However, I didn't expect the laughably awful writing, the lack of originality, the complete lack of any technical explanation of anything, the slight sexism that runs through the book, and all the other things that force me write this one-star review. I read the first 75% of the book in detail, then just could not take it anymore and skimmed the last 25%.
The alien Hocklyns are described as "a lizard that walked on two feet with arms and hands. They were a pale green in color with a small crest on the top of their head". Are you kidding me?

2nd major issue. This was almost as annoying as the sister. Ok, so you find this crashed spacecraft right. You find what looks to be human corpses.

Even when they meet the AI, that should have been of the first 5 questions. Its like good grief. No one even baited an eye. That was very upsetting. I was waiting and waiting and waiting for someone to make an off hand comment. NO ONE DID. Its like, did humans originate on this world and some left? Is the last 10,000 years of human history on earth a lie?Read more ›
