Product Description

Product Description

Nick Papagous has learned his father’s secrets and they have driven him to hate the man he once admired. Nick sets off for Nexus Station, a gateway to humanity’s frontier. Stripped of all of his money, he’s forced into the employ of Max Cabot, an old freighter pilot with a tragic past of his own. To pay off his debts, Max has been running the same route for ten years, running back and forth from Nexus to Dust, the final colony the Republic established.

Dust is remote and isolated from the rest of society, a place abandoned by the Republic due to the high costs associated with operating the colony. Sand storms regularly sweep the planet’s vast plains, making Dust a place few want to go. For Nick, it’s a perfect place to lay low and find his way. However, Nick soon discovers that Dust has its own secrets that will challenge everything he believes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable! 29 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think the title of the book grabbed me initially as it made me think of 'Dune', but it's nothing like it! I still enjoyed it, fairly short with some interesting twists. Slightly predictable but also very readable. A fair amount of action and not too many long descriptions or epic journeys. I liked the characters and the plot reminded me a little of something that may have been a TV series, overall it was enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read for hard sci-fi fans 20 Mar 2012
By Clinton L. Balmain - Published on

An outstanding freshman long-form effort by an accomplished short story writer. Hutt has clearly put a tremendous amount of care into crafting a world that is at once realistic and visionary. Dust feels much like the introduction to a larger universe.

Hutt has an established background working at NASA on the International Space Station, and this expertise is evident. It's refreshing to read a book set in a very distant future that doesn't fall back on what are effectively "magic" tropes. While the world is clearly science-fiction, the reader is left believing that such a world could, indeed even might someday, exist. By setting the story in a world based on realism, Hutt forces the reader to accept that the responses of the characters are also more realistic.

The work feels deeply personal as well. Strong themes of a man's relationship to his father, and a father's relationship to a daughter, pervade the two main characters. The conflicts that ensue are not artificial - they could be conflicts anyone with a family might face. The resolutions of the conflicts are fairly ambiguous as well, just as often happens with "real" family conflicts.

I look forward to reading more stories set in the universe of Dust. It is my belief, and my hope, that Hutt is just beginning to reveal his brave new world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dust by Jason Hutt - an excellent read 25 Feb 2012

I just finished reading this novel and loved it. Interesting characters and a plot that kept moving and got me interested very quickly. I like the character development and how it unfolded throughout the book. I also liked how the story was about the characters and the sic-fi was the setting, not the focus of the book. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for an interesting story.Dust

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Story...excellent book 26 May 2012

I get so many free books from amazon that I usually only finish 2 of 5 or 6 that I start. I rarely read sci fi because I find it tedious but this book read really easily for me. I liked the characters a lot and in found the ending really appropriate to what we are facing in our own futures. I thought the book hit 5 stars on all levels. To write more would be spoiling. I highly recommend this book, I don't even know the author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Marginal 3 April 2012
By E. Tom Jorgenson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This had the potential of being a much more interesting story. But the author spent too much time on the details of
running a spaceship and tedium and not enough in what could have been the really interesting parts of the story. About 2/3 of the novel is spent in details that aren't very interesting. When the story finally gets to the interesting part it just focuses on carnage.
