Sci Fi Sci Fi! ,

very enjoyable

The book is overall very enjoyable. Do not expect a mind blowing Sci-Fi masterpiece, but a nice plot, rendered pretty well, and with two main characters that are easy to take an interest in and care about. The statement by Stephen King that Jack is the next Clarke made me expect greatness, so my expectations were too high.

On the downside, many plot points become predictable and I found the time between the obvious to be tedious and frustrating. The best comparison I can give is when you watch a horror movie and you think to yourself "don’t go into the basement you idiot”, but there is an excessivly long time spent discussing about going into the basement.

Great read

Very enjoyable romp through the universe with some very likable characters. Love this writer - I’ll be reading his next book.

Wonderful!

By far one of my favorite books of all time. McDevitt's works' greatness lies not only in his vision of the far off future, but in his wonderful ability to describe the seemingly mundane, day-to-day life of those living in that far off future--little details that most other authors often overlook or omit, but that add to the realism of the universe McDevitt places us in. If you're looking for a great read with a fascinating, thought-provoking ending, purchase this book.
