I listened to this when it first came out and am revisiting it again as book 3 has just been released. I am pretty sure I have reviewed it before, but here goes anyway.
It's awesome, the whole thing from the story to the production of the audio book are done so well that if you fail to at least appreciate that about it, then I feel there is no hope for humanity after all!! (only kidding)
I am sure this is not for everyone, for me it’s been a very large gulp of breathable very fresh air! Heart warmimg and even more heart breaking in parts (ok yes I cried) The whole story, that has been masterfully constructed by way of files (thus the title ) which are in the form of personal accounts, messages, recordings and investigations, is just brilliant. This is basically a story of the tragically horrifying disaster that starts at an illegal mining colony that is caused by corrupt corporate greed what follows is the lengths they will go to cover up the deed . As the story continues the ripple effect of the situation unfolds in all it's vile glory. Book 2 continues the story from another place in the galaxy that unfortunately becomes an unwilling part of the plot to cover up the facts, again it's also a great listen. I highly recommend reading or listening to them back to back if possible as it gives you the best experience of the complexity and quality of these books.
Jay Kristoff is a particularly great writer and if you enjoy sci-fi /fantasy then I would also highly recommend the Nevernight books.
I hope you enjoy this sci-fi series as much as I did............I just wonder when this will become a movie or three??
