TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 8 June 2007

When it was first published I loved it and I still do after re-reading it recently.

The 'Hardness' of the SF does not obstruct the story for me, on the contrary. The avoidance of dumb stuff eliminates a "D'oh!" of disbelief when a less-educated author pulls a blooper. Makes for a smoother ride.

It's a well worked out (given the data available to the author at the time) realisation of a highly unusual world and its peoples - of varying and interesting character.

The mission and its kicker conclusion provides a thread linking this Gulliveresque exploration into high gravity regions.

It works for me. Major league SF.
