A Girl in Time by John Birmingham
"There is a technical, literary term for those who mistake the opinions and beliefs of characters in a novel for those of the author. The term is 'idiot'."
I had to keep that quote in the forefront of my mind as I read this book. The Millennial lead is one of those characters that in real life drive me nuts. The Marshall, I liked, and I sense, or at least hope, the lead will learn from his example as the series progresses. I did not enjoy this as much as I have other novels by Birmingham. That could just as easily be accounted to my own political bias as the book. He has promised more books in this series. I will read them, and hope I enjoy what follows more.
