A re-read. I pretty much managed to forget about most of the book, except for the stasis field and the cloning aspect near the end. But it's a good read, military scifi with a twist, and seen by many as the best anti-war novel ever. Dunno about that, but still a good read.

For the whole of my life, I've been dreaming about becoming a writer. I never thought I would ever write in first-person present tense. But actually, the longest (if not the best) story I've written so far is in first-person present tense. Scary.

The first book clearly starts out as a YA, but by the end of book 6 we've partially left YA territory. Young (not so magical) boy mage flees his family and wanders the outlands, accompanied by an drawling Argosi, a squirrel cat, and hunted by all.
But boy, are these good! All 6 of 'm.

Starts with lots of sword and little sorcery, slowly moves into more sorcery then sword. Then ends in a rush.
Actually not bad, but the author was getting a little tired near the end, and decided to skip book 4.

Nou zijn er zogenaamde AMP en FASTON. De FASTIN-FASTON zijn niet perfect (je kunt met een beetje moeite (en geweld) de steker 180 graden draaien, met alle gevolgen vandien) maar voor mijn toepassing zijn ze goed genoog.
Horrible. Yet another book (series) about some Larry Stu figure, kidnapped by aliens, to become yet another soldier, sergeant, captain, general, hero, savior.
Who writes this stuff, and who reads it?

But if you are convinced the Chinese government did know, or knew more then they told the world, then that would be easy to prove.
