My highest compliment is that it was A Fun Read.
After the extensive exposition which was necessary, but slightly repetitive, it was a wild ride! The imagination of the author seems boundless. He writes with clarity and humor. It was a pleasure to read about a plausible, non-dystopian future. Any violence and sexuality was implied or described without excessive detail. The conclusion connected all the plot lines beautifully. I wish the hero and heroine a quiet and peaceful life together, but I doubt that’s what Mr. Barton has in mind.
