did not like it

While "Ark Royal" was a somewhat predictable, old fashioned navies-in-space book with some bad vibes from the author leaking out, this book is sort of disgusting.

Let me give you the short version:

Every woman is a shrew. Except those who are sexy and/or submissive. Journalists are the lowest of the low. Military men are awesome. Exposition is a must. Aliens are a mistery. Dialog is clunky. Aliens will magically develop or not develop whatever ability or tactic the author needs at any given point in the story. Character development consists on assigning a characteristic to a name. This one is a former drunk. This one fucks. This one is a pilot. That one is a woman. This one nags. That other one is another woman, and what do you mean you can't tell her apart from the previous one? She has a name!

Depressingly bad, and ugly.

Will not read the rest of the series, which the author is threatening to split into another book happening at the same time as this one.
