this child of Event Horizon and Outland was a severe disappointment. silly, nonsensical, zero characterization, and the worst sentient computer voice i've ever seen depicted in dialogue. i can read only so many descriptions of an old woman's sour body odor before realizing how all-inclusive the novel is when it comes to cliches. and i had such high hopes! a haunted space station is an ideal setting and it is irritating to see that setting squandered in trite set pieces and an excessive desire to be the snarkiest book in the room.

Brainycat So, you're saying it doesn't really have any redeeming qualities?

message 2: by mark (new) - rated it 1 star

mark monday sadly, that is exactly what i'm saying. i may use the cover for a collage though, if i still did collages. but i'm sure the folks in our drop-in center will appreciate its presence on the donation shelf!
