    1. A worthwhile distractionA good book. Lots of little errors but it was fun and maybe even kinda brilliant. Thanks a lot, Mr.Burch!


    2. I bought that book because I read recommendations on tumblr comparing him to Banks and other great SciFi authors. So great I did.First and foremost I have to say this book is really good and I thoroughly recommend it to others.It starts slow, introducing the crew, status of the ship and mission, as well as giving some hinds of the general overall status, without going into depth of when and where and why. The book is written from different "main" character view points, which I like very much in [...]


    3. I decided to buy The Icarus Void after finishing (and loving) A Ruthless Echo, C. K. Burch's other novel (which is a COMPLETELY dissimilar book to Icarus but one I HIGHLY recommend). Icarus starts a little slow, which is good because Burch thoroughly introduces the ship and the excellent characters before getting into the white-knuckle action. Once the intensity starts it's a thrill ride to the (surprising) end. At one point I actually surprised my wife by saying "Holy s***" out loud while I was [...]


    4. I'm amending my review here, it's deserving of more explanation. Let me also note that I respect the author for taking criticism of language usage and toning it down. Any notes others made about it being very vulgar are mostly void now.This is a pretty bland and disappointing novella/book. It's not science-fiction, as nowhere will you find any attempt to explain anything, and I think that breaks away from what the intent was. Where it sounds like a science vessel coming across cosmic horror, it [...]


    5. Contest here: thetbrpile.weebly/1/post/2 I could barely put this down and only thank my lucky stars that I read this on Kindle because I think if I had read this on paper I would either have set the pages alight I was turning them so quick or else have ended up with a fistful of paper-cuts! Honestly, it is rarely that proper, grown-up Sci-Fi this good comes along and if you only read one Science-Fiction novel this year, really it needs to be this one! I guessed the very final twist right at the [...]


    6. I really liked this book. The story is just fantastic, despite all the problems my inner editor had with word choices and repetition. The pacing was a little slow at first but it picked up quickly and, honestly, the very last twist at the end made it difficult to resist re-reading the book immediately. It would have gotten five stars if not for the fact that I feel it could be benefit from better editing. Still, this is definitely one of the best books I've read in the last year. If you're into [...]


    7. The Icarus Void is like a novelization of a set of movies and games in the space horror genre. Mix Aliens, Solaris, Dead Space, and Half-Life together and you get The Icarus Void. The plot involves a spaceship on a research trip to the sun that comes across an alien artifact. They haul it into the ship for further study and all hell breaks lose.The author excels at building up the tension between characters on the ship. The pressure continually builds as you wait for the next disaster. Also, kud [...]


    8. Should have a warning about explicit languageWhile the story line was intriguing the constant profanity was way over the top. I served in three branches of the military and never had to resort to constant profanity like this. Very disappointing.
