while i like the writing style and enjoyed the tone of the novel, I do think that Star Well is the best of this set and the only one I can really recommend. there is a point at which there is very little actual scifi going on and it is mainly about the characters etc which is fine, but there is also a bit of the diminishing return aspect too, as the story line gets to be hard to follow because there isn't much that can be pointed to as plot/action etc. like the writer though and so will try Rite of Passage again, liked it very much when I read it long ago. I would listen to SW again some time, but probably wouldn't continue with these 2 sequels. Too bad Panshin didn't publish the 4th in this set, Universal Pantograph, as I would like to see where that went. There is so much i like about this set, but still wish Thurb, and Masque had a little more Star Well action and plot in them.
