Good and exciting idea with unpleasant characters. One of those books in which the beginning and the first half were better than the ending.

I have never listened to an audio book before. Do you prefer audio books or physical ones? I prefer physical book but if I have to do something and I also can listen I rather listen to an audio book than music.

And congratulations to Fred Pohl, by the way, on still being alive and engaging with the fandom at the approximate age of ! A good portion of the book still holds up pretty well. The imagining parts. The setup is pretty simple: Earth discovers a mysterious alien space station built into an asteroid around, I don't remember, Venus or something. It is full of little ships. No one knows how or why the ships came to be there, but they have figured out that if you get inside one and push a button, it will take you somewhere very far away, very quickly.
Relatively speaking. It also might take you very, very far away, but not so fast that you don't run out of food and wind up arriving there dead, or with nothing to eat on the way back but your fellow shipmates. But greedy brave souls are still willing to risk these death lottery missions because a rare few of them result in the discovery of yet more alien technology, which can then be reverse-engineered and patented and everyone winds up very rich, most particularly the omnipresent Company TM. So, to borrow from nerd parlance, this is your signature BDO big, dumb object adventure.
Unfortunately, our window into this intriguing world is this total asshole. I read the book a few weeks ago and his name has been lost to the mists of time and sleep deprivation, but I remember one thing: what a douchebag. I mean, ok, he had a shitty childhood, growing up mining some unpleasant crap or another on But he gets lucky and wins the lottery, and enough money to travel to Gateway and maybe become really rich.
And the book is told in an alternating structure, so we know that while he does become really rich , it also happens in a pretty miserable fashion, and we have to sit in on his whiny sessions with his robot therapist.
