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)
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.
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.
Bring on the next.
