Top critical review
on 22 January 2017
I'm a fan of Clarke and Asimov. I consider their writing to be true sci-fi: well drawn characters living through and exploring scientific concepts and hypotheticals. This is just space opera with long boring descriptions of super ships and crashes of super ships into super other things. Interesting concepts do play a part but just as backdrop to characters that aren't compelling in any particular way on a quest that never drew me in. Two thirds in I just gave up. I was so bored.
