Always a pessimistic writer, Haldeman creates a rustic late nineteenth century yarn and then lobs in a homage to Olaf Stapledon's Starmaker and makes everything better, or at least different.... Not a patch on the Forever War or All My Sins Remembered, it proceeds better than Worlds Enough and Time or Forever Peace, and does not leave you disappointed. If you are new to Haldeman, stick with the classics first.

I am a fan of J.H. mostly, but provided you don't expect too much from this novel you won't be disappointed.It starts off with a very realistic and detailed (you feel there) backdrop.It leads to :- here you have to form your own opinion.All I will say it is not what you expect.Not profound but as a light read on a sunday afternoon on a sunlounger with a beer in your hand, enjoyable.

Up to normal standard, even if not The Forever War.
