The obvious point of this book is to give more back story to the Halo universe. It does this fairly well. The story is even compelling which is not easy when a author is given a universe he did not create and told to write its history. It does a good job explaining the struggles that lead to the Halo's creation and use. There are still quite a few questions however that i am hoping the next two books will answer.
The characters were well differentiated until the end of the book then the main character suddenly became Scottish.
The narrator went to the William Shatner school of awkward mid-sentance pauses and suddenly becomes scottish in the last chapter of the book. Other than that the story was enjoyable for Halo fans.
