Format: Paperback
David Scholes is an incredibly decent fella. He's a better writer and this book is testament to the fact. Of late I have been going through something of a mid-life crisis in my reading-all too often I have struggled to get involved in story-lines which strike me as "more of the same." If you want something quirky and different but with some recognisable features of some things you may have visited in the past then get this book. It's a fun read with great dialogue and characterisation and it is distinctive in the way this reader wanted it.

To go any further might spoil the plot. Suffice to say I recommend this book!

An utterly dreadful book, not worth the memory it takes up. I can usually read most books but this is one of a handful of books I could not finish and I have been reading SF for 5 decades!

HASH(0x90bb663c) out of 5 stars I finished it, that's a star 23 Nov. 2013
By t'Sade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I struggled with finding anything about this story that I enjoyed. There are three basic areas which detracted from what had the potential of a good story: editing, Gary Stu, and telling.

Editing: This story gives the sense of being rushed out the door. There are many places where commas were appropriate to separate forms of address, clauses, and the occasional. There is also the occasional typo and more cases where missed capitalization or punctuation would make the reader's experience a lot more enjoyable. This also includes the need to explain character's roles in almost every chapter (I got tired of "former Chicago..." quickly) or giving the full name and abbreviation of the IDS in all but one place it was used.

Gary Stu: The idea of Gary Stu is a character who is perfect at everything, except maybe one or two trivial reasons. The main character of this piece is one of those. The narrative even points that out with the occasional phrase. Everything escalates, but the main character handles it with grace and perfection, never making a single mistakes. I find these characters to be the least enjoyable to read, because I want to see people crushed, do stupid things, and then crawl out of the hole. Not be awesome in one place, just to move to another place to be even more awesome.

Telling: I had no emotional attachment to these characters. Not the bad guys or the good guys. Much of that is because the story doesn't use a lot of active verbs or writing. It is more of someone telling me how great this character is, go through Earth-threatening scenes in a matter of paragraphs, much like the Authority comics. While it may appeal to some, it left me cold.

The reason I gave two stars is because I actually finished reading it. I kept hoping that something would happen that would ruin his day. There was a slight blip in the middle, and I was really hoping that some other character would shine, but I ended up being disappointed by the story as a whole.

HASH(0x90bb6690) out of 5 stars Fresh and enjoyable! 28 Mar. 2012
By Golem - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I've received this book a few weeks ago as a gift from a friend and took me a mere 2 days to read it all! The story is very involving, the characters are relatable (yes, even the aliens it seems) and their interactions completely believable. Especially the growing link between Earle and Chris, the two main protagonists, is very well crafted and delivered in a sufficiently prominent way. But, essentially, it's a sci fi book and as such it also delivers. Much action, from the US to Afghanistan to the Infinity well (with many other stops in-between)! Their enemies many and fearsome with well defined power levels and imaginative alien technology. All in all, a great book you'll be completing in a day or two. Moody, funny at times, action packed and with something of the novels of the old as the core component is the finely tuned relationship of Chris and Earle! Read this one, you won't regret it!

HASH(0x900d7c24) out of 5 stars Ok for the price 7 July 2014
By anita thorp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If I had paid for this book I would have been instructor the waste of money and time. This might have been a good book for 1st or 2 nd graders but not anyone else. I am a sci fi fan and this book disappointed me to the depths of my soul!

I just couldn't get into it. I tried, I really did. It just was boring to me. I will say that it was probably just my own point of view.

Was a very interesting read. Looking into more by the author. Couple of spots weren't as good as the total.
