This particular story might really only merit 3 stars, but I think the author shows some promise. Fourth star is for style and creativity.
It is a freebee and not well proofed, it rambles and ruminates but I put up with it and eventually got hooked.
The aliens are not humanoid and the spaceships are not shiny white admiralty planet busters. The hero is nothing special and the love interest can look after herself. This book writes it's own sci-fi rules, and I find that refreshing.
Douglas Adams is my default reading when I have nothing else at hand. I don't agree with other reviews comparing the styles. This has it's own brand of .... bentness.
Loads of typos... Even for a freebie. It doesn't take much to reread what you've written and that alone would have (definitely should have) got rid of most of those errors.
A few random switches during the story line where the character or the scene seems to jump from one point to the next without much in the way of explanation made it slightly hard to follow. Even with what at often times is very good writing, I do believe the author may have been typing away at three in the morning tanked up on red bull and just forgot to insert a paragraph or two that he had floating in his head. The author did state that this is only a draft and that there were errors in plenty, surely some pride in the work he is putting out, whether a draft or fully edited version, wouldn't go amiss.
However, even with having to complete thoughts of the author and sometimes his sentences while reading, it was still a very entertaining read. I did enjoy the main character a lot, he was well portrayed throughout the book. Saying that, some characters are left completely unfinished. Even if trying to create a mysterious character, you still have to make him a character by way of interaction. Some of his characters are there just to fill a fight scene and add some random thoughts without any further development. More in this case would be nice, more fulfilling for the book.
I'd definitely read it though. And if he writes anything else, I'll read that (once it's edited though, he's far too lazy otherwise). I thoroughly enjoyed his style of writing and the thoughts he has and the main character development. Would love to see this author grow into something much bigger. Good luck to him, and enjoy reading.
1 star for absolutely lazy editing. 5 stars for the concept and his style, loved it. Average - 3 stars.
