1.What would happen in this non-violent world if someone tried to steal from someone else, e:g: by shoplifting? Would the owner of the goods be able to stop the thief? Or what if someone entered your house and stole the TV while you were watching it?
2. There was an instance where a scorpion tried to sting someone and was prevented from doing so by the non-violence rule. Would this apply if you were to torment an animal so that its only response would be to attack out of self-defence?
3. It seemed that a consequence of the non-violence rule was that meat production had been banned, and everyone had become vegetarian, yet the chief villain was eating a chicken kiev at one point. I assume the bird died from natural causes.
Overall, not a very satisfying read, and I've seen enough mixed reviews of this author's work to put me off buying any more.
Finally, and to be fair, this applies to many other books by many other authors. Why is it that in so many cases, the glowing testimonials that appear on covers and just inside, mostly refer to other books by the same author. I want to know about the one I'm going to read now, not how wonderful his/her previous stuff was.
Interestingly, I only finished reading this about 4 days ago but it's already fading from memory, so it didn't hold my attention like other books or engage me as well as it could have.
Of course there are opposition to this, both human and alien, but it is rendered ineffective by the good aliens without much effort.
We follow a number of humans in this fantastic change during more than three decades. It is a very well crafted story and Mr Brown has built an interesting world populated with real and convincing people. The Story gets hold of you and you want to know if they will succeed or if all will ultimately fail. I have to confess that you could see the developments in advance but still it was well wort reading and another fine book by Mr Brown.
But in the end you sit down and wonder, is this really heaven or would I be bored stiff if I lived there? I probably would but for many others it might be just what they want.
