    2057. Humanity has raised exploiting the solar system to an art form. Bella Lind and the crew of her nuclear-powered ship, the Rockhopper, push ice. They mine comets. And they're good at it. The Rockhopper is nearing the end of its current mission cycle, and everyone is desperate for some much-needed R & R, when startling news arrives from Saturn: Janus, one of Saturn's ice moons, has inexplicably left its natural orbit and is now heading out of the solar system at high speed.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Alastair Reynolds and/or John Lee?

    This book was so mediocre that I will try to stay away from these authors' other works. Strange how the story just skip major parts of the story arc.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The advanced hardware and aliens was the most interesting aspect, yet the author didn't really go into much detail.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    This story was mostly just a bad soap opera featuring two women who dislike each other. The enmity just doesn't make sense with the characters and the situation.


    Do you think Pushing Ice needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I would not be at all interested in Any follow-up book.
