really liked it

This series (I’m presently on the fourth book) is interesting to me. It’s billed as “vatta’s war” but it could more realistically be called “vatta’s administrative procedural”. That’s not necessarily a bad thing; wars are not just about battles. And while each book has at least a minor battle halfway through and a major battle at the 80% point, the rest of each book (thus far) has a lot of quotidian detail about buying supplies, visiting banks for lines of credit, picking out dishes and designing logos.

The thing is, I enjoy quotidian books so I am enjoying these. But I imagine a reader who thinks they’re going to get a steady diet of space pirate battles will be a bit underwhelmed.
