This book reminded me of trying to start my lawnmower in the spring. It would putter and almost start but never quite got there. This book was the same thing. This story could have been so much better if they had cut out the filler and focused more on the aliens. Save your credit. I love this authors other books but this one falls flat on its face.

I generally like Jack McDevitt's books, but this one spent a great deal of time on politics, especially at the beginning. I'm used to more scifi in science fiction books. The second half of the book was much better. It was more like his other books.
The narrator was very good.
I found this book to be quite easy to listen too and although it isn't overly clear as to what the story is truely about i found it to be engaging and enjoyable. The characters were easy to identify with and I feel the author had a good idea of how people would truely react in the given situations. I'm not 100% sure about the narrator, thats not to say she was bad, it's just it was a tad difficult to accept the male characters from her. Still, all in all I would say this was a worthwhile listen and I would heartedly recommend it.

The first half of the book was long-winded, with not a lot happening. When the story finally got going, I had trouble being absorbed by it. Overall, a weak offering, but it did have some redeeming features towards the end.
