    Frederik Pohl was on a streak when this Hugo Award-finalist novel was published in 1980. Now back in print after an absence of nearly a decade, this unique science fiction novel is as fresh and entertaining as ever. The story begins when the hero of Gateway finances an expedition to a distant alien spaceship that may end famine forever. On the ship, the explorers find a human boy, and evidence that reveals a powerful alien civilization is thriving on a transport ship headed right for Earth....

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. It just seems to meander. Characters aren't engaging.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was glad it was over so I could listen to something better.


    Did Oliver Wyman do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes.


    Do you think Beyond the Blue Event Horizon needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No!
