Book Review – Beacon 23: Part Four: Company [Beacon 23]

5 stars. Hugh Howey dials the emotional impact all the way up for Company, the fourth part of the Beacon 23 series. Our cranky, snarky beacon operator discovers that his problems were not left behind when he came to his distant outpost. Howey nails the proper tone for his narration–sardonic, damaged, full of gallows humor, but never self-pitying. This series explores so many moral themes without ever being preachy; the author lets the reader draw his or her own conclusions.
