Although I am a long-time science fiction fan, Mr. Hamilton's work was new to me. Starting with a cracklingly funny introduction, where two young scientists using wormholes beat the official government expedition to be the first humans on Mars, and moving on to a later struggle of humanity with an imaginative form of hostile intelligent life, this is an enjoyable novel with many strands of stories woven together, but fitting well.
I purchased this as a gift for my wife, but she cannot listen to it. She says the narrator is so inept and inappropriate for this remarkable book, it pains her to listen. The company that released this needs to be told to re-record it with a narrator sensitive to the nuances of the language and the story. I wish I could get our money back.
