Review: Delta-v

Delta-v Delta-v by Daniel Suarez
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Like this author a lot, and had this pre-ordered for a price well above my usual 10 Eur price limit.
Was it worth it? Just about, as I was in the mood of reading a good SF book, so, ok, but my guess is, you could wait for the price to drop, it will be SF for a few years to come and not be surpassed by real life events, even though some are currently being prepared to become reality.

Hard near-future-SF, sometimes gritty, very well thought out and detailed in its realism and world-building.
In parts not very suspenseful and also some things that happen are obvious and foreseeable, some twists though I did not guess.
Not to spoil the plot, but I was thinking at least one of the crew would be a traitor and try to sabotage the mission - well there was not.
Would have given 4 stars, but it was well rounded and had a "further reading"
section, so I gave 4.5 stars rounded to 5.
Recommended although it took too long for my liking and could have been more suspenseful.
