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).
