Short, easy to read, fast paced action, and moved quickly from one event to the next without a boring pause.
Lack of sufficient character back story, felt more like one book than eight, not very descriptive behind the science mentioned, and character development was lacking in explaining the crew interactions.
Overall, I enjoyed it as a spur of the moment read, good for those that are just getting introduced to the science fiction genra.
Needless to say when you travel for thousands of years life and travel events will not run smooth and the crew of ‘Seeder’ the space ship are challenged in many ways.
It is a book which will hold your imagination but one I thought needs some extra energy put into the writing style as it reads more like a tale.
Fly away with this book and have fun enjoying how the crew handle the various challenges they face.
The book appears to be an omnibus edition of 8 previously published short stories. I guess that type of format is becoming popular enough that it is becoming more and more common. I would probably point to the Wool series as being the most popular, probably the modern archetype of this style.
The story is about a colony ship sent from an Earth that is experiencing its death throes. The colonists and crew (who not part of the colony) are put into stasis for 4,000 years while they travel to the target planet. But along the way, strange things happen. Strange things. The story has quite a number of unexpected turns and twists, it kinda felt like the author was just making it up on the fly. Well, that's what authors do, right? Normally I figure the author has an idea where the story is going, at least a broad mental outline. I didn't quite get that feeling here. It was interesting, but very erratic, some of the circumstances coming quite out of left field.
Editing was half-n-half. There are a noticeable number of missing or additional quotation marks, comma usage issues, improper capitalization ("Intel" vs. "intel", i.e., intelligence; probably an auto-correct since there is a word "Intel" that is a proper noun), and improper possessives ("aim at that alien ships gravity generator"). Nothing too terrible. It appeared that each episode was simply appended to form one single text, but the introductory text at the beginning of each chapter is unnecessary in an omnibus edition. Some editing could have easily taken out the "recap" material from each chapter start without loss of story.
At some point during reading the book, I started to think of this almost as an animated cartoon or movie (think "Heavy Metal" adult type animated movie). They're one-dimensional characters having outlandish adventures. Keeping that mindset helped me get into the mood and overlook some things which I'm not even mentioning here.
