The story moves along at a nice pace, switching back and forth between key players as events unfold, and though there's some obvious padding here and there, which I found a touch tedious, it didn't stop me from turning the pages.
After following Andrew's chapters on his blog I was keen to read this in book format, compared to the unnatural way blog text is laid out - paragraph gaps, no indents etc, unnatural for reading fiction anyway. There have been some changes prior to launch as a novel, and the editing process has aided the flow.
Since reading his previous novel, Noah's Ark, it is evident that Andrew has matured as a writer. Vessel has come cracking description segments. The scenes on the ISS are unnerving as the conditions come across as cramped and awkward, bordering on claustrophobic. I was reminded on a number of occasions of movies like Event Horizon, or even Alien, where the camera angles narrow down toward the end to confine the viewer into a smaller space.
Vessel is an ambitious story, which at times suffered from either a lack of planning or guess work when it came to research. Andrew creates a good foundation of realism in order to make the fantastical elements believable. I didn't enjoy the initial introduction to the abbreviations and jargon, especially in the opening scenes.Read more ›
A cunningly devised thriller set in Russia and onboard the International Space Station,
the story fast paced enough to keep interest, without skipping over the fascinating detail of the ISS, I can honestly say the imagery is so vivid I almost felt I was there.
Well worth a read, personally I am already excited for the sequel...
However, now there is an additional vessel orbiting in space.
Andrew J. Morgan’s imageries of place and action help draw the reader in, investing in characters from the outset.
I particularly liked following the parallel, related stories—one on the ground, one 240 miles in space—as they unfolded page after page. Sally Fisher, a communication expert specializing in deep space transmission is rushed to the space station in an attempt to contact the glistening apparition that is following the ISS. Her immediate overseer, however, has other plans.
Journalist Sean Jacob gets wind of some of the goings on and decides to investigate, opening a can of worms that neither he nor his editor can contain. Conspiracy, secrets and betrayal are the order of the day in this tale of international, perhaps, interplanetary intrigue.
The evolution of the characters allows the reader to become involved in their lives, struggles, hopes and fears. The story arc keeps us attached to the next twist and eventual outcome. The narrative is both plausible, and possible.
For lovers of strongly written science fiction that carries a worthwhile message, I highly recommend “Vessel.”
