Great story! I love the description of the main body impact, but I was bummed Rance was murdered. Lots of interesting stuff about space.

Review by: Doug Pardee on May 27, 2010 :
I try to give a book about 30 pages before I bail on it, but the writing style was so grating that I didn't even get 10 pages in. Dramatization is almost totally absent; instead we're 'treated' to a narrative flashback that goes on and on and on with the protagonist continually whining and agonizing about how rotten his life is... jeez, where's the *story*?

Maybe it gets better later in the book, but I'll never know. I wanted this loser of a protagonist to just kill himself and save us *both* the suffering.

Liberal trash. Not good enough to read even if I was paid.

what a great story! It kept me up all night. Imagine knowing before anyone else that an asteroid that is suppose to miss us will actually hit, that you have just ten weeks to save as many people as possible, and that you have billions to spend. What would you do?
