Summary

Zero Point is the second audiobook in Neal Asher's near-future science fiction Owner series.

Earth's Zero Asset citizens no longer face extermination. Thanks to Alan Saul, the Committee's despotic network is in ruins, and its robotic enforcers lie dormant. But the ruthless Serene Galahad sees an opportunity to grab power. On Mars, Var Delex fights for Antares Base's survival while the Argus Space Station hurtles towards the red planet. And Var knows whoever, or whatever, trashed Earth is still aboard. She must not only save the base but deal with the first signs of rebellion.

And aboard Argus Station, Alan Saul's mind has expanded into the local computer network. In the process he uncovers the ghastly experiments of the Humanoid Unit Development, the possibility of eternal life, and a madman who may hold the keys to interstellar flight. But Earth's agents are closer than Saul thinks, and the killing will soon begin.

Excellent trilogy of quality writing and narration

I have just finished the whole trilogy in about 10 days. It's been a while since I had a story as well written and as well narrated as this was. And having said that, I'm not going to pick holes in either as some reviewers do. I just enjoyed the concept, the continuity, the characters and the excellent narration. Best sifi writing I have experienced in a long time. Thanks.

... and so it continues

hand-to-hand combats in vacuum, space station. robots with morals, humans without morals and psychotic running earth by killing more. it's spine chilling of how the current present is so closely heading towards the fiction of this novel.

Gripping story

Can’t wait to start the next one. Peter Noble has a great voice and helps to visualise the characters.

one of his best books

some books just work well. this one has great pace, and although it's not set too far in the future it remains to be a fantastic Sci-Fi adventure.

Why do I sympathise with the bad guy?

Is the killing of one person ok if it saves 10? Is the killing of billions of humans ok if it saves the human race from extinction? If we cannot educate humans to stop having 3 or more children then the world will not survive; so is compulsory sterilisation justified? So how bad is the baddie who does these things? This book makes me think that this is our future, our choice, our destiny when we are too self centred to correct it now!

Lot of death and nefarious goverment doing this and that in these series, but books are surprising and enjoyable to follow.
