CERTAINLY NOT THE BEST, BUT NEVER-THE-LESS A FUN READ

I must admit to having read better SiFi, on the other hand, I have certainly read worse. The overall premise of this work is good and certainly has a lot of potential. Wars, futile wars, lasting for centuries, are not all that far fetched. The sillyness of the war here is not all that much different than some of our past wars. This work gives you something to think about. I did enjoy many of the characters in this work, although their developement could have been better at times. This is one of those works that I am glad I read, but I doubt if I will give it a second read. Recommend this one with reservations, it may not be everyones cup of tea.
