My biggest passion is reading. My favorite genre is science fiction, but I'll read just about anything if it's well-written


COBRA - Timothy Zahn Please vote on list Best Timothy Zahn Novels.Another really good sci-fi read from Timothy Zahn. This book is a little different from his later books in that there isn't a mystery throughout the book that is revealed at the end with a twist. The events in Cobra center around the life of main character Jonny Moreau. It covers around 30 years. We start with him before he becomes a Cobra then go through his training, his military career, and his political career. The character are likeable and realistic, although they could have used a bit more development. Zahn's worldbuilding is good and he manages to explain the technology and history of the Dominion of Man in a natural way. Zahn's prose is written very well also. Recommend to all science fiction fans.
