Very easy to read despite all of the technical jargon, great story that I will recommend heartily. It seemed to me that the author was very precise in his facts, however the flaw in the factual integrity that I found was the mention of USC as being acronym for the Pueblo campus of Colorado State University. It is CSU-P to people who know the school or the area. Small detail but still it makes me wonder if there were not more.

I was a little worried when I started reading this book as in the Dramatis Personae at the beginning, the author lists most of the female characters as "wife of". Not a great start. Then I read some of the reviews and I knew that there was a definite religious slant to it which is definitely not my cup of tea! But I read it anyways and I did manage to finish it. The novel's female characters turned out to be on the same level of ok as the male ones (none of the characters really had depth to them - I felt that they were too two dimensional). Generally I found this novel to be too convoluted with technicalities, particularly about firearms (of which I know nothing about). I felt it really didn't have much of a plot and was a bit too "God Bless America" for me by the end.… (mais)
