Another boring part - especially in the third book - is the relationship between the two main characters (male and female). They will always say the same things to each other and at one point, I started skimming those passages too.
The problems I mention are not too apparent in the first book which I would rate at 3 stars.
The first book is noticeable more energetic and interesting, but as the history progresses it slows down to become boring in the last book. The main faults for me are poor character development (the insistent sex scenes of the couple that is the two main characters do not contribute anything to the book other than wasted reading time) and simplistic plot narrative (too-easy-to-read science fiction and too slow or too fast development).
On the other hand, I liked the overall idea the story is based on and the author at least offers some technical justifications for the main technologies shown.
Unfortunately the end is the last nail. It occurs completely unexpected leaving the reader to just imagine it. Looks like the author intended to culminate it in a fourth book but was just too tired to materialize it.
I hope everyone else will give this author a chance, he has it going on. Thank you for a wonderful experience Mr. McCollum and please keep writing. :)
My one caveat to the authors writing is the tendency of his novels to end by sort of staring soulfully off into the sunset into the distant future........ Towards the real conclusion of the novel!
Those open endings are great for finally curtailing a book that has to stop somewhere, but as all of the previous reviewers have noted, after what amounts to three novel buildup, it all concludes with a sort of wistful cliffhanger that makes you go "W-wait! What the heck happens! How does it end!"
The best I can liken it to is the end of the Empire strikes Back, with Han and Leia staring out at the galaxy while the Millenium Falcon soars away. Imagine if the story ended there.
As I said, it really was a great rid. It's just seems to me that the car ran out of gas with the finish line almost in sight.
