But Mayne offers some respite for his lonely lighthouse worker with some fine action, interesting (and quite funny) alien visitors and a past love interest that prevents the story from being all about the loneliness in space. Also enjoyable are the space politics in play here and an impending war that he just might be able to prevent. Maybe.
It's really a fun read, folks. Recommended.
If you love very fast-paced wall-to-wall action with some tech stuff, and a sort-of ordinary guy placed into a heroic position, this book should be right in your wheelhouse. Of course, you shouldn't expect much realism or clear explanations for most of the behaviors and plot twists and jumps. And the hero is apparently harder to kill than Superman or Dracula. This book is about the action and the hero. If you like both of these, you'll love this book.
I can't wait to read "Orbital" and other works by Andrew Mayne.
The pace of the second half of the book was much better. Characters started to develop. The spots when suspension of disbelief was needed had enough support to do so.
I didn't know what to expect with this book. I discovered it to be a fabulous, fast-paced, spy thriller in space. Part of the charm of this book is that we see the action from the perspective of first time astronaut David Dixon. If David doesn't know what is going on, then we the readers don't either! He takes the classic rule of Sci Fi - take a bad situation and make it worse - to the next level. The pace is unrelenting, yet never once goes too far or too fast.
