What are the good points of Robin Parrish’s Offworld?
Action. I defy anyone to dispute this. It has some slow, pensive moments, but it's basically a lengthy chase, a struggle against superior forces and special effects.
Wit. There are some good lines here, such as, "Life is poetry. ...And the thing about poetry? It don't write itself." (p. 245)
Characterization. The characters are generally strong and realistic, and I was rooting for them. That's not as easy to achieve as you might think.
Yes, I know: short post. Long day, too. Tomorrow's post will no doubt be rather lengthy, in part for reasons not limited to the current book.
