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.

I made it 45 minutes in and had to give up. I couldn't pay attention to the story at all. it just sounds like this guy thought he was cast in a 50's detective movie. no idea if the story is any good

A worldwide diaspora has left a quarter of a million people at the foot of a space station. Cultures collide in real life and virtual reality. The city is literally a weed, its growth left unchecked. Life is cheap, and data is cheaper. When Boris Chong returns to Tel Aviv from Mars, much has changed. Boris' ex-lover is raising a strangely familiar child who can tap in to the datastream of a mind with the touch of a finger. His cousin is infatuated with a robotnik - a damaged cyborg soldier who might as well be begging for parts.

I seriously have no idea if this book is any good. they narration is so annoying I cannot focus on the story at all, but what I did catch seemed pretty bad. why does every other sentence end with the crescendo of a 1950's radio broadcast climax. it is simply unbearable and makes it impossible appreciate the story. I sincerely want a refund because there is no possible way I can finish this story, unless possibly you release it with another narrator
