This novella is fast paced, very easy to read, and doesn't get bogged down in unnecessary description and rambling. Not for the hard core sci fi fan, it's believable with the reference to technology easy to understand and follow. I enjoyed the characters, though feel the main two are a little under-developed. The plot moves along quickly, almost a little too quickly in some parts, and I feel that some areas could be extended a little, but for those wanting a quick and easy read, it's ideal. It certainly kept me reading!
