Farside Cannon is not an overly inspiring title to me.
However, I really enjoyed this book.

Political intrigue, people screwing each other over for their own gains.
Different factions with common goals or opposite goals, miscommunications and misunderstandings.
A comedy of errors with different parties attempting to save the world and instead sabotaging each other's efforts until tragedy looks inevitable.

Couldn't put this book down towards the end. I'll have to look up some more Roger MacBride Allen in the future. Good real characters and very easy reading.… (more)

A very improbable storyline (given the roles of the characters) and some mild dialog. But, still fun to read again. The family dynamic also made it a little more interesting. I need to see if I can find the second book somewhere to continue reading.

Not a ton going on. A bunch of exposition and some action sequences but little character development. Still fit the bill for a easy read and fun to revisit after reading it as a kid.
