Mark Twain wrote: Uncle Abner said that the person that had took a bull by the tail once had learnt sixty or seventy times as much as a person that hadn't, and said a person that started in to carry a cat home by the tail was gitting knowledge that was always going to be useful to him, and warn't ever going to grow dim or doubtful.

Book Review

Waypoint: A Game Of Drones
by C. F. Waller

Category:  Science Fiction

Average Rating:  3.0

Stacy's life is in free-fall, her daughter killed by a drunk driver, her husband taking his own life only months later. She finds herself clutching a handgun, searching for a sign that tomorrow will be any better than today. At this auspicious moment her cell phone rings, bringing an offer that may postpone her soul searching. The discovery of an airplane graveyard containing a dozen commercial airliners is shocking. When the deep-sea salvage cameras reveal them to be virtually undamaged under six-thousand feet of water in the Indian Ocean, theories abound. Who put them there? How are they still in one piece? What reason could there be? Stacy is about to learn the answers to those questions, as well as things she'd prefer to forget. Along the way, she'll have to solve this puzzle, and many more to prevent an even larger disaster from happening.

This book contains the following: tiny robots, falsified government identification, autonomous drones, ATM malfunctions, mid-air collisions, fear of sharks, Australian bar pranks, pointing guns out the window of a moving plane, video games, Area-51, milk shake do's and don'ts and everyone's possible need of at least one good friend.

This story is really far-fetched. It's not well-explained science fiction. But the characters are well-drawn and just quirky enough to be interesting. And there's enough suspense to keep one listening.

There are two endings. An epilogue follows the first ending, but it's not necessary to the story or its conclusion and would have been best omitted.

J. Scott Bennett's performance is very good, although there were places where I found it difficult to follow who was speaking during dialog. More distinction between character voices would have been helpful.

NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
