    I have mixed emotions about this book. I am a fan of Larry Niven because of his use of hard science with outlandish characters and situations. I have never read a book strictly by Pournelle so I don't know who provide which influences in this story. First it is an ode to all the old hippies who have seen better days/5(31).
