the rogue bolo book and story has dated very badly with technology having rapidly overtaken.
the structure of the start is good for its time, with lots of different news/stories.
although keith laumers science fiction stories suspend belief in believable coincidences this seems to be up there with that.
not that great a story and the hero or rogue of the story is hard to believe in and that it is any sort of machine, even one with AI.
the book has 2 parts which are very different from each other and not that related in the story arc but show the development of where the bolo mark xxx csr (caesar) came from.
