The Galahad, a faster-than-light spacecraft, carries 50 scientists and engineers on a mission to prepare Kepler 452b, Earth's nearest habitable neighbor at 1400 light years away. With Earth no longer habitable and the Mars colony slowly failing, they are humanity's best hope. After 10 years in a failed cryogenic bed - body asleep, mind awake - William Chanokh's torture comes to an end as the fog clears, the hatch opens, and his friend and fellow hacker, Tom, greets him...by stabbing a screwdriver into his heart. This is the first time William dies.

You’ll figure it out well in advance...

I was really disappointed. I don’t want to be overly critical; it has a lot of really interesting food for thought and fun ideas to explore. The story, however, seems to be for single, virgin, gamer types with relationship issues. I say that because the plot line and the interaction of the characters is... awkward. I soldiered through to the end (listening while clearing brush) but had correctly figured out what was going on (the reveal of the ending) long before the end- and I’m confident you will as well. It was good to go though for a couple of long drives and manual labor.

The day started like any other, but it ended with the human race fighting for its very existence.

Listened to first chapter and bailed. The narrator sounds like I imagine I might if I had to read this out loud.

Blake was never one for taking chances. He lived in a world of formulas and equations. A statistician in a controlled society where everything had become predictably mundane. That world disappeared the day the dead got up and began attacking the living. Now, the end is here. Blake finds himself fighting for his life in a world that is rapidly spiraling out of control. He struggles to keep himself alive and must risk everything to find his family.

I enjoy the zombie genre in general but for the action and adventure aspect. Scrounging for supplies, battling for survival, wariness of other survivors, etc. Not for guy wrenching "where's my family?". Also, too many times children were brought into the story- spoiler- not in a good way. So yeah- any harm to children ruins a story for me- period. Blasting zombies? Great. Shooting a child/ children or detailing them being attacked by zombies? No, no, and no. Yeah, I get it- in the fiction of the zombie apocalypse all manner of terrible things could exist- but when I explore the genre I just want the adventure part as escapist fantasy- not that level of grimness. If the author has kids of his own then I'm doubly angered. >:(
