Great read, 19 Jan. 2013
This is my first book review. I'm 68 and have been reading for entertainment since I was 8 years old (continuously). SciFi is my favourite genre because the only limitation is the authors imagination. David brin has no limits on his imagination. This book is, without doubt, one of the better reads I have enjoyed. The characterisation is great. The story line is great. The scope is great. I really enjoyed this book and have just bought the second trilogy. Definitely recommended for SciFi fans.
