I typically listen to thrillers and adventurous science fiction stories, so this is not my typical reading material, but I've always liked Elizabeth Moon. I was a bit doubtful starting this book, but it immediately caught my attention and kept it. The narrator is great at portraying Lou's thought process, and his concerns and the things that made him relaxed and/or happy. Maybe part of what kept my attention was the adventure Lou experienced as his life changed, becoming more complicated, and requiring that he meet the new challenges and eventually make some tough decisions. His experience had many similarities to those of explorers on a new planet developing solutions to deal with unexpected dangers and alien landscapes. In any case, I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in psychology, social interactions, and also to readers who just enjoy an interesting adventure.
