Gentry Lee does the enigmatic aliens/wow-factor thing quite well on his own, without Mr. Clarke on board. If you enjoyed the Rama stories, you'll enjoy this too.
Excellent Clarke based scifi read. Stimulating and imaginitive. What happened to dreaming of science and space? Oh yeah, TV.
When I saw this book was "set in the Rama universe", I was very excited to read it. I loved the Rama books and really wanted to continue in that same world. I was quite disappointed in the relation to the Rama mentions the Rama spacecraft a few times, and there is a group of people called The Rama Society...but that's about all the connection there is.

I went through about half of the book waiting for some major connection to appear, but it never came.

I also feel that the first half...more
I tend to go easy on Gentry Lee. He gets beat up by many sci-fi fans, and not without some cause. Unlike many ‘great’ authors, Lee is not adept at concealing that each of his books is built around one basic storyline that he keeps adapting to different characters and settings.

One of this novel’s strong points is offering a glimpse at what a colonized Mars might look like. And coming from the boys club of engineers, Gentry Lee is inclined to give us a world where gritty people work hard, swear a...more
Great Book set in the Rama Universe. If you like the how the story is told in the Rama series, this book (two actually) continues in the same manner. These two books actually ties up a loose end in the originally Rama series but still is not needed for the story. I like it because I loved the Rama series. However, if you didn't I would skip these two (Bright Messengers and Double Full Moon Night).

Recommends it for: scifi buffs, fans of Rama and Arthur C Clark
I got this for free in a pile of books given to me by a friend. It's okay. Rather predictable. Nowhere near as engaging as the Rama books which this and its sequel are an off-shoot of but it kept me interested to the end. I'm not sure if I want to read the sequel, Double Full Moon Night. It's not really calliing my name.
I believe Gentry Lee is the brainchild behind the Rama saga (the plots are much more elaborate than the original Rendevous with Rama by Clarke).

what happened to Gentry Lee? have not seen any new offering from him for quite some time. Could it be the big D?
Page-turner, but in the end, I felt like it never really gave me anything to think about. Maybe it'll all come together in part 2.
An interesting tale that test your humanity. Not really my thing though.. especially after the heroine dies. This one goes bye-bye.
W porównaniu do wcześniejszych części cyklu Rama - słaba pozycja. Gentry Lee to na pewno nie C.Clarke...
