Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This novel is very much about the American Right Wing's growing moral outrage and bunker mentality in response to an increasingly polarized American political arena. This book is very a mirror of current extreme right wing view of total rectitude, where the left can do no right and the right can do no wrong. Which is a far sight from Ringo's nuanced work in a Hymn Before battle where both sides of the political spectrum were shown to be as able of incompetence as well as of competence.

This book is very much a rant as well as one might say wishful thinking as much as someone can apply the term to a disaster novel. In spite of the horribly one-sided and obtuse viewpoint; the book in itself is very accessible and easy to read. There were a lot of times where I wondered how much better this book would have been with proper editing.

In the end, the book was very disappointing. It felt like being inside a Fox News anchor's head and its not a very pleasant place to be. In the end I only finished the book expecting something to improve. But in the end, there is very little to write home about in this novel.

Sadly this book is about par for the course since Ghost came out.
