For fans of The Martian, an extraordinary new thriller of the future from number-one New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Sandford and internationally known photo-artist and science fiction aficionado Ctein.
Over the course of 37 books, John Sandford has proven time and again his unmatchable talents for electrifying plots, rich characters, sly wit, and razor-sharp dialogue. Now, in collaboration with Ctein, he proves it all once more in a stunning new thriller, a story as audacious as it is deeply satisfying.
The year is 2066. A Caltech intern inadvertently notices an anomaly from a space telescope - something is approaching Saturn and decelerating. Space objects don't decelerate. Spaceships do.
A flurry of top-level government meetings produces the inescapable conclusion: Whatever built that ship is at least 100 years ahead in hard and soft technology, and whoever can get their hands on it exclusively and bring it back will have an advantage so large, no other nation can compete. A conclusion the Chinese definitely agree with when they find out.
The race is on, and a remarkable adventure begins - an epic tale of courage, treachery, resourcefulness, secrets, surprises, and astonishing human and technological discovery, as the members of a hastily thrown-together crew find their strength and wits tested against adversaries both of this Earth and beyond. What happens is nothing like you expect - and everything you could want from one of the world's greatest masters of suspense.

Thrilling SF book with some Hollywood mixed in

I enjoyed listing to this very well spoken audio book over the full length.

It is by far not the techno thriller I have expected after the description on Audible. The number and diversity of the characters really surprised me. And those are also my only complaint:
Most of those Characters are too streamlined for my taste, like they came straight from a Hollywood action movie. Even they bring action and humor into the plot, they seem often misplaced on a mission like the one described in this book

Unfortunately, this book is stultifyingly boring. I really tried to get through it since I am a big fan of John Sandford's, and I like science fiction too. But I could not even skip through it for the plot! Plus it is fill of boring stereotypes. Characters with non-Wasp names all speak with an accent. What is that about? I speak with an accent myself since I am an ex-pat, but in this performance, there is too much of ppl with accents, and the accents are poorly done too.

I enjoyed all the "Prey" books a lot! The plots, action, and repartee were great and so enjoyable that I did not mind the male-centric, jokey sex scenes. I did not feel they were sexist-

Anyway, I did not like Saturn Run.

I wish i could find more books like the "Prey" series.
