Fascinating book. I'm more interested in following politics now!
A really interesting and well written book. I'd be curious to hear what a parent had to say about it. It's violent but not graphic. Still, I'm not sure I would have been allowed to read a book (even a Newbury book) that started with a triple murder.
My friend Mei-Yi, who recommended this to me, have a very good review of this book: "...I think it shares many of its best sensibilities with 'Star Trek II': veterans returning to the forefront, passing along wisdom to younger characters and showing that sacrifice can be noble. Dan Dare's humility, kindness and sense of justice, especially in his low-key, British stiff upper lip manner in the face of overwhelming odds particularly affected me and appealed to me. I think Ennis and Erskine deserve a lot of credit for pulling off this depiction of Dan Dare who is heroic yet still believable as a human being without his character seeming anachronistic or satirical. I love Dare's understated manner in final two pages."
This is one I've reread multiple times. One of the best anti-war books ever, and it does so without any warfare in the book. Heartbreaking and thought provoking, and I really enjoyed reading about the characters’ lives. Takes place in Australia after a nuclear bomb goes off that effects most of the world.
