I think this is my favorite of the three Weir has written so far, and I really liked The Martian and Artemis. As before, I may have tripped over the scientific theories and jargon here and there, but in no way did it detract from the sheer enjoyment of the original plot. A lone survivor of a suicide mission dealing with alien life forms? Yes! Loved the friendship building between Grace and Rocky. Even the flashbacks didn't interrupt the flow; in fact, they lent insight into the events that led up to Grace's current situation. It's fantastic. I don't know how Weir comes up with this stuff, but I sure hope he keeps them coming. A must read! 4.5 stars.
