    Gerald Livingston is an orbital garbage collector. For a hundred years, people have been abandoning things in space, and someone has to clean it up. But there’s something spinning a little bit higher than he expects, something that isn’t on the decades’ old orbital maps. An hour after he grabs it and brings it in, rumors fill Earth’s infomesh about an "alien artifact".

    A. Massey says: "Big ideas, good science fiction, frustrating style"
    "Worst sci-fi EVER!"

    Story
    What disappointed you about Existence?

    Very frustrating, there is no real story just going around placing characters without meaning. I am 34 years old, I think I read about thirty sci-fi books in my life and this is the worst. Hard to describe my experience with this book: frustration, confusion and disappointment.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Pandora's Star by Peter F. Hamilton


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    Don't know


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Existence?

    I think this book has a good idea and probably somebody can write a good book. But David Brin has a horrible style of writing. I would delete the entire book.


    Any additional comments?

    No.
