Just Read “Oath of Fealty”

Oath of Fealty by Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle

Over the weekend I was traveling and had some time. Wandered into the local book store in the airport and found a book by Both Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle called “Oath of Fealty”. I have always been a fan of both authors and have met them several times when I was much younger and attended sci-fi conventions. Looking at the back the paragraph summary interested me. More interesting was a Chicago Sun-Times quote about how the books demands being read in one sitting.

Well I started the book on the flight back even skipping some prime podcast watching. Then I found I couldn’t stop reading the book. The story is incredible and captivating keeping me up till very late hours just trying to finish one more chapter before setting the book down. While the book covers interesting ideas about society and a possible near future of single building cities, it also does a great job of telling a good story. It’s been a while since I read either of these two authors and this was a great book that any fan of more realistic Sci-Fi would really enjoy.
