Salt Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Salt

A very interesting debut novel. The rotating first person is nearly all between two characters representing two different societal groups which land together to colonise a planet ('Salt').
The huge divide in views and opinions eventually lead to a war, for which neither side is totally at fault.
A good book about a war with an interesting political/society based edge.
