    The people of Earth now know that the human Colonial Union has kept them ignorant of the dangerous universe around them. For generations the CU had defended humanity against hostile aliens, deliberately keeping Earth an ignorant backwater and a source of military recruits. Now the CU’s secrets are known to all. Other alien races have come on the scene and formed a new alliance - an alliance against the Colonial Union. And they’ve invited the people of Earth to join them. For a shaken and betrayed Earth, the choice isn't obvious or easy.

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Human Division?

    I did not like the episode format - at all. This book lacks a smooth narrative flow on account of this gimmick.


    Any additional comments?

    After reading Old Man's War (one of the very best recent science fiction novels) and a couple of the sequels, I was expecting something similar. However, this is not in the same league. The characters are boring and their motivations, dialogue and interactions are not believable. It simply does not reflect how people actually behave.
