry and repeat.

For example:
Health care - private for profit health care saves people from the plague... socialized medicine kills people from the plague

Christian charity saves people from the plague... Government incompetence kills people from the plague

Immigration - illegal chinese and mexican immigrants bring the plague to america... an america that should have known better and is being punished for not building fences

Sexual orientation - homosexuality kills people from the plague... good christian morals saves people from the plague

Farming - organic farming kills lazy stupid hippies...
