I read, alot. So I know good reads when I get one. This was most definitly a top 1% of great reads. It would translate exceptionally well into being made a movie. The authors comparison of ships and equipment to feeling animals really helps invest the reader into the action. The charscter dialogue does the same. Kudos and thanks! DMB

Good story, with well thought out plot line. The technical side of the story could be a little more descriptive. Biggest gripe was the characters, who felt a little flat.
