Interesting premise, but it seemed repetitive and somewhat long towards the end. i was hoping for much much more. Too bad

A Fun Read, Well Done July 25 2012
By Fred Rayworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I haven't read a pure science fiction novel in a while and this one was quite well done. Short chapters, great characters and an exciting plot made for a fun read.

I won't go into the plot but can say that it does have some icky bugs in it. There's a lot of NASA stuff going on and if that's your thing, you'll have fun with that. I found myself wanting to keep turning pages with the crisp narrative and fast-paced action that didn't drag. Short chapters that were easy to read, even during commercials made this thick novel a great experience.

The story also ended well and that's a big plus for me. I didn't have any problem with either the science, logistics or any of what happened, though I'm no expert and I'm sure anyone intimately familiar with the reality could probably pick all kinds of holes in it.

For me, it was worth the price of admission. Highly recommended.
Heaven's Shadow = "Dead wife? Propagate the human race!" Feb. 27 2015
By Sam Smolders - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I get it. Great space/earth adventure. The descriptions aren't that bad at all and the expedition is described in good detail.

The only problem is that the book feels completely filthy (for me). I wanted sci-fi, not relationship porn. :/
I give it one star for capturing a fantastic environment and actually projecting the setting in sci-fi.

I don't know how they they expect me to sit through (and enjoy) a book that is basically laced with a "thumb's up" for post-mortem infidelity, that then brings the wife back to life for affirmation... ...then kills her off again... and goes on to say that the man must now help propagate the human race... because aliens and lust needing satisfying.

I'm talking about the main character. He has a new sex partner after his wife dies and then he must propagate the human race.

All this wrapped in an "alien encounter."
"Till death do us part..." *sigh*

I thought I was going to read a sci-fi book.
This was way too much relationship bullcrap for my taste.
Without that, I'd give it 3 or 4 stars (for the quality of literism).

It felt average or above-average in capturing the sci-fi element,
but totally trashed by the relationship and after-death sex crap.

The back (preview) text didn't even hint at stuff like this.
It just told me that I was going to read a sci-fi book and the picture on the front has absolutely nothing to do with any of the events in the book.
There is no sci-fi city in the book. They simply go to an asteroid that has a literal garden of eden and an old temple.

Mind you, I read the whole book; and I did just give you the complete summary.

I'm not sure what his book wanted to be. It read like it was written by a committee. It had a lot of interesting premises that were all overshadowed by it being a horrible book.
