Nearly everyone love's Ender's Game who reads it, this author's best known work. This book is far, far from that though. It's not sci-fi but almost immediate future and so all the completely absurd weaponry, and unbelievable military prowess is simply not credible. In fact, very little of it is believable which really ruins the story (and I like stuff from Clancy or Ludlum for example). OSC is also incredibly heavy handed with his right wing cheerleading - for example, we're meant to accept that CNN is just as crazy left-wing as Fox news is right. I don't think even Rush Limbaugh would agree with that.
The book is well read though, and you probably won't be bored, just irritated.
