Started a love affair with hard sci fi
- N. H.
If I knew that this really wasnt hard sci fi...
At the begining of the book we find that some bio something or the other kills people. Turns out it is alien unexplainable might as well be magic. It sucks because the rest of the book is hardish sci fi. Dont know how many chapters it takes from introducing it to finding out what it is, but it might as well be magic, and the book would be significantly better without the alien goo. In all honesty its not needed.
Several hours in one of the characters starts going insane. Hate it when characters in sci fi dont know whats real or not real, since its a story, nothing in a story is actual real. The matrix is probably the only story I can think of that pulled this off.
Furthermore once one of the characters starts a freaking second war I could no longer take the book seriously and since its kinda a serious book I just stopped listening.
I dont know but I wont listen to the rest of this series.
Honestly I couldnt tell you, there were some moments where plot came together and it was nice but nothing really jumps out
it had a good voice actor.
This author seems to think that cussing and mentioning prostitution a bunch develops character. But for me it just seemed to make the characters boorish.
