Overall I would have to say I enjoyed reading Freehold. It was an interesting story that focused around the main character (Kendra Parcelli) and the events that take her from her position in Logistics on Earth to a similar position on Freehold.

That being said, there were some core issues I didn't like. The main one being that the author had a tendency to ramble on, over and over, on the same thing. Several chapters were extremely similar events happening over and over with little movement in the plot-line of the story. That aside, I got tired of the 'Free Market runs everything' mentality of the storyline. As much as it would be interesting to live in a 100% Capitalistic society, its an unrealistic structure. Granted those points are personal preferences.

All in all it was an enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone who had some spare time and wasn't sure what they wanted to read.
