One of her better one new ideals
Liked them all.
Give the Retrieval Artist series a great place to go.
I like mostly fantasy - Robert Jordan, Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs, etc.
This story picks up after the Anniversary Day bombing. miles Flint works with his old partner on solving the bombing. Good twists & the story gives hints of who was involved but the book ends abruptly without solving the crime. This makes the 2nd or 3rd book on this crime without resolution. The author is a good sci-fi mystery writer but I liked these short stories because they were just that - short stories. Good book but beware
I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry. I also love to listen to the same whilst not paying attention to other things. I aim for my reviews to be short and succinct so that they are easy to read.
These are detective stories in space. No great strain on the brain matter and some gaping holes in the plot. I felt that I made a mistake buying the entire set after the first one thinking that the author was going to build on that story. She didn't really, The characters continue on with a series of detective stories that are not especially thrilling. I listened to them all and cannot say that I was inspired, but I enjoyed them for what they were, fairly bland. I wish we had 1/2 stars, these books only deserve three and half, the four is misleading but three would have been too low.
This is one of my favorite audiobook series. Rusch is an expert at weaving a science fiction story. I love every character in these books. It's one of those that I don't mind that she switches points of view constantly. And I always want more when the books are over. I highly recommend the Retrieval Artist series to anybody that loves good science fiction. Also, Jay Snyder is the perfect narrator for this series.
The book is an easy read -- it takes you and moves you forward with ease and entertainment. Many issues are relevant to earthly experience: relationships between men and women, daughters and fathers, etc. Some ideas revealed in the book are interesting to think about and some sounded silly (that is why 4 starts -- actually I would put even 3.5 stars, if there was such grade), but nevertheless it is a good read engaging in a thought with a pleasant aftertaste and feeling that you have gained some useful experience.
