    Persecuted refugees from six separate alien races have migrated to the idyllic planet Jijo. And despite their incredible diversity, the inhabitants live together in blissful harmony. However, settlement on Jijo is illegal - and it's only a matter of time before the residents of this forbidden paradise are discovered by the galactic powers-that-be.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    It is a long invovled series and there are some very interesting twists. The book does have some interesting analogies but it simply took too long to get there.


    What was most disappointing about David Brin’s story?

    I wanted to find out what the dolphins found but the book took too long to set it up.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His voices were very annoying.


    What character would you cut from Brightness Reef?

    none.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Sci Fi but I am not interested in the up lift of animals. The dynanmics between the alien races was interesting.
