3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - In Parts..., 28 Dec. 2003
This review is from: Glory Season (Bantam Spectra Book) (Hardcover)
I found Maia's voyage of discovery around her strange, female clone-dominated world very enjoyable, but I don't think it is one of David Brin's best books. She, a summer "var" conceived the old-fashioned way, certainly grows as a character as her adventures continue, but she does seem to spend a lot of time in various captivities, and while major and exciting events do unfold around her towards the end, too often the best bits happen "off camera" - having her read a hurried letter from a friend is not the same as being there! The apparent death of a major character is rather inconclusive, and the book does not really have that great an ending.
Still, the strange new world we progress through is always interesting, and Maia is an engaging character. I certainly don't regret the time I took to read the book, and will be checking out more of Brin's work soon.
