Wow! I'm not even sure what to say about this book without ruining it for everyone. I'm not normally much of a sci fi reader, but I loved this book. It took me a little while in the beginning to figure things out. The format is so different and there were a lot of names to learn (people, ships, companies, etc). I really started getting into it after a couple hundred pages and then didn't want to put it down. I had so many different emotions during different parts of the book. And the ending! I will be starting the next book tomorrow and I can't wait to find out what happens.
Good Points
Interesting story.
Fast paced.
Great illustrations.
Different than other books I've read.
