The author went quite a distance at rather a slow pace; the characters buzzed around on a variety of vehicles that were "Tomorrow's World" out of "Flash Gordon" with some of the empty optimism of the former but none of the pzaz of the latter and many concepts first and better seen in classic Sci-Fi. Several seemingly disparate story lines were slowly developed - some on Earth, some on the Moon and some at points inbetween and beyond. It was past one thousand pages before something like a denoument surfaced and it became apparent that was what all those pages of print had been leading towards. It could all have been so splendid, limitless in scope but the net result is a grand idea spoilt by mundane writing.
Of course being translated by several people did not help; one wonders whether the many translaters each took a character (and the oft obtuse musings and strange behaviour of same) or whether the opus was simply divided up amongs the work force - which is rather how it reads. What a pity. DJG

This book is not fast-paced. This is more like an older Stephen King tome mixed with Michael Crichton. The story is very well-researched, and the characters are large in volume. It took a little bit to get going, but I'm so glad that I started this. If you're an average reader like me, it will take a while to get through this suspenseful book, but it is worth it in my opinion as the story is so layered.
A space elevator has been built to get to the moon, and a resort is being opened there. Lots of prominent people are showing up to this state of the art place, but of course, disaster strikes. If you like suspenseful sci-fi, definitely give this one a shot.
