These books are all about social evolution, and he does a great job of showing the steps of that evolution in an interesting story.
There are many good scenes but I link the one in the beginning of the book where Celdon establishes the foundation by making it easy for the empire simply to give them a worthless planet yet its exactly what he wants.
Its a good read much more about the energy economy and what's going on and how complicated it is.
Very rich charters, micro and macro details well merged to keep the story interesting. The booked on based on technology that is perhaps not too far off.
I like Dennis, a behind the seen guy very important in the book just like the real world but has little of glory, like in the real world.
Too long to read this in one sitting but it is gripping enough that I stay up too late listening to it.
I've listened to a lot but I would say it's in my top 10 percent!
Well unlike most other stories about the end of the world when the world ends the story does not.
As you read the book you get a range of emotions. You start at excited, move to scared mixed with dread, followed by hope and a good feeling at the end. It really great the way the show you have different people react and how different people are need for different societies.
Its slow in the beginning but well worth it.
Excellent Science Fiction
Bowman, mostly because the most interesting stuff happens to him
He says the chapters, so many times in audio books they don't announce the chapters or provide a break between sections.
Captured the wonder and excitement of ETs
