I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

From the cover i didn't know what to expect as there was no blurb alongside it to give any idea. Interesting main characters with some good interplay between them, reminds me of Red Dwarf. So a brief synopsis.

Sulliman Smith is a space tug pilot, moving mining rigs from one rock to another, in a world where the morality police enforce rules that segregate men and woman unless they are married. It's lonely work being a space tug pilot,

A word of warning: the first 10 or so pages of this book are B-rutal, that's brutal with a capital B. However, if you can get through those first 10 pages, you will find a very enjoyable book. It starts off with details on mining operations and zzzz.... But then the book transforms into a sci-fi space adventure.

The story follows Sully and his friends on their adventures, or rather misadventures, towards try

A pesar de que había muchas cosas en el libro que me llegaban a confundir en verdad llegue a ponerme en sintonia con este libro y me agrado muchísimo.

En primer lugar la historia es muy original y supongo yo que el autor mezclo muy bien lo que era la realidad (gracias a sus trabajos anteriores) y la ficcion (la historia de estos personajes).

Creo que una de las cosas que mas se me dificulto pero que mas me encanto fue el echo de que aunque era dificil de comprender algunas cosas sobre el oficio d

I was a professional shipmaster for ten years mainly in the North Sea, and afterwards became a marine journalist and technical author, and then a marine representative for rig operations, and a safety consultant.
