This book is an absolute gem.

I checked this book out using my KU account and from the title did not expect much. Oh how wrong I was.
This book is an absolute gem. It has all the cliche story lines; a soldier on leave gets caught up in an alien invasion, the soldier fights back, the Earth is saved by another alien race, the soldier signs up to go fight the invaders for their new alien friends. Ho-hum. yawn, been there read that, but wait...suddenly totally new, never before scenes start to pop-up. You get an inkling when Barney (yes the horrible purple dinosaur from childrens TV) makes an appearance.
From there you are taken along on an hilarious ride of non-stop action, jokes, impossible situations, prison breaks, stealing a spaceship; etc; etc. All fun, fast paced and well written.Then there is Skippy....'nuf said!
Be cautious though, if you have a problem with the F word, skip this book. Same thing for anyone who cannot deal with coarse language, some gutter humor and are looking for hard science. But, for anyone that has been 21, and/or been in the military and been in situations you didn't understand, but just went with the flow, this book is for you.
Thanks for a great book Craig and for putting it on Kindle Unlimited, I probably wouldn't have read COLUMBUS DAY otherwise..
