I enjoyed the book. It had the air of a B movie which is my favorite kind. Heroes, tough talk, Red White, and Blue thinking....I will read more.
As a ham who has read thousands and thousands of science fiction books and dozens of amateur radio books I am going to give a honest critical review of the book EQUINOX. I downloaded it onto my kindle from Amazon kindle unlimited. First off I gave EQUINOX 4 stars. It is well above average, a good fast paced enjoyable read and worth buying. I read it in two days. It is NOT a blockbuster 5 star science fiction blended amateur radio book. However, DM Barrett has blended science fiction and amateur radio well. Funny "Spark Gap/CW" slight blunder. There was a problem with the book. It was either sloppy proof reading or irregularities with the kindle download. An estimated twenty times words were broken up or thrown together. This was only a very minor irritation and I was able to glace over and know exactly what was being said. In conclusion buy the book. Its a good read but don't expect a 5 stars science fiction masterpiece.
Both of those issues are addressed earlier in the thread.

Equinox has been in print, eBook, and audio formats for six months. After over 13,000 copies sold with only one return, I'd say that the few negative curmudgeon opinions are much in the minority. But, it's good to hear from the minority.
After a year in print and 25,000 copies sold, it was worth the effort.
