The Protagonist, Carl, is easy to like and Proctor's development of this character was outstanding. That isn't to say he doesn't have some flaws, but don't we all?
World building in the book was simple, yet creative, and completely believable and easy to understand, and therefore very satisfying. Some sci-fi books have you lost in the minutiae and checking back to review what was what...did not experience that at all.
Space travel was fun. I particularly enjoyed the role of AI in the novel.
It's science fiction with realistic human interactions and dilemmas. Underlying is a life lesson that makes the ending very satisfying.
Nice work, Mr. Proctor!
The story follows how Carl deals with a major loss in his life and whether or not he will make the ‘right’ choice when faced with the facts. The story is paced just right with sufficient action, dialogue and twists to keep the reader engaged. The characters are genuine, allowing the reader to become attached…you want to see what will happen to them as the story progresses.
As I read the story, I felt I was going to be disappointed in the ending, but with a few keystrokes, the author threw in a twist that changed my preception of how it would end. I was satisfied with the outcome, although I felt the ending was sort of abrupt. All in all, I felt this was a well written book and would recommend it to any Science Fiction fans out there.
Exceptional work and I look forward to book 2!
The storyline was written in such a way as to give you a 360 degree experience of the world and the people in it, bad or good. You would think that kind of writing would kill the suspense, but it does the exact opposite. Jim gives you just enough of a view behind enemy lines to get the gist of what's going on and a taste of the baddies attitude without giving up too much. As a whole I'd say very well done.
And, I must add how much I love the cover.
I'd like to see Carl have another adventure, the ending makes it perhaps unlikely, but he's a pretty resourceful guy so I wouldn't put it past him. An excellent fast-paced story from a new author, very much worth a read!
