a coming of age in space story
this books ranks in the top 10 percent as far as books that I have read
my favorite character is pip the reason why is I have a hard time identifying with the main character Ishmael but Pip is me in many ways. this is a coming of age story and the struggles this secondary character goes through are the same types of struggles I would have,. pip also has my sense of humor and reacts to problems in the same way I would react.
Jeffery kafer does a good job. I have listened to before reading The empires Corp series by Christopher gnutella.
I first listened to this book six years ago. the author had released it free on the internet and actually read the book himself. I am excited to see it on audible and in print because it truly is science fiction of a different type and does not fit the stereotypical science fiction story, there is no climatic battle or life changing story in fact you will spend most the story waiting for the story to start unable to put it down because the book begs you to continue reading till you get to the end and realize you want to hear more of this authors work.
