While I am a big fan of unique science fiction ideas, space travel and aliens the writing in this particular novel did not collaborate with my love of ideas. The writing seemed disjointed and rushed, possibly partly due to the highly minimalistic style used.
Personally if this had been a film I may have enjoyed it. The fact that the writing rushed here and there and then left so many gaps made reading it a real chore. Personally I love a written novel where you don't have to constantly work out what is going on and where the character is. But that is what this forced me to do. It was, to say the least, confusing.
