I love a good novella and I honestly like a good prequel too. I haven’t read the full story that is supposed to be after this, but as any good prequel should do, I’m hooked. Dean M. Cole has me hook, line, and sinker in his other series Solitude — but now he’s going to have me in two different series? How is that fair!?
I said it in my review of Solitude, Cole knows how to write and Sector 64: First Contact was no different. The main character was both likable in a Tom Cruise in Top Gun kind of way, and also in a really relatable kind of way too. He just seemed a lot like (a military version of the) “every man”.
First Contact is just that — a novel about first contact, but it felt like it was a little different. Sure there are some of the same “learn the language” and similar first contact-y type storylines in this, but because it’s such a short novella Cole didn’t have a ton of time to mess around with all the typical niceties. And sometimes you feel like you’re missing something from a story that’s shorter like this. First Contact doesn’t feel like it’s missing anything. I cannot wait to dig more into this series.
RC Bray could narrate anything and I would listen to it. He has such a great voice, especially for science fiction novels like this one. Bray is easily one of the best in the business and makes any book he adds his sultry voice to better.
Don’t really care about grammar or syntax or stuff like that for your brain misses half of that in any event, filling in the blanks automatically. However, it does help if a "typo and grammar dictator" give it a once over. :-)
The stars given, on the other hand, gives a better idea for it is per individual, not like movie reviews where one individual / or a few, rates a movie really bad yet the masses love it.
For me it is all about the feelings / ideas / fantasies / "living it" a book gives you, when you “get” into the story, it having grabbing your attention. THOSE are the best books in my opinion. The deserve the STARS.
This story takes off from the beginning and doesn't slow down. I haven't read the series that this is a prequel to, but you can believe that I will now. I am completely sucked into this world, and I need to know what happens next.
I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
