As an old Trekkie & big fan of Wm. Shatner, I could not help but LOVE this book...as well as the narration! The plot is somewhat Trekkie-ish sci-fi, but much more intelligent & complicated (that's no offence to Star Trek...just a bit different). The hero of the story, the head of Zero G on the space station in this story, makes me think of Shatner himself...the same sense of humor & possibly around the same age, & with the gutsy, assertive, smart-assed, flirty, & brave character of James T. Kirk. The story is fast-paced & action-packed right from the start, & no one could narrate this book & speak for our HERO as well as Shatner himself. I do hope that a Book 2 is forthcoming!
Namaste... Jade Dragon

I've read or listened to a number of Shatner's books am a big fan of Star Trek and have enjoyed the biographies from Shatner. However this story is interesting yet I was unable to get very far into it as the narration was monotone and boring almost put me to sleep. When listening to a good book one of the most important parts is to be able to distinguish between characters here it was all monotone. I would suggest that this book be redone with a narrator that has a vocal range that can bring life to the characters, this would include all future books.

Heavy on details at the beginning ... a food sxene setter. Most, if not all, of the described technology seems to be stuff that is being worked on even now. A good start to a series and a few characters ... nit all good guys ... that I am interested on seeing where they go next. it was a book that I listened to in all of my spare moments ... difficult to put down. I look forward to a sequel.
