To my friends that enjoy Doctor Who, this will be a blast. If your first Doctor was the fourth Doctor when Adams was writing episodes, you'll enjoy this presentation.
Well, the doctor always tidies up in the end but there is a twist to this tale that you ay or may not see coming. Read carefully
She did fine. I especially enjoyed her dramatization of the ships computer. Varying tempo and pitch I had no trouble following her rendition.
Shada: What's a life sentence to a timelord?
This book is a lot like I remember the show. Roberts did a great job taking Adams unpublished script and turning it into a narrative.
I've had that feeling, perhaps you have too. This is a great read for anyone who has loved the TV sci-fi genre. Why do the low ranking members of the away team likely not to return?
This is Andrew Dahl's slow realization after receiving his prestigious assignment to the xenobiology lab aboard the Universal Union's flagship the Intrepid.
First every away mission involves a confrontation that turns lethal. Second, the captain, first officer and other high ranking members of the command crew always survive and third, one low ranking crew member is always killed.
A great deal of energy is expended below decks to avoid being chosen for away missions. This is largely managed by one crewman who has managed to make himself invisible on board ship.
Not necessarily one I would sit through in one sitting, you certainly could. I usually always enjoy Wil Wheaton's performances.
There are 3 "codas" at the end that wrap up some loose ends and shows some alternate perspective to the events that transpire. A satisfying read all around.
Smart Science Fiction
I thought this story was unique in its approach to humanities expansion into the universe. If I were to make a parallel I would point to Arthur C Clark. It is a smart kind of science fiction.
Lee is a competent narrator and pleasant to listen to.
I found it made me consider some of the sciences involved how relativity works and some of the possibilities in the realm of longevity.
Being an astrophysicist comes through in Reynolds writing, hence the smart fiction.
No. but it's nice being read to!
Wade was easy to be sympathetic towards.
The OASIS itself was an awesome concept. But moving across the surface of the polished corporate world was, in my mind, a cool scene.
A book you will read twice!
