As I suggested, it starts off great, but instead we get 200 pages of a cardboard character interrogating a prisoner, and nothing either of them know is at all surprisin.
It looks like a convoluted way to get Althea to try and correct a computer virus across from the cell holding the prisoner, but the cell has a food slot or something in it so the two can talk.
Yet tha is a super-secret experimental spaceship with a super-smart computer running it and it 's powered by a black hole.
It barely even has maintenance robots, just arms on wheels, like Dummy from the first Iron Man movie.Once the bad guys install a virus on the cruise, the only recourse is to cut off the computer 's control by throwing a dead man switch ...
( Yeah, thi guy who designed the ship gets spaghettified by the black hole.) Besides falsely insisting on the Gravity/Aliens comparison, the cover also says the author has a diplom in hysics.
If true, th novel is so relentlessly dumb that I have to assume said degree comes from Trump University.
More like The Rocco Cornell University of Typewriter Repair.) At the nd of this story Althea tells the computer that they ca n't tay in the solar system because the ship will perturb the orbits of the othe planets.
Which means it only masses that of th small moon, not something the size of a star.Even I know hat, without a degree in mathematic from Rocco 's joint.The characters are also ridiculously dumb.
I just saved you time.Seems to me that if you ave a super-hacker who can infiltrate a beyond-secret experimental spaceship with a bespoke computer ON THE FLY and then escape said ship with no one being the wiser, only to then hack every single nuclear power plant on Earth in the moments after the terrorists have set off seven world-ending nuclear bombs, then the easiest thing to do is hack the System and bring freedom to the oppressed masses by turning off the constant surveillance.Seriously, if omeone can hack ALL of the nuclear plants at once after the massive EMPs of nuclear weapons big enough to crack the crust, not to mention the sheer destruction those bombs would wreak, then that hacker could have just urned the plants off.
Now imagine the entire solar system is under the han of a ruthless dictatorial yet anonymous group of people who run every planet and moon like North Korea.
There ould be hacks everywhere, constantly, and urdering billions of people is n't the way to win anyone to your cause.Like I said, dumb.This was published by Random House, FFS.
