It is, of course, an adventure story but it's also a love story and at times a quite humorous one. Pimsol Andert's escape from an inter-galatic transporter on which he is indentured and his pursuit of Mirabel Wirthey, the clone daughter of the ship's female clone commander is the stuff of the plot but it is the individual adventures that Pim and his lady love must survive that are the meat of the book and those adventures are populated by a conglomeration of weird and fascinating characters, starting with a love lorn mollusk the size of a truck and continuing with bizarre bicyclists who copulate with trees, cyborg pirates, feral non humans who bargain like Orchard Street peddlers, the universe's oldest living courtesan and a vicious metallic animal, Mirabel's pet, who befriends Pim and defends him throughout the story.
It's a great cast, a clever story and a fun read.
This was a fun, inventive read with plenty of differences to set it apart from other SciFi stories. The characters and plot evolves and changes sometimes as expected often in a new interesting direction. Worth taking the time to read.
