Too bad Vernor Vinge didn't write this book before A Fire Upon the Deep. It would have been a good introduction.

Good character development, good action. Well-developed history. Alien cultures and aliens strange enough to require a bit of imagination.

Such a rich cast that it needed a list of characters, though to be helpful it would have had to give things away.

Ron I haven't checked the library. I enjoyed Fire to give this a try.

If they don't have it, I'll be happy to borrow yours. ;-)
