I don't typically listen to audiobooks more than once, but I would consider it.
When Tom realizes the nature of the "incursion," what his capabilities are, and just who he is about to meet there for the first time.
Why is it that lately, it seems the best sci-fi stories are showing up in the YA category? Maybe I'm just a kid at heart, and something about the struggle to find your place in the world and prove yourself still appeals to me more than reading about characters who already have it all figured out.
Insignia is a smart, funny, imaginative read. It takes place in a quasi-believable future, but I mean that in the best possible sense. Though the technology and the theory of war that drive the story seems far-fetched, suspension of disbelief is easy to reach, and from there on out the story is compelling in the universe where it exists.
As with all of the most enjoyable books, it is the fact that Kincaid takes the time to flesh out her characters and make them real, relatable, and interesting that really rivet you to the narrative. The cast of principle characters is fantastic, including some of the villains. I look forward to seeing how they all grow and develop over the coming books.
This year I've been reading a lot of debut novelists, and based on the quality of work I'm seeing, I couldn't be more excited about the future of science fiction. It's a great time to be a fan.
