Publisher's Summary

Building a spaceship that uses Nicola Tesla's revolutionary space drive is only the beginning. From a new industrial revolution to the brink of global war, restless humanity presses onward, eventually to the first contact with an alien species.
There will be changes...if we survive.
Fans of Carl Sagan, Arthur C. Clarke, and Jerry Pournelle will love this hard-SF series.

Please record the rest of this series

What did you love best about The Ship?

Narration; character development

What other book might you compare The Ship to and why?

The Silver Ships (and the rest of that series).
Because while being si-fi, it still provides a slim hope for the future.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Would you consider the audio edition of The Ship to be better than the print version?

I doubt I would have made it through the printed version. Great beginning and reasonably fast pace for the first few chapters. After that is simply plods along making very little progress then after around 10 hours it seems like the writer realized he needed to end it and wrapped it all up in a fast and somewhat confusing finale.

What was most disappointing about Jack L. Knapp’s story?

Twice as long as it needed to be.

What about Tom Lennon’s performance did you like?

I liked his voice. Easy to listen to. Only thing that allowed me to stay with it until the end.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
