    Great Si Fi

    I really enjoyed this book. It was highly readable and the philosophical problems that are explored are very compelling. Very good.

    Favorite sci-fi book... and I've read a lot

    This is my favorite sci-fi book. It is an exercise in what good sci-fi does: change one single thing, and play out how that changes the lives of individuals and society at large. The technology to travel in time, but only in one direction, changes everything in very unexpected (but logical) ways. Crime becomes very different, wars are fought by societies across the gulfs of time. Two thumbs up!

    much better than the book that preceded it

    The peace wars was a little dull in places. But this book was much more interesting in the fairly extensive exploration of the possibilities of two technologies introduced in the first book.

    Having started on Vinge with "A Fire Upon the Deep", I have to say that this earlier work doesn't compare with the writing in his later work. Still a decent read, however.

    Tayler

    Im leaving and quite honestly i dont know if i will be back. I feel like im taking the cowards way out, but i dont think our relationship is working anymore. We just seem like we're drifting apart and it just isnt the same anymore. I know your going to hate me and im sorry for that. I think you deserve someone that isnt an emotional wreck like me. Im not leaving because of anything you did. You are a great husband and a good friend and a great dad. I just feel like its my time to leave this place. Its caused more hurt than anything lately. You will always have a special place in my heart and if i have a son, his name will probably be Alec because it will be a constant reminder of a caring, loving guy. Take care and be good to your brothers. Let Phil dance and always remind Max to take his meds. I hope you go to college and find the cure for cancer. If you do, i would be able to say i knew you before you were famous. You will probably forget me, but thats cool too. I love you and you will always have a special place in my heart. I hope you find someone that will love you and care for you and give you everything you want and more. Have a good life and i wish you a great future. ~With Love, Tayler.
