Very enjoyable read
If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.
It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.
I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days.
The overall situation on earth and space is well described and the story and the way it evolves is highly plausible.
Although this is science fiction, the story focusses on classical "growing up" themes like moving somewhere else and what this does to a family and what opportunities this opens to all concerned.
It's a great adventure story with political intrigues and a story about friendship and love.
Thrilling new frontier adventure SciFi crime novel
A real page-turner. The main character takes getting used to which retrospectively is a good thing.
Harry evolves quite a lot and the more you read the more you appreciate his intelligence.
The setting is special to say the least. Imagine you have enough money so that everybody can have all they would ever want ... materially speaking. Would humans be happy?
Now, this book is not some utopia fantasy, but a straight hard murder mystery in an environment with very different rules which force you to think differently.
I definitely recommend you to read the book. I just ordered the sequel "Do Androids weep magnetic tears" - a cheesy title to be honest ;-) but I am looking forward to meeting Harry and Quincey again.
Too bad that you can get both books only as paperback right now. I'd have preferred to buy it in iBooks or in another eBook format as a fallback.
Eric - thanks and please keep on writing.
I never read a novel with such a complex timeline which was a fun and thrilling read, which managed to be 100% coherent and which -after 1040 pages- left me totally frustrated over the fact that I am addicted and that this is only part one! Keep going!Read the story now
