it was ok

Two stars means "it was ok", and I'll give it that much.

What was interesting: the physics (muons, bosons, quarks, etc), instantaneous space travel to other places in this universe, instantaneous travel to places on Earth, the God(s) that exists in the non-space between bubbles of reality.

What was tiresome: Heroic military guys who know everything and can do anything and survive anything, and who always disparage the dirty forking hippies and tree huggers who are soooo wrong-minded and deceived. This book was an exercise in stereotypes.

What was good: Ok. Give me time, I'm still thinking. ... Ok, it moved fast, lots of cliff-hangers. The aforementioned interesting things.

Obviously John Ringo knows how to describe weaponry. I'm a little familiar with some guns, but I'm not really proud of that knowledge or impressed by others' knowledge. So it's just filler to me... I just skim it... and that makes the novel go even faster.

The ending seemed very weak. The story just sort of quit, though the heroes survived as did the Earth.
