This would be a great book for adults or young adults who like their science fiction on the lighter side, intelligent with a sense of fun.

Jack Halloway is a likable, lazy sort of everyman, a surveyor on a planet being exploited by big business for its natural resources. He (and the dog he's taught to set off explosives) discover a sentient species he calls the "fuzzys", whose very existence put him in a moral quandary: which is more "right", enormous profit or protecting an innocent (and extremely personable) native society.

This was a very fun read, fairly quick, and ultimately satisfying. In particular, the legal gymnastics in the final courtroom scene are a real treat.

Many, many thanks to the publisher for providing me with a copy to review through the First Reads program.
