dealskindle scifi daily deal for july 16, 2013…


I borrowed this book from the Lending Library, and I have to admit I'm glad I didn't pay for it. I was actually disappointed by the time wasted having to wait until I could borrow another book, it was so bad. I guess for a $1.99 it's not a terrible deal, but I really didn't like this book. I don't have time to go into too much detail, but the gist of it is that the author spent too much time developing unrealistic relationships and not enough time explaining how she felt a planet with 7 suns would evolve a blundering, slow-witted race of mouth breathers into an advanced civilization capable of putting "cell phones" (among other technologies seemingly impossible to imagine from such a race) together with fingers the size and dexterity of rolls of dollar coins. Not enough though was put into creating the Dideto and differentiating them from "Earthers" as they (we?) are called in the book to make them believable. I can't recommend wasting your time even for $1.99.
