The story line was really great, up to the end that is.

Generations after mankind was forced to flee earth the main power in the galaxy decides that if mankind had destroyed earth the last humans must be exterminated for the greater good of the galaxy, if a natural disaster had destroyed earth we would be given all the help we needed to build a new civilisation. The problem is that all records of what happened have been lost over time, a team of humans and aliens must decide what is fact and what is fiction: is it someone recording the end of the world or was it part of a disaster movie.

It was really great up till about the last 2 chapters, at that point it just turned into a pile of garbage (before then I would have given it 4 stars), it made no real sense as all, it was as though the author just decided they had had enough and wanted to finish the book in as few words as possible or had decided to lecture us all on the evils of consumerism, corporations and capitalism (although there was no hint of this in the rest of the book).

Found it dreary and tedious. Tried to persevere but gave up after about a hundred pages. Not for me, sorry.

1.0 out of 5 stars Painful read 25 July 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow! The author sure does like exclamation points!
After a few chapters, I continued plowing through it against my better judgement-- and I sincerely regret that decision. Here are a few of the problems.
1) Disjointed-- This book was all over the place. A story line would develop a bit and then shift abruptly or just disappear altogether. Same problem with character development. Pretty much a random walk-- it read like a group effort put together at an ADD convention.
2) Derivative-- plot elements, technologies and speculations derived from many great sci-fi works were very clearly recognizable. I actually didn't find much novel in the book other than the "Void" -- and that was more religious or utopian speculation than sci-fi.
3) Bad science-- nano-robots "smaller than molecules"... enough water from melting ice to cover most of the land on earth... moon dust "swirling around" their feet in the absence of atmosphere... the list goes ON! and ON! (sorry!-- the number of exclamation points in the book got really annoying! I needed to vent!)
4) Poor writing-- One other review mentioned shallow characters and junior high level language. I concur. I actually wasn't surprised to see that most of his books are children's stories. That can be tolerable in a book with interesting and NOVEL ideas, but those saving graces weren't present here. (See #2 above).
5) The editing pretty much sucked. The misspellings and grammar errors were very distracting.

The author clearly has the follow through needed to write a novel, but he needs to find his own ideas and write for adults if he is going to write sci-fi. (and he REALLY needs to lose the obsession with exclamation points!).

1.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to like it. 7 May 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I only read a quarter of the story. I wanted to like it. On the downside it was one-dimensional. Lots of thought and explanation and almost no action. The language was amateurish....the being that rose to the top of the intelligentsia sounded exactly the same as the entry level collegiate as well as the experienced archaeologist and his son....they all sound like junior high students. On the plus side I didn't run into any typos in the part I read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but... 3 Mar. 2012
By DLM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm giving this book two stars not because the overall storyline didn't have potential but because the really trite, anti-capitalism ending ruined it for me. The story held my interest until the last three or four chapters. Then I felt like I was receiving a lecture on the evils of corporate greed and big oil. Please, there were so many interesting directions the author was exploring and it was a total let down that this was what he chose at the end. The final chapter took a really weird and esoteric slant that, again, felt more like I was being "lectured at" than that the author was wrapping up the story. Finally, the editing totally fell apart in the second half of the book which became very distracting. I wouldn't have wasted my time reading this if I would have known in advance that in the end this was just a vehicle for the author to spin his political views.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite Ready for Publication 16 April 2012
By Geoffrey A. Snyder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The premise attracted my attention as it seemed like such a great idea. I was disappointed that it had an amateurish feel to it; the writing just wasn't tight and I think the author could stand more time rewriting and tightening it up. Grammatically it wasn't bad and the spelling was fine and all - it just didn't read like a finished product.

I'm really sorry about that because I wanted to like this book.
