This is a very compelling narrative; as with all sci-fi, a certain suspension of disbelief is required, but he's constructed a very plausible universe.
Tefler is the author who consistently has me saying, "I did not see that coming... but I should have."
You do know that "literary" means something different from "favorite", right? Quality of form, formal writing having a marked style for particular emotional effect.
Not mass produced blockbuster entertainment.
That sorry is solid genre, both Sci FI and porn. It is in no way literary the way MelissaBaby and YouDidWhat write something compelling for real survivors of prison and veterans with PTSD. I actually find the comparison offensive. Tefler is pure self indulgence, the sole purpose is to escape reality.
Although I would pick a different universe. His is too full of girls giggling and complimenting the same guy every 100-plus chapters.
