Another solid novel by Sawyer. I've read more than a few. I like his books, particularly the ones featuring aliens, because he doesn't make every alien a bloodthirsty invader. It's nice to have that change of pace. Too, Sawyer uses reality to blend with fiction to make a more compelling story. On top of that, he adds hard science which means the reader actually learns something while reading. I appreciate all of these things.
Where he lets the reader down is often in letting major plotlines simply die. Not die, perhaps, in all instances, but sometimes they are resolved far too easily. The subplot involving the male protagonist's daughters was resolved in a simplistic way in this book - should have had more drama, given the importance of the thread.
I'll still read more by this author - in fact, I have at least two more on the bedside table now. Buried somewhere....
