Book Review – Beacon 23: Part Two: Pet Rocks [Beacon 23]

More introspective and psychological than Little Noises, the second installment of Hugh Howey’s Beacon 23 impresses with excellent prose and deeper characterization. The beacon operator deals with the events that end the previous chapter, which forces him to confront his own war-fuelled demons. We get hints of a far bigger story than just the tale of a man running to the edge of the galaxy to escape his past. The core of this book’s plot is deeply silly, yet somehow Howey brings Pet Rocks home in style.
