But alien explorers seek the same information, and when Ann's RNA drip begins to break down, it becomes a deadly race to solve the riddle of the glyphs before she loses her mind--permanently.

Abandoned on page 75 after the female lead forgives her lover for attempted murder. I read fiction to escape and there is quite enough of that in reality.

There are some interesting ideas in here (the glyphs, in particular), although the character development isn't totally there (including a couple bits that are sort of problematic from a believability standpoint). It took me a while to get used to the slightly nonlinear way it's written, but i liked it when I got used to it. Curious to see where it goes from there.

One of the trippier books I've read.

Neat ideas and fun, which makes it an easy read, though the main character's motivations seem a tad challenging to believe. And seriously, that's how it ends ... ? Without offering a spoiler, how many times have I encountered that particular conclusion?

Interesting universe and spacecrafts. I thought the first part of the book was the best part.

I liked the glyphs concept. Doing Heavy Time made this book better than I thought it would be.
