This book takes the listener on a journey of discovery through the hull of a colony spaceship in crisis. Along the way there are many clues, but they only become meaningful as the story unfolds. This is a book you have to read (or hear) more than once, with the second journey through its unfolding world even richer than the first. Highly recommended.
I would have made it longer and given it a stronger and more definite ending.
The Narrator took the central character from a late blooming child to a confident young man using only his voice. That added a dimension that would have been harder to evoke from the printed page alone.
I was left with the feeling this book was delivered to a deadline rather than remaining in the creative oven long enough to be well baked. It is possible a sequel may have been planned but I'm afraid "the long lead-up" just didn't have a strong enough conclusion to satisfy this listener. I really do wonder if the authors became carried away with a good story and were told it was due at the printers on Thursday.
