As with the first book, excellent character development and interpersonal portrayal. Highly recommended if you enjoyed the first book.
One criticism: This doesn't undermine the heart of the drama, which is interpersonal, but it did pull me out of the story a few times. The logistics of intelligence gathering in war aren't directly addressed. There are several references to "They say..." or "I've heard..." where the enemy is, which gives me the impression that the fleet is relying on rumor, rather than reconnaissance. Later, there's statements like, "We have reports...", but it's not clear what that means in practical terms. No explicit mention of reconnaissance or scouts for determining enemy movement.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes and No, the last third of the story is an emotional and sometimes irrational dialog such as the main characters destruction of all the video screens in the ship because they once showed the image of someone she knew. A major part of the story is a rolling emotional dialog taking place inside the characters head, with actions based on emotional reasons rather than the more logical.
