I just could not get into this one. The synopsis is certainly intriguing enough, about an aging space freighter from a bygone era that goes through some sort of crisis while the crew tries to pull it together. I wanted to like it. But it was so focused on the minutiae of human interaction that it just got under my skin in a very bad way. Endless, slow narrative describing how the position of someone’s hand and a hair out of place means that they’re planning to destroy you and also to sleep with you, maybe.

What a mess. Returned unfinished for a refund.

I’ve got about 20 books to catch up on here so more reviews are coming soon!
