Phenomenal, and one of the best portraits of a galaxy teeming with exceedingly strange life I have ever read. Martin's Thousand Worlds, in general, but especially here, is a universe that allows man, but is not necessarily *for* him. It is eerie, and though GRRM has written some scary stuff, nothing may be quite as scary as this.

What a horrible planet! I found it so boring and depressing initially that I had to put the story away for a while. But then all of a sudden it became so much better, it changed gear completely and the ending was of the most creepy things I've read in years(?). Funny how the same was the case with House of the Worm, another GRRM story I initially disliked but then loved at the end.

Clear House of the Undying reference here. Only worse.

Es un relato interesante y me gustaron mucho las razas alienígenas que aparecen en él así como la manera en que la historia es contada a través de flashbacks, pero en momentos se siente como que el protagonista solo va de un lado para otro sin un objetivo fijo y eso de dejar un final abierto no me agradó mucho en este caso.

No se, quizá solo sea yo pero no me gustó mucho.
