I read/listened to the five books. The story, plot, and research underpinning this series is great and had the potential to get almost full marks across the board. Enjoyable and worth it. However there were some very cringe worthy and cheesy sections that let it down. I can forgive the few inconsistencies with time distance etc.. no big deal. But OMG the romance and relational interludes were like reading or watching a pathetic tv soap like, ‘Bold and Beautiful’ script unfold in front of you. I predicted easily what was going to happen in the first half of the first book the way the author was going to head with the romance through the whole series. It was like he couldn’t help but introduce his own fantasies into the story. If only the author left this ‘Bold and Beautiful’ crap out it would have got higher marks from me. Also each book followed a same same formula with plot development l, but I didn’t mind that. It was the cringe worthy romance crap that was annoying especially in book four. Overall it was enjoyable.

I could tell you that this book was the most interesting, fun, and different book I have ever, ever, ever come across ever, but I won't because it is illegal, in fact it is illegal for me to say anything about it. It also mentions angels, though let's pretend you did not know that since it is illegal to talk of angels also.
So in conclusion you could say I may or may not have thoroughly enjoyed this book. I did. but go check with a scientist who will hook me up to a machine, write something on his clipboard then indicate the answer to you using actual words.

As far as an uncomplicated Sci Fi goes this one hits the spot. While it's no Peter F Hamilton it's much better than a Larsen. Sometimes it's great to have a relaxing story. Just what the doctor ordered.
