DUDE BRAVO What a book What a sweet piece of science fiction.Ok, I ve been on such a sci fi run lately and have read lots of great books Now I realize that even with the best sci fi there tends to be something missing, heart awww , a good ol tug on the feels I m not bitching though, it has to be really hard to come up with a story that elicits all the various human emotions when your mostly talking about non human things space,technology,AI, etc This book seemed to brilliantly come DUDE BRAVO What a book What a sweet piece of science fiction.Ok, I ve been on such a sci fi run lately and have read lots of great books Now I realize that even

Good But not as good as I had hoped 4 of 5 Still, I have books 2 and 3 and am looking forward to them slotting them in between library books though Complicated future looking stuff mostly nano and teleportation by body destruction but not describing the how so it ended up a bit closer to fantasy.
