3.0 out of 5 stars A plot Revealed, 12 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Outies (Mote Series Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
I bought the kindle edition,solid sniff-able pages were not available when I ordered,so far I've found one spelling mistake,and the text to speech is robotic and offers strange pronunciation.

The story has only Kevin Renner and Ali Baba performing cameos,with a brief appearance of Lord Blaine,the main plot revolves around the future imagined Mormon religion on New Utah,a frontier world think wild west or Quentin's Patch from "The Mote in God's Eye" writ large,Moties in a primitive form have predated the First Empire,an explanation for more money in the system than there should be IS THE STORY,I could argue you can form this fiction as a 2D Green Eco-Argument or a simplistic outline of politics i the Middle East to stir thinking in young adults if stretched creatively by a Teacher.

The description of a Warrior Motie as a "Tweety Kitty".I thought, "Miffy Books", was amusing and a favourite for me.

I enjoyed it,however it is slow paced compared to "The Moat'/Gripping Hand" and if you were hoping to read about Moties from cover to cover extremely disappointing,the Kindle price at less than a third of the physical version of this tale represents value for money and unfortunately the absorption this story commands.

Three Stars because I have enjoyed it but this is a holiday/commuting/read.

The text to speech on Kindle is the same for all books.
