A nice sci-fi story with lots of math for interstellar communication, and sociology of future civilizations. I think it might be the first in a trilogy, which might redeem the ending. Also it never quite got to the Big Idea the author wrote about on However it had a great line (on the first page!) that will stick with me for a long time: "At that age, when one reads the books that live in one's heart forever..." What a great way to describe why no one can ever talk me down from my fanboy love for Lord of the Rings, Wheel of Time, and other series that may not always hold up.
