While the general science that Weber puts into his books often makes my head hurt, I have to give him credit for the ‘Space Opera’ style story. He does a good job of pulling you into the story and connecting with at least one of the characters if not more. He is also good at developing characters into something more than they were when the story started.
Crusade is a story focusing on the strange dichotomy that is the Human Race and how it can affect those around us. It also goes a long way in showing why it is a good idea to leave cultures alone until they are developed enough to be able to interact with us on a even footing.
All in all I would recommend this book to others, as long as you can get around the science inaccuracies.
