Book Review – Beacon 23: Part 5: Visitor

5 stars. I got suckered in to the Beacon 23 series by Hugh Howey’s sparse and effective writing, thinking it was going to be an enjoyable tale about a man running from his past to the far corners of space. With the fifth and final installment, Visitor, Howey shows that the whole time he’s had a meaningful, epic tale in mind. Our beacon operator, Digger, must confront the greatest choice of his life, one with gut-wrenching impact. Howey’s talent for bringing this story home is remarkable, and I really enjoyed reading this as a serial.
