    Gerald Livingston is an orbital garbage collector. For a hundred years, people have been abandoning things in space, and someone has to clean it up. But there’s something spinning a little bit higher than he expects, something that isn’t on the decades’ old orbital maps. An hour after he grabs it and brings it in, rumors fill Earth’s infomesh about an "alien artifact".

    Story
    What disappointed you about Existence?

    This book could not maintain a plot. It could not maintain the characters sequential history. The fascination with the Jamaican accent had no relevants to the story. This was by far one of the worst books I have ever lessened to, and I have heard well over 2000 books.


    Has Existence turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No it hasn't but if it would have been the first one I have ever heard of it would have.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was average and good tone. It's the story which hurt the narration review.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No resuming qualities waist of time better off with Asimov.


    Any additional comments?

    Please don't waist your time this book should have been a rough draft and should have not been published. Thoughts are in-concise.

    Can man live on fast food alone? Morgan Spurlock tried to do just that. For 30 days, he ate nothing but three "squares" a day from McDonald's as part of an investigation into the effects of fast food on American health. The resulting documentary won him resounding applause and a worldwide release that broke box-office records. Audiences were captivated by Spurlock's experiment, during which he gained 25 pounds, his blood pressure skyrocketed, and his libido all but disappeared.
