Though "Rockets' Red Glare" was originally published in 1988 the story holds its own today. Admittedly, it does not do as well as some novels today in one specific area - techo - as back then no one had an iPhone or a tablet or even e-mail, but there is good, solid technology, some of which is very much around today.

At first, the book was really boring but by the end of it all, the pieces of the puzzle clicked in the right places that made me appreciate the last chapter.

Just when I was about to stop reading it, I'm glad that I still tried to finish it. I can never really judge a book by its first chapter but by its last.
