Jack McDevitt, Chindi

Chindi is my first Jack McDevitt book. Somewhat interesting, but it may be a while before I pick up another of his books. This book is a mix of ponderous adventure ("will they ever get off the alien ship before it leaves the system forever?") and ponderous first contact ("they look like angels, until they rip several of our crew to shreds without warning!"). At 511 pages, this could have been a lot shorter. On the other hand, I've seen worse. And it didn't bore me so much I gave up on it. I'll pick up another of McDevitt's books eventually and see if he's got something else in him. Probably will avoid the other three books in this series though.
