    I started this book not expecting much more than the average pulp fiction novel. I was surprised by how engaging it was from the beginning. The characters are excellent, and their motivations are clear. The political message was incredibly poignant. More so than the usual Heinlein type dialogues. The main story conclusion was very satisfying and then it ended. Perfect.
