Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

There are POV problems, show-v-tell problems, even grammar and spelling problems. A whole section about losing sight of the tents is apparently repeated by accident. But all of that aside, there just isn't a story here. We learn nothing about the crew as people, so we have no reason to care that some of them die.
