    PDF escortgps.co æ Torchship Epub ß torchship kindle, Torchship eBookAn astoundingly good first novel Space opera and hard science fiction at the same time The story is organized in episodes that give insight in to the world and the characters; that makes it easy to put down as the thread of the narrative is broken Stick with it At some point the narrative gathers steam the Chekhov's Guns start going off and I found the last half a page turner I would love to see stories in this universe and best of all it has the positive heroic flavor too rare in modern SF Read it in time for Hugo nominations

    PDF escortgps.co æ Torchship Epub ß torchship kindle, Torchship eBookTorchship is good science fiction a solid four starsI find it difficult to talk about this book without giving spoilers It takes place in a future in which something has apparently gone very wrong The main protagonist Mitchie Long is the pilot of the torchship Fives Full a tramp freighter spaceship She navigates and pilots using analog methods really nothing much advanced over the methods used on WW2 warships Why such methods are necessary in a far future situation is a mystery at first

    PDF escortgps.co æ Torchship Epub ß torchship kindle, Torchship eBookA bit disjointed but an okay readThe writing got me hooked pretty uickly The character of Mitchie was well done Billy and the Captain were good as well However I kept backtracking to figure out who the others were cardboard cutouts and forgettable I couldn't even remember who was male and who was female Sometimes I didn't remember the character's first appearance it was like suddenly there was this other person eating in the galley The story of Pete seemed totally out of place I still don't know the point of itThere's no real plot like a collection of short stories about the torchship But for all that I still completed it the book had just enough to keep me going If you can get it for free or on Kindle Unlimited go for it but I'll probably skip any seuels

    PDF escortgps.co æ Torchship Epub ß torchship kindle, Torchship eBookIt's good scifi This is not a space opera but of a near future sort of just hard enough scifi World building starts solid and keeps getting better the main characters are likable and engaging but it takes a bit before some of the not so main characters become distinct The main plot is simple keep the ship and crew working Because of that it allows the author to explore is world in a way that makes sense The subplots weave in and out

    PDF escortgps.co æ Torchship Epub ß torchship kindle, Torchship eBookSome parts of the book are very enjoyable The world building for example is pretty solid Other parts of the book aren't Some of the minor plots just disappear And the characters take a while to become distinct in the mind Which one is that one again?The episodic nature worked for me it was like a back story telling the history of the crewship as it 'levels up' The physics hard sci fi part worked for me when it was consistent view spoiler bullets fired into an object in freefall will cause that object to change it's vector even if they don't penetrate armor I was digging on the good feeling of freefall combat until I wasn't hide spoiler
