The artifact is found seven miles below the surface of the sea and beneath 40 more feet of sand. The Navy's efforts to raise a wrecked submarine uncover it - and set in motion a scientific race to retrieve it, to discover just what it is and where it came from. Denser than any substance known to man, it has broken every drill bit they've tried on it and will not budge an inch. It resists every effort to breach it - or communicate with it.

Better than The Forever War

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-21-10

I liked this book very much, more than The Forever War. Other reviewers are correct: there is sexual content. Parents giving the book a poor review are revealing their inability to be responsible adults themselves by relying on Audible to tell them what is good for their kids. The sexual issues are not the focus of the book; the main character lives many lives, and therefore experiences many things - including murder. The narrator has a great voice. Joe Haldeman is amazing. Science fiction written for adults, and I am in the target audience. If you want something else, I suggest going to your local library to the "youth" section, and familiarize yourself with authors that are more appropriate for your young ones.
