Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SF I'm not sure the author was completely sure what the purpose of this novel should have been. For the most part, it feels like a setup of the world that he's created in the Uplift Saga. This is the strength of the novel. The idea that a civilization must be 'uplifted' to full participation in the galaxy (after thousands of years of service) is interesting and I'm certain the conflicts that could arise from this would make a great story. But the main plot of the novel centers around the sabotage of a scientific expedition. The two are only loosely connected. And those connections come in some rather boring exposition. Regardless of its flaws, I'll be continuing with the next 2 Hugo-winning novels in this series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An introduction to an amazing universe This book is a great introduction to the uplift saga. It's a fun read on its own, too.
