I was like having old married couples over for dinner and afterwards everyone sat around and talked, And talked. And talked. And not much else happening at all.
Watching paint dry never seemed so attractive an alternative as it did while reading this book.
Then why four stars?
I gave him four stars because of his previous books in the series, and the great writing applied to this book.
The guy can write and whether I liked the book or not, many others will. Different strokes. Good writing should be rewarded, and Scott Rhine wrote a very good book. Just not one that passes my personal taste test.
I know for a fact that I've read more than my share of crap that would make many of you wince even as you prayed for my immortal soul, so no, I'm no arbiter of all that is good in bookdom.
But I do know what I like when I read it.
Keep writing Mr. Rhine; I'm still a fan.
Because of my false expectation that this would finish a trilogy, I found myself less than satisfied with the ending. Even upon more reasoned review, I still am not in agreement with some aspects of the final resolution. For that reason, I can only grant this book four stars instead of five. Overall, this is an excellent purchase for anyone who likes sci-fi coming of age (species wide) stories. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who has already finished reading any of the rest of this series. Mr. Rhine is truly an exceptional author.
Having read the other reviews, we all seem to agree that this book is not as good as the first in the series and a little disappointing so I only rate it as a 3-star. It would appear that the other reviewers gave some credit for the previous books so the rating is extremely generous. I kept reading it only because I felt that it had to get somewhere eventually but sorry to say, that it didn't.
It did set the scene for another book since it didn't really end at a point that gave closure. However, it didn't leave me with enough interest to puchase another episode so it doesn't matter whether this was the final book of a trilogy or not.
Sorry Scott, this just wasn't up to the same standard as the first book.
While I would call the first book urban fantasy (science fiction) and the second book was a light science fiction school drama I would call this book solid science fiction.
I would recommend it to any fan of science fiction and exploration stories.
