The premise was good but the execution failed. For a profound event like nuclear war, there needs to be something more than a few flickers on the horizon and a very detailed description of how high the smoke would rise. There was no buildup of suspense, nothing to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Too many unnecessary descriptions of the history of the ships involved interspersed with very dry readings of future encyclopedia entries turned what should have been an exciting narrative into a cure for insomnia.
The narrator was not the best though I think with practice he might be. He did seem to do better as the story progressed.
Character development was poor. There was background information on the characters but not enough depth on how they felt. It was almost as if they heard about the war and went "meh".
I won't be reading subsequent books. There just wasn't any excitement to the story.
