    Good but not great

    I re-read the ebook version after my paperback copy got lost. It's a fun read although not as tight as some of Brin's other works. Still enjoyable if you don't analyze it too seriously. Call it a softer Brin effort that you will enjoy... and forget about in a few days.

    Old story, but very enjoyable

    I'm hoping there is another book in this universe.

    Practise makes perfect

    I first picked this book up at a used bookstore in Kingston, Ontario 30 years ago and lost it. I enjoyed it then and still enjoy the unconventional concepts David Brin presents in his novels.

    Great fun to read

    Having read this book years ago in translation it was great fun to reread in the original language. Great plot, logical and consistent storytelling. And the translator in the version I read originally really did a great job!
