I found out about this author through a different blog (biliopirate’s page) and it sounded good enough to try especially as I was about to be travelling for business and needed something to read on the plane. It is a very easy read and the author does a really good job of constructing a new world for the reader to dig into.
The character is interesting enough to pique the reader’s interest to see where he ends up and the cast of supporting characters are unique in their own personalities. The author leaves enough hints that there is potential of each character being explored more in the following books.
There is no huge clash like a war or saving humanity, but you don’t really miss it. You get immersed in life as a travelling space jockey and I didn’t even see the end of the book coming! Will definitely be reading the next book in the series.
