This is David Brin's best book in quite a few years. OK, I know that's not saying a lot, but I found this to be a worthy and enjoyable space opera. The pacing is all wrong -- the first half of the book drags on and is boring -- but keep reading, because it gets better. The last half of the book is fascinating and thought-provoking. It's basically a take on the Fermi paradox (think Alastair Reynolds), but with a bunch of new twists I haven't seen before. Good stuff, once you get past the boring beginning.… (mere)

Unconventional first contact story touching a lot of actual or near future issues that humanity could have to deal with. Much more anchored in what might be physically possible than other first contact stories, and follows the situation over a significant period of time allowing the possibility to touch many aspects and situations and see characters in evolution. Due to the size gives a bit the feeling of connected short stories (although the main topics remain central), as some characters appear for short stretches not to be talked again after or development that looked important at some point are set aside. Very enjoyable overall and thought provoking.… (mere)
