I had forgotten what a self-centered jerk the main character, Fullin, could be, and some other details, but the basic idea behind the story is still very striking. It was also fun to look at the map and figure out that the real-life area Tober Cove is based on is not far from where I grew up in Michigan.
The writing is better than I remembered, but what I like most about this book is that it just makes you THINK. It makes you think about how we justify prejudices, how we rationalize not following rules, and besides the obvious physical attributes, what really differentiates men and women? The book itself doesn't go into serious depth, but unless you're that rare reader who doesn't imagine being in the story, wondering, what would I do? how would I feel?, this book will challenge you.
While it exists as part of the larger League of Peoples series, this could easily be read as a standalone novel.
I will note that the Open Road Media ebook, just like Expendable before it, suffers from the ebook having been scanned from a physical copy. Many scanning errors were left in the book, with the worst ones being ones that even an automatic spellcheck would have cleaned up, like "3ther" instead of "other" and "Doit" instead of a character named "Dorr." There are 20+ of these and each one is a distraction from the story. My contacts with the author and Open Road Media regarding the ebook errors for Expendable received no response, so I won't bother this time.
A note about the Kindle edition: unlike the first book, this book has many OCR/editing/spelling issues. I've seen far worse, so this really wasn't that bad. But, it's something to note.
And, finally, the seven books currently in Gardner's League of Peoples series are:
1. Expendable (League of Peoples)
2. Commitment Hour (League of Peoples)
3. Vigilant (League of Peoples)
4. Hunted (League of Peoples)
5. Ascending (League of Peoples)
6. Trapped (League of Peoples)
7. Radiant (League of Peoples)
After the first book (which takes place in a challenging off-planet environment), the second book (Commitment Hour) at first seemed disappointing, in that it appeared to relate only how civilization on "Old Earth", that is, the one we live on now, is pathetic and primitive in 2550 or so. Trust the author to make it all very interesting and thought-provoking before long. I will not give away the plot, but toward the end, I found the book profoundly thought-provoking and quite as futuristic as volumes one and three (I'm still getting to the others). The fact that the book sneaks up on the reader with all of this rich content is one of his clear strengths.
For anyone who likes futuristic novels with great characters, I recommend this book, as well as the series.
