User Review  - Brad - Goodreads

Brin has some interesting concepts but his writing isn't very good. There is very little description. Usually when an author is frugal with details images still form as the story progresses. But this ... Read full review

User Review  - Alexander - Goodreads

I have enjoyed a lot of Brin's work, but I don't think this early attempt stands the test of time. I read a lot of classic scifi and am not bothered by anachronisms like "phones" still hanging on ... Read full review
