    Too much soap opera, too little SciFi

    The opening chapter is fascinating but the story veers from it's SciFi course into the everyday world of boy meets girl and uninteresting relationship problems.Characters who have little relevance to the central story are partially developed when there is no need for their bakground stories at all. The scenes with the aliens are too few and far between. The book holds your attention only because you think that at any moment the interesting part will begin. When the book ends you are not sorry. Not Clarke's best work. Try 2001 or the Rama books.

    Fails to live up to it's potential

    This could have been a great book, but it isn't. There are a few good bits, a few places where you think 'NOW it's gonna get good', but then it lets you down. Then there are the endless pages of flashbacks into the past lives of the characters. Endless disussions of the characters' deepest feelings. Do we really care about all this minute detail? Some might, but I find it quite dull. How can this be? How could one of Science Fiction's greatest authors have written such a clunker? He didn't. The co-author did. That's the only explanation I can come up with. I have read every SF book ACC has ever written, and enjoyed all of them. Until this one. Is it just a coincidence that his first joint effort with this co-author is one of his most disapointing books ever? I don't think so, but that's just my opinion. Read it yourself then let me know what you think.
