Fantastic space adventure
Reviewed in the United States on February 16, 2021
I loved this book. From the very first the reader is immersed in a future that is Deep space in 2180. Teams of scavengers roam space looking for valuable space scrap. This reminded me of scenes from ‘Star Wars’ and ‘The Mandalorian’, that I have watched recently. Captain Kees deWet discovers the mythological Arc – a huge ship sent to repopulate space, that has been lost for centuries. His crew are eager to scrap it immediately, Kees wants to salvage it whole as a museum to man and to honor the doomed inhabitants of the ARC. It rang so true, that the wellbeing and fertility of all the women on board should be sacrificed by cost-cutting – radiation rendering them all sterile. But not quite all – one woman sequestered away from the others was not rendered barren.
