I'll see if the local library has it. *comes back* They do!

Well, I finally got a chance to read it, and . . . well, I  more or less enjoyed it, but I probably wouldn't have read if it weren't for who the author was. Lots of neat and accurate technical details, but the writing and characters felt a little paint by numbers, if that makes any sense. Not egregiously bad, but just not very evocative. It was like finishing a can of Pringles. You get there and just feel 'eh' after. I'd give it a 3.3/5, because, hey, I am a space nerd who loves neat and accurate technical details.
