    "A great discovery"

    It's a fantastic book with a well-crafted plot that takes you through the galaxy with a main character you feel that you know immediately. This is space opera in the best sense of the term.
    t is a tour of a galactic empire by a young man who has received a scholarship to the Imperial university. Most of the book is his trip from the backwater planet where he grew up to the University on Mars. Travel can be complicated in this imagined future and several adventures break out along what should have been a routine trip.
