At the end of the 22nd century, Earth has become one vast city, governed by the Han (Chinese). There has been two hundred years of peace and stability. But a faction within the city/world is agitating for change, reopening the space program. After all there are between 30 and 40 billion people populating the planet.

Is peace and stability ... stagnation? Is change for change's sake good for humanity? Are there room for dreams anymore? This book is epic in scope, and is only the beginning.

I recommend this book and give it four stars.
