really liked it
bookshelves: science-fiction, adventure

I would have liked to have given this book four and a half stars but that is not an option. The only reason I did not rate this as a five star book is that it does not quite stand alone as a novel. You really need to read Mote in God's Eye to follow the back stories of several characters.

Overall this is a great read with well developed characters and aliens that come across as alien even if they have similarities to humans. A very good book to keep your attention and satisfy the intelligent sci-fi fan. Buy it. You'll like it.
