This was an enjoyable book, very much in the classic Bob Shaw style: someone has/discovers an Earth/Universe-changing secret, someone else has a vested interest in making sure that the secret doesn't get widely known and a palaver ensues....

The characters seem to be nicely fleshed out - they have realistic problems (within the context of the book), and their drives and motivations seem consistent with what we know about them.

The ceres solution is a book that I'd never heard of before, but picked up on a whim. I found it to be enjoyable and complete. It took the facts that it assumed were true and just ran with them. It is strange to read because it is in a very different style to modern sci-fi. But it was still fascinating and worth the time.
An interesting concept. An alien meets a young boy with multiple peripheral neuritis. They meet again twenty years later, when the moon is about to blown up into smithereens.

The writing style, in my opinion, is quite average, but the premise was good. An enjoyable book, if a bit on the dull side for me.
