This review is from: The Forge Of God (Paperback)
I stumbled across Greg Bear and this book about 3 years ago. It really blew me away! I have re-read the book a couple of times and the emotion of the finale still bites too deep for comfort. Who says hard sci-fi cannot be for the heart as well as the head... The reworkings and discarding of familiar sci-fi themes is very clever and makes you continually have to reevaluate the book as you read on. If you have not already read this book, BUY IT! Then go out and buy EON. The only guy giving Bear a run for his money is Peter Hamilton (Reality Dysfunction, et al). It does not get better than this.
