I rather enjoyed reading through this fairly long novel. The author shoots for the stars with some fascinating ideas revolving around the unearthing of a massive, city-sized alien ship. As expected a lot of the book discusses the scientific, theological, militaristic and economical issues that would occur following such an event. Some of these passages are a tad laboured and slow the pacing down, but this is just a personal preference, as I was particularly excited to read more and more about the awesome spaceship --- a literal Disneyland for sci-fi geeks. I marveled at the fact that all of these ideas came out of one man's head and found it particularly interesting that he chose to set his novel in a relatively near, but much changed future.

Perhaps a case could be made against for cramming so much into one book, as I do think there are too many characters involved and it was occasionally difficult to get a handle on proceedings. However, the pay-offs are more than worth it -- they'll make you want to order part 2 on the Omniverse saga immediately - Through Darkness and Stars (The Omniverse)

It started off well with the discovery of the ship, but it went rapidly downhill after that. Too much banal conversation and interaction between the characters that added nothing to the story and just padded it out. Too much religious nonsense, with mad religious fanatics spewing on at great length. Too much military political "area 51" nonsense. It appeared that the author had forgotten the point of the story: A GIANT ALIEN STARSHIP WAS DISCOVERED BURIED IN THE DESERT! There was no convincing reason given for it's presence and apparently in 60 million years no other aliens had bothered to come our way! And to cap it all, the ending was feeble and pointless. Honestly, it's enough to make me throw away my Kindle!

A good twist on alian invasion. 'The Unearthing' together with it's sequal 'Through Darkness and Stars' follows events surrounding, and following, the unearthing of a gigantic spacecraft in the Mid-Western deserts of America. The story looks at not only the political/military response but also, unusually, the posible spiritual/religious response of humanity to the discovery that we are definatly not alone.

The two books place humanity nicely on the back foot in the sense that we are not the center of galactic events - not the conquoring hero's, but instead are desperately playing catch-up. Humanity is rocked and buffeted psychologically, and is constantly 'on the ropes'.

'The Unearthing' starts out with a fairly standard 'discovery, exploration of, and communication with the alian craft' story, told from the viewpoints of several people from scientific to military, and is told in a very readable fashion. It's not until the second book that things really get interesting though, with an expedition in the craft becoming an unintended Exodus for humanity, religious strife and a real invasion of Earth by some serious baddies.

It's definately worth reading the first book in order to get to the second.

This book is undoubtedly one of the best SciFi books I have read. Well thought out with many different threads running through. I am currently reading the follow on book.

Loved this book from the very first page! Main character gets killed off - new main character takes over. Entwined backgrounds and stories. I was right there with each character. Set far enough in the future for some interesting differences but near enough that it could just be a few years. Can't wait to see if there is a sequel as I now so want to see what happens to them on their new adventure as it just begs for another book!

While the story is captivating, and relatively well written, the narrative is often disjointed, contradictory and confusing. Basically it needs a hand of a good editor to correct the contradictions and breaks in narrative. Had I a hard copy the urge to break out my own red pen and start correcting things would have been irresistible. That said, upon finishing reading it I immediately grabbed sequel. Make of that what you will.

I wonder if this author is OCD.
I made it to 37% before calling it off. The book is chock a block with incidental detail that has no bearing on the laboriously dull plot droning on like a windbag.
It is interspersed with pseudo profundity,which reads like a 6th composition essay. Some of the basic ideas are good and potentially interesting, but executed rather naively.
Waste of cash. Waste of time.

the story line has been covered by so many authors over the years, but this is a very elegant and creative treatment of it. the story automatically opens the way for a series of books and actually left me anticipating the next book eagerly. not really sure why the early main character was killed off, maybe just for the extra drama. in any case the whole story is remarkably convincing.
Bring on the next.
