This review is from: Destination of the Colony Ship (Colony Ship Eschaton #10) (Kindle Edition)

“Not so much a good book but the final chapter of a really great book. It held my attention from the start of the first book to the end. What can john Thornton do for an encore?”-- Barry Cullum

I just recently discovered the Colony Ship Eschaton series recently and have enjoyed it immensely. It was fun trying to visualize and then guess what animals the characters were describing.

I have to be honest and say that there were some things that I found annoying, like constantly saying "Habitat One: Coastal Plains" et al...we got it, there are eight habitats; the author could have shortened the Habitats to just their names after the first book. I didn't like how 'superior' and 'condescending' many of the Domer characters were towards the people on the ship; including Jamie and Michael. While I understand that there are people like that in the real world, in the literary would, we want our 'good guys' to be good.

But my personal issues aside, I highly recommend going ahead and downloading all the books.”  --The Gecko

“With sci-fi tales I look for new and unusual plot lines and exciting ways to solve futuristic problems. This story was good at providing those things, but it did leave some questions unanswered. The death and the un-death of the first person they meet on the colony ship.”—An Amazon Customer

“Do you remember the juvenile novels of Robert A Heinlein? Do you remember how easy it was to get lost in them? That is what John Thorton's Recovery of a Colony Ship reminds me of. It's just a good fun yarn! Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that he is in the same category as RAH but who knows, RAH wasn't the Grand Master in his early works either. What I'm saying if you want read a book, and have reality suspended for awhile, then this is it.”—George12p
