This is a hard science novel full of interesting ideas both scientific and social. Easy to read and thought provoking. However I grew tired of it- somehow not enough characterization and somewhat repetitious.

I thought this was boring for most of the book but it was also a good book. It was a straight up scientific science fiction with no confusion with added romance, or dramatic adventure. It took a bit to figure out what the philosophical bent was but once I did I appreciated what the author had done with the narrative. This is not an emotional or relational book at all but one that focuses on a mystery and the desire to solve it.

This book could have one of the highest drops from beginning to end in my sci-fi reading experience. It is a regular occurrence for a book, especially sci-fi, to have an interesting setup and then the playout and payoff level off or even stumble at the end.

This book has some of the coolest 'hard sci-fi' setup you can find in the first part. And he keeps expanding on it as things develop. But then, you kind of expect more to happen and instead it keeps ambling along. And then by the end, there is some action, but it's pretty tame, and the end comes to a pretty pat conclusion (which isn't that surprising if you know anything about Hogan's libertarian beliefs), but still a pretty sizable drop from all the interesting places the story and science could have gone after the setup.… (mere)

A cardboard cast of characters, most of whom you'd recognize from other Hogan books with the names changed to protect the authour, and a plot that never wanders too far from exactly what you're expecting. The one somewhat interesting idea is presented (forcefully, without any subtlety whatsoever) over and over again. Skip this one and move on.
