"A powerful piece of SF, with intelligent writing and big ideas."--Adrian Tchaikovsky, author of Children of Time"Fans of all kinds, one can be sure, will come to question, and stay to explore."--The Wall Street Journal "The skills honed in his YA fantasy series, Inheritance (Eragon, 2003), are on full display here in his vibrant world building, especially in the mythology of the alien tech. Paolini populates this universe with a large cast of interesting and relatable characters, and mostly avoids reductive good guy/bad guy dynamics, lending the story a sincere emotional depth. Highly recommended for fans of James A. Corey's The Expanse series and for fantasy fans willing to try space opera."--Booklist, starred review "Dazzles with otherworldly delights--and unearthly nightmares."--Newsweek
"This is Paolini's best book so far, skillfully done, brilliantly imagined and cleverly executed. It's accessible and engaging and left us wanting more."--Starburst Magazine
"Has that charm that is unique to [Paolini's] writing. The ending was fantastic, big and exciting and with the same outside-the-box thinking I now expect from one of Paolini's endings."--Novel Knight "The character cast in To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is perfection. Kira is my queen of thorns, and I would trust her with my life and with the fate of humanity."--Ink and Plasma "Sure to be one of the biggest literary moments of the year."--The Portalist "Just as he did with his fantasy series, Paolini again captured my complete attention with the sheer breadth of his imagination."--By Hook or By Book Praise for Christopher Paolini: "An authentic work of great talent."--New York Times Book Review "Paolini is a spellbinding fantasy writer."--The Boston Globe
"A breathtaking and unheard of success."--USA Today "Christopher Paolini is a true rarity."--The Washington Post "Christopher Paolini make[s] literary magic."--People "The new 'It' book of children's lit."--U.S. News & World Report

Overall summary: starts quite well but degenerates into trite rubbish. I have no idea how it ends. Life is too short to waste reading stuff like this.
Not all sci-fi has to be hard sci-fi, but this is too "soft" to really fit the genre at all -- the protagonist has a magic suit that discovers new abilities and exposition happens when the suit conjures up a vision to motivate a plot device. The shipmate characters are superficial and tokenistic.
It all just feels like something I could have got into as a teenager, but as an adult there are far better novels out there.
