In essence, the book is about a group of scientists who are working in a base on the moon when an alien space ship lands. The lead scientist is taken into the ship and is shown visions of numerical symbols as well as his own subconscious. This leads to him being under suspicion by the government as being a traitor. As the book progresses, the aliens send a message to earth which overrides all of the computer systems on earth causing mass devastation, this is seen as an act of war and the military decided to attack, although such an action does nothing at all. In response the aliens start draining the power from the sun making it turn into a red giant, there by effectively setting it on the path to consume earth. The scientists have to find away to reverse this and save earth... There is a whole thing about hyper dimensional travel, manipulation of space-time, faster than light travel, yati yati yatta..
As I said, the concept is awesome, and is genius. Unfortunately the implementation was crummy. The characters were terribly developed, you had all the regular token clichés. The hard-ass military guy, the by the book, goody two shoe boring ethical scientist, the love story, the quirky Einstein-esque genius who no one believes. What a sucky cast! All of the characters were 1 dimensional, were boring as anything and really were as mundane as you can get. Additionally, the book starts out great, fast moving, intriguing, than it literally dies... Part 1 is great, part 2 is good but convoluted, than part 3 just hits a wall, and goes off on some bizarre tangent about the Chinese, a love story, the main characters parents and get BORING as hell... The author definately needs to FOCUS!!!
I definitely think this book is a skip or at least a library rental. Definitely don't pay full price get it from the $0.01 list.
