Even if Heinlein and Norton are unfamiliar names for you, keep Ricket in mind. It's definitely worth a look.
So many positives and negatives have taken place, it seems like a reflective balance of good and bad or left and right is at work, somewhere, to keep existence somewhat centered.
I find it interesting to contemplate the dark side. The characters are so stimulating, and yet, I know I can't exist in that dark place, it's not where I belong or who I am, and I'm grateful for that.
Although I thought this book would focus more on the adventures of Ricket, he was still quite active and becomes himself a powerful being, probably more advanced then anyone can guess.
If your looking for a electrified ride of survival in outer space against seemingly invincible foes, start with book 1 of 7 of the Scrapyard series and read your way up to here and beyond with this new related series, Star Watch.
The fun was in watching Harry Houdini escape, not listening to him mumble how the hole in the trunk really needs to be patched and the hasp on that lock needs oiling. Ricket says it can't be explained in words and then there are 30 pages of words trying to explain it. I get limits and difficulties are required - otherwise magic tech doesn't allow for story (i.e, Star Trek invents the transporter and then 30+ episodes have to invent a reason why it can't be used).
But I don't have to like it. Nor the book...
Another enjoyable element was giving the spotlight to Ricket for a while. This enigmatic character long deserved celebrity status.
