Speculator entertains and makes you think

Great story. Very hard to put down.
The characters were all exceedingly well described and I am really in a hurry to see where the author goes with them, as the series continues.
Please don't make us wait too long Mr. Casey.
You have a great talent for describing the world that exists beneath the perceptions of those who think that reading the newspaper is the way to know what is going on in the world.

My Favorite Modern Fiction Book

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's pace was perfect and I was on the edge of my seat. It is well narrated. It is rare that I listen to a book in such a short time.

The libertarian commentary might be off putting for some but I enjoyed it and at times it was implemented in a comical way.

I don't recall learning so much from a fictional book before. I learned some things about anatomy, speculation, mining companies, and found myself googling concepts I was unfamiliar with. It is the first time I encountered the term "Gamma Male".
