I received this book as a gift, no doubt as the author is also from Bristol and has appeared on local radio and at local events and I have enjoyed reading other sci-fi books in the past. On beginning to read it I was *shocked* at the ineptitude of the author and proofreader. If you click Amazon's "Look inside" you can see for yourself: hundreds of ridiculous errors in spelling, grammar and phrasing in the first few pages alone... possibly the most annoying being characters that constantly refer to each other by their ludicrous sci-fi names in full when they're the only two people in the room. The book is unreadable, I've given up a few pages in. I'm sure every other review here is from a fake account or a friend of the author. So, to summarise: This is *dreadful*, check the amazon preview if you don't believe me. No-one should read this book.
