A well produced drama. Sci-fi horror is the strength of the alien franchise and this does justice to exactly that. Conventional characters doing conventional stuff but some how keep it fresh using different locales and very very good voice acting.

Definitely worth a try.

It captures your attention in spurts and then let's you wade through the story along with the characters' innermost thought processes. It's like getting into someone's head and going along for the ride of all the thoughts.

A good book to be lost into.

Funny... Well mostly... when people dont die

Must read/listen for anyone who knows or understands the references to any of the following:

Festival of the spoken nerd
Spreadsheets
The talk about spreadsheets in the festival of the spoken nerd
Helen Arny and Steve Mould
Pi -> not Tau
Numberphile and/or Brady
Maths in engineering... any engineering
Anyone whose spouse is a rocket scientist... anyone who is a rocket scientist themself
Students... especially students
Quirky British humour
Forced bad puns
Magic square -> Parker square
The one true parabola
Dates -> its not that simple


If you dont get the references, its ok, still read/listen to the book. anyone who has, even the slightest, predisposition towards curiosity should give it a shot. Math is fun... sometimes frustrating but fun... much like anything fun in life.

Hope you have a mild chuckle and an above average time.
