I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
And I have to say it is very well written.
I won't buy the book itself and read it completely because it is too "martial" for me. Too military.
But it is well written and so I think it would be a good read for people who like their space stories/SciFi books very military.
