Wrecking Party by Alastair Reynolds

I’m not sure if I just wasn’t paying overly much attention when I was reading this. Or whether it’s just not my kind of story.

Actually, my favourite part of this story was when she threatened to jump, because she was at her wits end. It was the only moment of real fight that she displayed and FINALLY made the stupid, pig headed male in this story sit up and pay attention to what she was saying. And yet, for all of that pushiness that I was really uncomfortable with, I did, ultimately enjoy this story…
