    Joe Haldeman tells the tale of Carmen Dula’s six-year journey through space to the home of The Others, where she represents Earth in hopes of forging a peace accord. But due to Relativity, 50 Earth years have passed since Carmen left. And while humans have been busy constructing an enormous flotilla of warships, The Others possess power and technology far beyond anything Earth can imagine.

    Story

    Haldeman has a great track record writing SciFi. Starbound only enhances his reputation. One of the most interesting and entertaining characteristics of this book is the use of multiple narrators. The integration of the characters, text, and narrators is so well done this might qualify as a dramatization. The only reason it could not qualify as a dramatization is the narrators do not assume different roles exclusively. Still, the way the author has woven the use of the multiple narrators into the fabric of the story is commendable and makes this one of the best books I have listened to in this genre.

    Frieda Klein is a solitary, incisive psychotherapist who spends her sleepless nights walking along the ancient rivers that have been forced underground in modern London. She believes that the world is a messy, uncontrollable place. The abduction of five-year-old Matthew Farraday provokes a national outcry and a desperate police hunt. And when his face is splashed over the newspapers, Frieda cannot ignore the coincidence: one of her patients has been having dreams in which he has a hunger for just such a child.

    Late at night on a notorious high-rise estate in the London Borough of Hackney, a white van is being driven erratically. The driver is pulled over by the police and questioned. A woman on the street after a long night of drinking never makes it home. A suspect, an arrest, a confession - a case closed? Five years earlier, a thirteen-year-old girl disappeared in broad daylight on a busy London street.
