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

Pro: The plot concept is a good one. Astronaut trapped by a failed experiment goes crazy and destroys everything.

Con: The writing is very poor. It's loaded with "said" bookisms, as-you-know-Bob dialogue, and attempts to represent a heavy Russian accent in text. On top of that, if you don't pay attention to the dates in the messages, the timeline is extremely confusing.
