bookshelves: science-fiction
Read in January, 1996

I had this one written down on a little piece of paper I keep in my wallet after reading a gushing review at another website. For months I kept an eye open for it until finally it had been re-issued as a classic.
It was OK but I'd hardly call it a classic. It does have its moments. While battle scenes begin to bore me after 10 pages, I have to admit these ones were pretty intense. And, yeah, the armor was pretty wild.
And, yeah, I did begin to feel for the poor guy. Damn, the more I think about it, the more I start to like it.
So why was I so anxious to finish it and move on to something else? I guess Steakley's prose just doesn't quite click with me.
