's review
Jan 27, 2008

really liked it
bookshelves: science-fiction
Read in October, 1997

[from my book lover's journal; gestational notes for a review that never happened]
Setting=Earth & a new satellite (former asteroid), 2005.
Judith Hoffman="the Advisor" to U.S. govt/presidents as science expert
Garry Lanier=former pilot, head of U.S. involvement w/the Stone
Pavel Mirsky=Russian military guy
Patricia Luisa Vasquez=young physicist called to help figure out the big Question posed by the Stone
Olmy=main character among many people indigenous to the Stone & the many other required people for a book of this length

[10 years later: i remember it being "hard SF" and liking it but not much more; not even a GLIMMER of what "the big Question" might've been]
