    Three years ago, an object 100 miles across was spotted on a trajectory for Earth's sun. Now, its journey is almost over. As it approaches, two competing manned vehicles race through almost half a million kilometers of space to reach it first. But when they both arrive on the entity, they learn that it has been sent toward Earth for a reason. An intelligent race is desperately attempting to communicate with our primitive species. And the message is: Help us.

    Good character based sci-fi

    The character development and dialog was good I thought. The narrator's spin on the various voices helped personify them as well.

    When it first appeared, the astronomers named the asteroid Keanu. A Near Earth Object, from a distant constellation, it was headed directly toward our sun. But when we went to meet it, it turned out to be far more than a huge rock hurtling through space...

    A fun story with a few problems

    I would... with a few disclaimers. It is a fun story if you are more into characters interacting with each other vs. action and/or realism.
