Notes: Science fiction, how I love thee.
While not a book I would have selected were I at a library or bookstore, I selected this one out of the list of books available for review because I’d heard a lot about it, and I’d just finished reading The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers and was definitely in the mood for more of the same. I’d hoped this was similar, and while it’s a good book, I don’t think the two quite match up.
This was a slow burner of a read for me. Science fiction is either super fun and fast paced (see listed book above, as well as The Expanse series, as well as several others) or ridiculously slow and heavy paced with SCIENCE! And while I like science just fine, sometimes there’s lots of paragraphs that explain how things are, and so on. I’m pleased to say that this wasn’t one of those books, and while it wasn’t as fun as The Long Way it was still pretty entertaining to read!
I’m behind on reviews, so I’m posting this late, but overall I really did enjoy this book. It was fun, lots of characters and action and drama. Not sure I’m going to go out and buy a copy, but perhaps one day if I have space/money/time I might.
Overall, I’m giving this a 4/5 stars!
Until next time,
-Pass Me That Book
