    Very dry

    The idea is a good one, and a really great story could be made from it, but the way its written its morre like the outline of a story. No details at all, bad dialog, and absolutely NO emotional impact at all! Give this to a real writer and it will shine, this version? Was like reading a tech manual..... I'm so glad it was free....

    nice ideas

    But difficult to follow in regards to character identity. Choppy storytelling and unrealistic dialog. Not for me.

    Couldn't finish

    The writing style is elementary at best. There's no emotion and I was unable to finish it.

    Waste of Time

    The writing style is bad and choppy, the idea is fully underdeveloped, and there are many errors. I read the reviews and decided to give it a try; it was a terrible choice. Don't listen to the people who recommend it!

    Awesome

    Why people don't like this, or why they have conversations on the REVIEW PAGE I don't know. I do know that if you love sudo science, like I do, then you should be able to ignore the NONEXISTENT errors and bad writing style! Nothing is wrong with it you (should) know!

    Good overall

    The writing wasn't great, but maybe it just wasn't my style.
    It took a few chapters to really get into it, but eventually I did.
    The overall story was good, but lacked some detail. However, it is only the authors first book, and it was pretty good considering.
    I would reccomend AstroTown to someone who was looking for quick, easy to read book. It also helps that it's free!

    3stars for the sci fi, but writing neds help

    The science and political feelings are spot on and grat ideas, but I think we are suffering from translation issues to English. But even as the character struggles to match rmotion to memory, so does the reader struggle to find emotion or care about these characters.

    Good idea, poorly written

    The idea is stellar, along the lines of Brave New World. The writing itself is stunted and lacks even basic emotion. It seems as though it was written by someone whose first language is not English, or was translated by someone with limited understanding of English.
