The story was actually quite good and I enjoyed it. That being said, if this book was a movie, the continuity director would have been fired. There are so many errors, mistakes, etc in the book that I was hard pressed to listen to the whole thing. However I persevered and it was probably worth it.
The author tosses around military and astronomical buzzwards in a flashy, yet for the most part, inappropriate way. I don't believe he has had much experience in either field and certainly didn't do any research.
The use of units is inconsistent, 'meters' in one paragrapgh followed by 'feet' in the next. The timing, speeds and distances are often inconsistant and if you do the math often wrong. In some chapters one of the characters is a major in other chapters he is a colonel.
If you can ignore all of the obvious mistakes and inconsistencies then it's an entertaining story. No thanks to whoever did the proofreading.
That's becoming less and less likely.
It's a very interesting premise with a good story line
It was so, so.
Another good story ruined by amateurish writing. As in the first book of this series the author continues to make basic mistakes in continuity, mathamatics and nomenclature. As a former military aviator I was appalled by the improper use of military jargon. Every time I heard the narrator say "Roger, Wilco" I wanted to scream. All that being said, the blame cannot be laid entirely on the author, though his lack of proper research was certainly a large contributor to the novel's shortcomings. Most of the blame goes to the publisher who, for some unknown reason, failed to do even the barest of editing and proofing of the contents. The novel could have been much improved had they done their job.
