it was ok
Read in November, 2007

dont read this book! on a whim, i bought this and the subsequent 3 sequels, thinking that they would be good since i heard good thing about these books on some online forum. nope. truthfully, i dont know how good the sequels are. they were co-written with another author, so maybe he told frank that his ideas in destination: void were awful. i think this was herberts attempt at a hard scifi that focuses more on the science than the characters. it just seemed like reading a theoretical science book. boring. i skipped a lot of pages just so i could get to the ending. maybe the sequels are good, though...

Ross Kelly Why tell others not to read the book when you didn't even read the entire thing yourself?

Dave Johnson Because it was terrible...

Richp It is not any better in the middle. It is a total failure as hard SF, because, judging by his novels, Herbert had a poor layman's understanding of physics.

Gabriel Gheorghiu yes, I have to admit that the technological theoretical parts are a chore to read through. I otherwise like the concept, the characters and the plot.
