I started this last night, and the beginning is second person, which I often find distancing despite its intention, and there is simply way too much world-building slang. Why use "evac" when you can just say "evacuation"? I don't object to the world-building at all, but more than half of the slang is something you've heard before if you've read a single other space-travel book and it just jars you out of the world you've only just recently entered.

Still going to keep reading, since I'm only five pages in and it deserves a chance.
