    PDF Michael Flynn µ µ Firestar eBook µ firestar book, Firestar eBookI am going to comment on this book from a libertarian's standpoint And actually I am going to comment on the entire series sans spoilers The reason is because some of my views regarding this book are certainly expanded by my view of all four books And my comment is this fantasticIf you have libertarian or even objectivist leanings I am uite certain you will enjoy the journey And if you do not have those leanings the story does not push political propaganda down your throat so I still say you will enjoy it I am not even sure what his personal political leanings are Heck he is just a good writerWhat a wonderful story of a woman's uest to confront her own fears and protect her planet A story of long range planning A story of the people who believe in her vision and the people who do not And finally a story of the challengesUnlike Ayn Rand's archetype characters that are so perfect and so focused or so flawed an

    PDF Michael Flynn µ µ Firestar eBook µ firestar book, Firestar eBookReally good book It was very well written although the prose may be a little dense or descriptive for some people I thought the plot was very good though it is slow moving There are a lot of characters to keep track of although I think Flynn does a good job of developing them All in all a very good read but it just lacks that extra something to make it a 5 star I look forward to reading of Flynn's work

    PDF Michael Flynn µ µ Firestar eBook µ firestar book, Firestar eBookWell here's to the first book of 2017Firestar is a book that has a very very impressive scope There are a few key characters but also many many secondary characters who are also important and get their own viewpoint chapters and many of these characters interact with each other over the span of several years What's there's everything from an impressive array of near future realistic sci fi to minor tangents into economics domestic politics geopolitics and a variety of other issues It's an excellent setup for a fully realized worldI just have to ask is anything going to actually happen in it?Don't get me wrong lots of stuff is going on The novel revolves around one woman's semi rational fear that the Earth will get smacked by an asteroid leading her to try to single handedly jumpstart a global space age The fac

    PDF Michael Flynn µ µ Firestar eBook µ firestar book, Firestar eBookLots of popular reviews here compare this book to Atlas Shrugged but I respectfully suggest that it's been a while since they have read Ayn Rand Rand's works preach her philosophy of Objectivism or to over summarize the virtues of selfishness The protagonist of this novel is a successful driven female capitalist and that's where the parallels will end Government agencies will serve as foils at some points but competing businessmen and other elites are the main antagonists Instead of the main characters acting selfishly and finding true happiness Firestar has a many real world conseuences for every action taken In many ways this makes the characters less preachy and plastic and much human Even the antagonists have reasonable motivations and the shades of gray between the black and white will leave much to ponder on and weigh A major theme I leave this book with is the true cost of pursuing large dreams and how to properly meas
