Another Blockbuster Hollywood of a Book
4 out of 5 stars
Zero Limit is a story revolving around Caitlin Taggart – a former war hero turned moon miner. She wants to get home to her daughter and will stop at nothing to figure out a way to do that. She is quickly forced to make a decision that could put the life of her and many others at risk. But you do anything for family, right?
I’ve been reading more books lately that feel like would make really enjoyable movies. Zero Limit was another one of those. I guess I should have expected it with a tagline about how it’s similar to a movie. Zero Limit has been on my radar since I did my ‘2018 Most Anticipated Audiobooks’ post and featured it there.
Caitlin is one of those hard to like main characters that grows on you (because she grows as a person). She wasn’t the hardest person I’ve had to like in a book but could have been up there had she not been doing things for the betterment of her daughter’s life. I don’t know what it was about her, but she didn’t seem to have anything that stood out and made her likable.
The surprising factor of this book was the political tie-ins. I can’t tell if there was a person in mind when writing with, but their story arc was a totally unexpected and nice extra in Zero Limit. I didn’t know how I was going to feel about it when it started, but it turned out to be one of my favorite parts.
Overall, I thought that Zero Limit was a well thought out book that would make a good movie. It had feelings of Gravity but also some Armageddon and other “space rock” type movies. It was a fast read that I finished quickly and enjoyed throughout.
The narration – done by Christina Traister was really well done. She added the perfect amount of emotion to this story and acted out a few small parts that would have been missing without her narration. It really added to this story and will make it more memorable.

Artemis meets Gravity in this gripping, adrenaline-fueled ride.
For war hero Caitlin Taggart, mining work on the Moon is dirty, low pay, and high risk. But no risk seems too extreme if it helps her return to Earth and the daughter she loves more than life itself. Offered a dangerous, long-shot chance to realize that dream, Caitlin will gamble with more than just her life.
By leading a ragtag crew of miners on a perilous assignment to harvest an asteroid, Caitlin could earn a small fortune. More importantly, it would give her clearance to return to Earth.
But when an unexpected disaster strikes the mission, Caitlin is plunged into a race to save not only herself, but every human being on Earth.
