This book is like a milky way.
Let me explain.
After reading 'Wool' (which I enjoyed hugely) I was after something that skipped along, was fun and exciting. Not too heavy but a decent read, a page turner that didn't take itself too seriously. (i.e. NOT Dan Brown.)
Storm Front, the first in a series, is well written, jam packed and hugely entertaining. I smiled, huffed (ironically) and laughed a number of times as Jim tortured his poor protagonist into yet another painful cliffhanger.
In other words, perfect fodder you can eat between heavier books without ruining your appetite.
