It was sighted three years ago in the southern sky. An object one hundred kilometers across, originating from the Octans constellation, on a trajectory for our sun. Now its journey is almost over. And humanity s journey is about to begin.
As the Near-Earth Object dubbed Keanu approaches, two manned vehicles race through almost half a million kilometers of space to reach it first and land on the frozen, desolate surface: NASA s Destiny, originally designed for flights to the Moon and Mars, and the untested lunar ship Brahma, representing the Russian-Indian-Brazilian Coalition. Both crews have orders to do whatever it takes to triumphantly claim Keanu as their own. But when the competing missions both arrive on the contested entity, they find that Keanu is much more than a simple rock hurtling through the blackness. It has been sent toward Earth for a reason. A vastly more intelligent race is desperately attempting to communicate with our primitive species. And its interstellar courier carries a message that the very core of humanity has responded to since time began."

To be honest, I use audio books because there are books that I would like to be passingly familiar with but just won't ever sit down to read. Most if not all science fiction fits into that category for me. I used to read it, but really find it unbearable now. Mostly. If not completely unbearable. But to be honest, this one fits into the category of the Unbearable. Yes, I can acknowledge that I didn't make it all the way through, but I did reach the point where I knew it was going to be just like pulling teeth, but less than productive, as the real 'pulling teeth' might be at this stage of my life. I tried but after a disk of it and some, I just have to say that if I have to listen to one more word of this genre-fulfillment, I will die.
