Were you surprised, following on from the last book, that Juan Carrillo and his crew were persona non grata? Why?
no, not surprised. The Oregon had disregarded direct orders from Overholt and the President re the base in Antarctica. Had things gone wrong or appeared to have been directed by the US, there could have been serious consequences.
It came as a surprise to me. I'd have thought the American government would have been grateful for Cabrillo et al diverting an international incident.
I wasn't surprised since they did disregard a direct order from the top. You can't keep a group on after they do that.
No...he was in trouble over the attack on the Antarctica base and so was the guy that he reports to. I'm surprised that he would go out on a mission with no government backup. Guess they need the money.
I wasn't surprised n once sense - he did go against what he had been told, but they still had plausible deniability and the mission was a success so thought it would have been swept under the carpet.
>5 Carol420: Clearly they need the money, and have little option but to go out on their own.
