I love a good ghost story. Even better I love a story about a mysterious ship of unkown origins. I was hoping for something similar to Rondivous With Rama by Authur C. Clark or Ringworld by Larry Nivan. I was a little disapointed.
The story was very well writen. Sometimes being a bit over complicated. If you can use a simplier word to explain something why use a word that makes you have to stop and think. A very good story flows. This one kind of hick ups sometimes.
And while I can wrap my mind, with a little difficulty, around the way the author choose to end this book. It is not the way I would have chose to do it. personally I'm not much for stories that out of 280 pages lead up to a 2 page explaintion of events for an ending. It could have been much better developed. So little of the ship and its function was actually explored.
I do believe it deserves better then the 5.2 rating it has so far. I give it a 7 out of 10

Not the best, but not too bad either!

The atmosphere and tension in the book is very good. The writing is fairly average but the plot is interesting. Worth reading
