Someone who is looking for more of a drama with almost no science, technology, or futuristic fantasy.
Something from my library that I enjoyed... I usually fall back to something good after I listen to a dud.
The voice actor didn't do accents very well and there wasn't a lot of differentiation between one person and the next. It made it challenging to identify with the characters
The few technical props used by the author dated this book back to the 70's. People living on the moon faxing information back to Earth.. that kind of thing. There are many books written even before this one that are relavant well past 40 years later because there was a forward imagining of future technology in the book.
Some of the book was written from the Moon, and even though the author did recognize that the moon has far less gravity, his characters didn't seem to get it. There's a fight scene (one of the very few action sequences in the book) where the reduction in gravity wasn't taken into account. Even in the 70's it was well known that gravity is less on the moon, right?
All things considered, based on the afterward, I really liked the author. He seemed to have written this book early in his professional career, and I can't help but wonder if later books might be a little more science (or at lest accurate science) and a little less drama. Having said that, I don't think I can stomach another one like this to find out if book five is better.
