    So is like very in depth to very shallow? Could you cite some quotes from it to compare?

    Like it jumps between cringy and cliche dialogue to actual clever, witty conversations between characters. Beyond that, the actual non-dialogue writing is fantastic. I recommend the book, just be ready for rapid changes in quality of conversation

    Best way I can describe it is that the general writing is extremely gripping and in-depth, but the dialogue rapidly alters between poor and great

    Short version is that if you’re gonna read only one Shaara novel, make it The Killer Angels by Jeff’s father Michael Shaara. It’s a modern classic imo
