This was an excellent read. I have seen reviews that praise it as the greatest scifi post-apocalypse, alien invasion genre and others that revile it for its shallowness and supposed link to Scientology. I don't know about Scientology or greatest book ever, but this was an excellent read. The book is well paced. The characters are not very well developed but it is an action book--I don't expect great character development. So if you want a fun read that will take awhile (1000 pages), enjoy this one.
