So, was this book anything like the movie? Nope. No. Not even remotely close. There are names, characters, planets and ships that are similar in names, but that is where it stops. The movie is cool in its own way, but the message this book has is utterly lost, and in some ways complete opposite. Like the societies view on enlisting civilians into armed services and so forth. But the book is good and I liked it. But it is not a action-filled story full of long detailed battles against bugs (dont be fooled by the intro), its a story about a boy becoming a man in the military and his journey up the ladder to become an officer and the commander of the Roughnecks. Cool story.
