Others Tomas and Mirakel Hyvönen – this space craft has a bold mission to study what is being called ‘the anomaly’ – a vast blackness of space into which the Ishiguro disappeared Between them Tomas on the ground guiding the mission from the command centre and Mira on the ship with the rest of the. This is uite possibly the most depressing book I have ever read The main character the narrating voice is a petty insecure and hopelessly inadeuate person whose accomplishments are completely and incredulously out of sync with the task to which he s been assigned The writer mercilessly and sadly rather elouently explores in infinite detail the conseuences this has for the mission and then subjects the reader to the incredibly slow paced exploration of a plot mechanism that had me at times almost writhing with angst I guess that could be seen as some kind of intellectual achievement but personally I feel I do not need to examine the futility of life at the pace and with the sensation of fingernails being extracted

The Echo

Hand picked crew are leaving nothing to chanceBut soon these two scientists are to learn that there are some things in space beyond our understanding As the anomaly begins to test the limits of Mira’s comprehension – and his sanity – will Tomas be able to save his brother from being lost in space too. What a great seuel to The Explorer Interesting dark well written mysterious and in the last third absolutely terrifying The Echo is the first book from James Smythe that I can give 5 stars to The problem was with me I had read all his novels but they were almost to dark and uncomfortable for me Not any Smythe just needs some time to rearrange your reading brain After that you ll be his for life Really great science fiction

Twenty years following the disappearance of the infamous Ishiguro – the first manned spacecraft to travel deeper into space than ever before – humanity are setting their sights on the heavens once Under the direction of two of the most brilliant minds science has ever seen – that of identical twin br. I pretty much finish every book I start reading but I came very close to tossing this one than once I don t know who is to blame the author or the editors The term that I keep coming back to for this book is stupid It s a stupid book I had no problem with the strange first person narrative style of the book That was an interesting experiment that actually works reasonably well And the plot and the workings of the artifact were intriguing Even the ending was interesting But I kept tripping over idiocy that any decent editor should have removed The first chapter and beginning of the second beat into your head the idea that Every part of this process has been designed to ensure that nothing can go wrong I cannot stress that enough the level of control that we have enacted on this entire operation He must say it a hundred times Even entering the ship is a carefully orchestrated process But then we find they did no zero G training made no plans for the psychological health of the crew have no sleep schedule at all don t seem to know about major health issues in two crew members and don t really have much of a plan on what to do during the journey It s like the first two chapters were written with that careful control idea then the author said ah heck with it this is too much trouble and forgot it completely There are tons of these inconsistencies in the book The protagonist only every dry swallows pills then later has to find water to take his pill then later decides he is starting to get used to dry swallowing a pill Editor Where were youThe author does not understand basic physics He routinely confuses acceleration with velocity He doesn t understand the concept of momentum at all And then we will coast using that momentum slowing to maintain that speed only holding it as long and as far as we can Slowing to maintain that speed He refused to let a crew member talk to his family because it would be using scarce communication resources Never mind that he keeps a 24 hour channel open to his brother Then we get into the plot stupidities There is never any thought as to reasonable approaches to solving the problems they encounter You find yourself screaming at the book I don t want to put in spoilers but there were some simple things they could have done or at least tried at many points in the book Instead it s clear the author has a plot and is following that without justifying any of the action One major plot point is seriously deus ex machina The characters go to sleep at the same time no less and wake to a situation change that is completely implausible yet something they likely could have thought to do themselves in a controlled way There s another situation with a simple resolution that might have saved two crew members but he didn t know what would happen so he just decided to leave them dead The protagonist is really fond of inaction because we don t know what will happenI m shocked this has good reviews I felt it was an insult to my intelligence And I really blame the editor Some simple feedback and the author could have fixed most of the problems uite easily The fact he did not makes this book just about impossible to tolerate

    My but this is a challenging book to review First though let me say this if you liked The Explorer then you should definitely like The Echo which takes the formula from the first book and refines it in every aspect resulting in a book that is much polished emotional and insightful than its predecessor Smythe’s

    I absolutely loved The Explorer and though this book isn't directly a seuel it follows the events of The Explorer but can be read stand alone I highly recommend checking out the first book if you haven't yet The Echo is similar in style to its predecessor dark atmospheric paced and tense However the voice of the main character in The Echo Mira a Swedish scientist is distinct and very different from the first book whose m
