Gateway - Frederik Pohl

Adventurous prospecting in space, wrapped inside a psychiatric counselling session, basically. All the trappings of a setup to try and exploit and monetise abandoned alien technology are shown here, down to the commercial advertising surround such an enterprise.

It is a very dangerous occupation, and the main character survives mostly intact, and has to deal with what happened to the people that went with him.

3.5 out of 5
