This is an educational book that puts the various aspects of government great depression programs and regulations into perspective that wasn't covered in any detail during my school years. As you read, it's somewhat scary as many of today's political overtures are along the same lines of what was tried in the great depression era. I only gave this book a three star rating as much of the same main points were rpeated even though the author breaks out each aspect of government focus. I would suggest the abridged version hoping it reduces the amount of this repetition.
I had never heard of this author and while on a job which required some travel, chose it for the length of the book. Character definition takes the majority of the book, but it is interwined with various plot lines that will leave you looking forward to the nex book. Fortunately, there are a few more written to look forward to. The story reveals the multiple aspects of human nature in a futuristic setting of multiple humanoid races interacting with each other. Of course an action taken after discovering an alien technology leads to the uncovering of consequences the majority of us would never fathom based on our limited knowledge.
The time flew by listening to this book, and I was ready to find the next book in the series. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in science fiction and enjoys a series leading to some conclusion that will keep you looking for excuses to listen. If you enjoyed reading a series such as the "Left Behind" books spread out over a number of years, you may enjoy this author's Saga of the Seven Suns.
