Good story but....

I really liked the storyline but wish there had been more character building more insight on what the characters felt, thought, & where they came from. Although Admiral Abson is the main character, I really didn't know him. I did not feel connected to the characters. I really liked the Spooky & Rick characters & wish I could've had just a little back story on them. By the end of the book there is the beginning of a great story. There is a good set up for what's going on, a sense of the technology, and the enemy Meme's. Maybe the author is holding back a little in order to have something for the next book?

The narration was pretty good as most all of Mr. Boyett's presentations are.

I'm gonna try the next book. I hope I get to know these characters better.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
