    They first appear as a series of dots on astronomical plates, heading from Saturn directly toward Earth. Since the ringed planet carries no life, scientists deduce the mysterious ship to be a visitor from another star. The world's frantic efforts to signal the aliens go unanswered. The first contact is hostile: the invaders blast a Soviet space station, seize the survivors, and then destroy every dam and installation on Earth with a hail of asteriods.

    Flatlander says: "Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle at Their Best"

    Would you try another book from Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle and/or MacLeod Andrews?

    Have a big difference of opinion on this one. My husband enjoyed it while I did not. I do have to commend Mr. Andrews for his pronunciations and alien 'speak.' He pronounced some very difficult names with ease. The constant 'spitting' (and maybe he HAD to do this to pronounce them) was annoying to me...
    I did like his attemp at trying a novel from a different vantage point. It was just hard for me to keep up with the difficult names with the weird inflections....
    Yes, I would give him another try


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

    I didn't make it to the end-sorry


    What three words best describe MacLeod Andrews’s voice?

    Engaging


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Possibly. I did like the different 'take' of this piece
