If you're looking for a good, classic sci-fi story believe me when I say- this is not it! Go right now to your search function, lists, shelves, whatever and find something else! If I could give this a category, it would be called 'space-historical' or 'space-saga.' This is basically a soap opera that spans from the founding of the Arkwright Foundation through the death of Nathan Arkwright, with a history of every other Arkwright family member and the trials they go through as their starship is built, sent to space and the planet is colonized. But there is absolutely no action- It's a narrative and a rather too long and very boring one at that. *yawns*
Why did I even finish it?? -I have no earthly idea! I think I kept hoping that it was going to switch over to a more hands- on, action based story (for lack of better words at the moment because it's 3 am in the morning) but it never did. I'm just glad to finally put it behind me.
