  "The book makes the reader think on many levels; discussion helps bring up ideas others may not have considered." by kylan (see profile) 03/05/08

This is the type of story that creates a realistic scenario and follows a sequence of believable events. The book is scary from a psychological standpoint. It makes the reader sit back and wonder how much is too much in regards to the government. On a personal level, it made me stop and wonder how certain circumstances influence life-changing decisions.

 
  "Brings up a lot of good points. A good book for clubs" by ellentambo (see profile) 08/30/08

Probably a good choice this year with the military conflict in Iraq, and an election year. Brings up a lot of good questions, and things to discuss. Sometimes hard to follow with a lot of military jargon, and some of the battle sequences were tedious with too much dialogue to tell what was going on.

 
  "really made me think" by beckylord (see profile) 08/30/08

A military perspective on the gray areas in politics.

 
  "Ok, not super. Sometimes difficult to read" by mcdotreader (see profile) 09/04/08

This seemed to be poorly edited--like some typesetting mistakes, etc. Story was pretty good, a little laborous in the telling of it. Great idea/plot and probably would generate some good discussion at a club.
