In 'Migration' David York will make you say that again. And this time probably out loud.
I am not a sci-fi reader, but I liked this book and I am glad I downloaded it, and I highly recommend it.
I hope that David York will continue writing.
But is this altruism on the part of an alien, very technologically superior intelligence, or is there a hidden agenda at work? I found it a gripping and fascinating read to discover the outcome for the earthly settlers.
Obviously, given the subject matter, the author is painting on a vast canvas (for example, the size of the spacecraft needed for the migration). He solves many of the logical (and logistical) problems associated with mass space travel - not to mention the question of the time needed to travel distances measured in light years - very neatly, keeping the narrative safely on the right side of the line you always get in sci-fi between reasonable plausibility and absurdity.
And at the very end there's a really clever plot twist that's the ultimate irony. Sci-fi lovers will certainly lap up this very imaginative, rather cautionary tale, I'm very confident.
I recommend it highly.
