Well, I was reading a non-fiction book, and, as I am wont to do, I had to take a break. Luckily, I found an old David Drake book at the store on Monday called "Patriots," first published in 1996. It is a story based on the Green Mountain Boys of the Revolutionary period of American History, but set... IN SPACE!!!!
It was a very quick read, and not too exceptional. Cheap entertainment. Not a whole lot of character development or universe building, but it was fun to try and figure out who in the story represented who in history.
If you happen to run across it at a used bookstore, grab it, but I wouldn't recommend paying full price.
I give it 6.5 out of 10. Or two thumbs sideways, but slanted slightly upward. Or whatever.
