I am captivated by the science and knowledge that is presented in the novels but disappointed at the obvious political message. As an evil right-wing, apathetic, capitalist, I suppose that I should just stop buying the books. I probably will not do this. I just wanted to take a moment to complain about what I feel is the biggest fault in an otherwise interesting series of novels.
