A short action triller set in the near future moon. Complete with settlements through the solar system. A simple three hour tour goes a bit wrong....and they are not stuck on an island with Gilligan. The story would make a great fast paced action movie...sort of a posidon adventure, a very fun read.
Overall the text is great medication to get up and get moving. The only portion of the book I did not understand is why like so many authors I have experienced lately they have to stray from such good content into political or off topic distractions. I really do not understand the relationship of a transgender advocate on a fantastic text about our societal change towards the sedentary? AUTHORS STOP THINKING you have to solve everything at once and stick to your fantastic core topic.
Listening to stories like this is not just about learning who did what in a tale. It is about learning how to find good in what happens no matter how dark. It is about looking beyond where you are and seeing hope. I look forward to the next epic from Sanderson. Great writing, plot development, action, and ending to s story.
an interesting take on what alien species and intelligences could be like. Not all "we are always better" or "we will always win" so, it is a bit sobering in it's approach to telling a tale.
Obama's vs Clinton's, I am not sure which would like/hate this book more. Hillary is portrayed as a pawn of Bill, and Barack is shown as one who is managed by no names. eh...interesting read non-the-less.
I have read many books about WWII and this book was very direct in reminding us how personal every "global conflict" is. no war is only between countries or ideologies, it is between people, and affects people. This book was very moving for me as my God-Mother is from Dresden and has many times made comments that this helps bring perspective to. Thank you K Lowe.
A little longer than the book really needed to be. Plus, it seemed to be channeling RR Martin in the number of storylines in the book, that lacked conclusion in book one. While I appreciate authors want to make money by publishing books, please as good as the writing in this book is, it should have concluded more of the story lines, vs, making the reader wait for book two.
The whole Event group series is like an Indian Jones or W13. The plot and pace are enough to keep you moving, subtle humor, and enough freedom to let your mind wander from reality. Which I think is part of the allure of Sci-Fi, enough reality to connect, enough lack of reality to make you wonder.
A great look at what do we value, and what do we use to determine senescence. Hoses and power grids are not necessary for civilization of intelligence.
When the characters realized they were...well...characters in a story.
A really fun look at how "campy" '60s science fiction really was. The whole red-shirt joke from Star Trek put in context of the characters that well...wore the redshirts.
Many others who have reviewed this book I think miss the point. This was not meant to be a rewrite of Homer's Odyssey, the book of Kells or anything else...it was meant to be an adventure in fantasy and science fiction with a current setting. I enjoyed the books and the general escape from reality it offered.
