The Explorer - James Smythe

The Explorer - James Smythe

I somehow liked this book. It's a strange story. Right from the start you learn that all of Cormac Eastons crewmembers died. One after the other. Then Cormac is alone on this space ship and nothing really happens. Then this time loop happens and Cormac sees his journey again. And he gets to know why all his crewmates died.

 

I cannot explain why this story got me. Cormac is a strange narrator. He is not so entertaining as the Martian Mark Watney. He is quite the opposite. He also lacks some empathy. But I liked the dark atmosphere and I wanted to know what happend at the end. So, I quite enjoyed it.
