I would definitely try another from Timothy Zahn, his detailed use of descriptive language really paints a vivid mental picture.
I actually laughed out loud at a couple of moments in the book.
While I enjoyed the book overall, and the performance was top-notch which, the ending felt rushed, and in my opinion didn't have as satisfying a payoff as I was hoping for after such a long albeit very good build up.I love a good heist novel, but like a good heist movie, the last quarter should be the execution. I get that there can only be so much time spent in the actual execution of the heist, but well... you can make up your own mind, I don't want to give anything away. Plus, it's a personal preference thing.
I have not read the print version.
Not to give too much away but... The last chapters being told each from the separate perspective of the two parties was very effective at keeping you invested in the moment. It would have been easy to keep the chronological order, but that would have pulled you out of each of the events.
One man pushing the limits of human endurance trying to save his crew from a certain death at the bottom of the world.
