Book Review: To Sleep in a Sea of Stars


To Sleep in a Sea of Stars, By Christopher Paolini

This is a space opera in something like the old tradition.  Paolini apparently hit the big time with his young adult Eragon series, which I haven’t read, and this, apparently, is his first adult work.  It features a few varieties of menacing and sometimes interesting aliens, some interesting technology/magic, and a lot of bang-bang action.

It held my attention pretty well for the first 400 pages or so, but this is a long book, 878 pages, and I found the climatic long drawn out space battle a bit tedious.  I can see this as a Netflix series.
