Read this when I in high school, as a member of the Science Fiction Book Club. Got to meet the author on a book signing tour, who told me of his disappointment at the generic "disco ball" cover that got slapped on the book club edition. But it didn't stop me from enjoying it. It's a great little mystery sci-fi blend, sufficiently engaging that everyone in my family (including my Mom!) read and enjoyed the book. In our house, that's a high honor.
well, not a bad read, dystopian and futuristic, barely. Many interesting conceptual ideas, but never fully explained or resolved, these are just touched upon, sparking the readers interest, but taking you nowhere.

I picked this Science Fiction Book Club edition up used somewhere in Chicago and read it quickly. It's basically a murder mystery set in the near future, a plausible one.
eh...not bad writing but the story line was predictable...good fast read but just know you can guess what will happen before the end of the book.
Patience was ok...not what I expected...lacked something....seems like this is a revisited story...
Interesting, Honor was the person who died.
I was really suurprised with this book. I didn't expect much from it, but it was a decent little sci-fi story.
