I later read the full book and really enjoyed it. However the book contains so much detail that is lost in the abridgment. I'd recommend waiting for the unabridged version or reading the book.
Greg Bear has invoked his genius once again by creating this wonderful thought provoking masterpiece. It confronts you directly, and forces you to consider the possibilities. It makes you question real from fiction. You find yourself asking what if. I was thoroughly entertained and mentally challenged as well. This is why I enjoyed it so much, because its topic was both enticing and riveting. Masterfully orchestrated, griping you all the way to the end.
I loved the unabridged Book on Tape version, so I bought this to refresh my memory before listening to Darwin's Children. I agree that it is greatly abridged, but it was well done. My daughter absolutely devoured it. And the reader, Stefan Rudniki, is fabulous, even better than the very good reader of the original.
