Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Fire Upon the Deep (Zones of Thought) (Kindle Edition)
Bought this on a whim, it was one of my Amazon recommendations and I had no idea what to expect from an author I had never read anything by... obviously.
Vernor Vinge writes some of the most original and exciting characters and imagines such unique alien life. It's refreshing to have an adventure that doesn't rely on visions of a computer induced dystopia and uses the complexity of personal interaction to drive a story.
