I have no idea what this author was thinking when he wrote this book. Maybe he was on drugs or a little retarded at the time he was writing it. No wonder he couldn't find anyone who would publish it. Although I took about 6 months to read a 273 page book which is way too long and at one point I just felt like putting the book down forever I decided that I had to find out what was going to happen by the end of the book.
Ghost starts out on a far future Earth with the main character named Shetland returning from space. The world is obsessed with conserving energy because unfortunately they're running out of resources. Humans generally hate people who waste energy specially if they're what they call spacers. Shetland has come back to Earth for his mandatory space leave but when he meets with his commanding officer he ends up getting a promotion to captain a ship called the Meg II. His mission is to travel to the far edges of the universe through time on this ship which is fueled by emotion. The goal is to find resources for the energy deprived Earth.
Shetland gets set up with a crew of varying skill then the book fast forwards two years later after all their training is done. The author decided to skip through all the training which could have made the book more interesting to read and develope the characters better than he did. There are strange rules on the Meg II such as anyone could have sex with each other at anytime. They called it stress relief and recreational activity haha after the ship takes off from Earth it practically felt like the book had no direction. They travel through time but stay in one place. They end up finding something that could help Earth but then the book ends abruptly.
It's a relief to be done with this book. I'm probably just going to throw it away.
