Good book! Interesting, unique and a well planned storyline. I have not come to expect much of some of the free books. They are usually written with passion, but many of the authors have difficulty with using appropriate descriptive words, and matching different dialog styles with individual characters. Mr. Moreton does not have any of these issues. His characters’ dialog is just like life. Each individual has their own voice, their own fears and hopes, and their own personality.
I particularly enjoyed the premise of the story, as well as the overall storyline. It kept my attention, and made me want to read more.
That said; there were numerous typos and formatting errors. I am not sure if part of the problem came in the format conversion to the Kindle format, or just a lack of thorough editing. Another issue I had was with the science of the story. Being a hard science fiction reader for 40 years makes me a bit of a critic of stories that have obvious scientific errors in it. This one had several, and while they were easy enough to ignore, the errors did detract from the story.
The only other small criticism I had was with the ending. While I appreciate that the author was attempting to bring closure, and give the reader some hope for the future, it felt a little abrupt, like the author just wanted to finish quickly. A better ending could have left the reader hanging, opening up a possible sequel, or adding more detail to the last bit of action.
None the less, a fine book, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a unique perspective on a growing issue!
