    Thought I would never get through...

    I'm afraid I found this tedious and tiresome. WAY too much attention to every mundane detail, so that the true story - Tika's origination - becomes merely a footnote. The book was about 500 ages too long. I fear the author fell so much in love with his characters and his imagined, implausible, future Earth, that as a reader I began to find them arrogant and annoying. The sex scene which included the childrens' participation is not for the faint-hearted. Sorry, I simply did not like it.

    Started great... but then wasted it.

    St. Augustine said it best.. the story started off fantastic, and then somewhere, the author completely lost everything that made the story work. After the Old vs. Young Academics war story, basically, every character became unlikeable. I understand that the growth of the main child character was vital, but at some point, she went from a "person" to a control-freak character that completely lost any sympathy she had, and become completely unlikable. Then the author felt it necessary for EVERYONE to kowtow to her and no character strong enough to counter balance her? It was as if the author was writing that only one person was "good enough" to rule over everyone, whether or not they deserved to be.

    As for the sex-scenes, did they really have a purpose? You could have easily have gone through the idea of the sexual liberation without a tell "every move" sex scene, and it seemed like the author wasn't happy to have the one big scene See the part about Tika obtaining her father's sperm, I was getting to the point where I was cringing for fear of coming across scene like that when i got to certain paragraphs.

    There was so much potential for the book, but once you get to about the 350 page mark or so, you just keep hoping it's going to end, because it's more like tedium

    Unexpected good read

    This book was a great read, hard to put down once I started. It took a few pages to become accustomed to the writing style, that is all.

    Good read

    I read the original. The first one seamed to move along more smoothly. I do not remember being offended by anything however I guess many others were. I still found it very entertaining as well as thought provoking. I would love to live in such a society as this. I have no idea where I would fit in but none the less the worlds problems are solved in my humble opinion. I am now going to read book #2. That is after the 1st of the month when I get my retirement check. I retired from public service as a peace officer. The system of government in this novel would be much better than what we deal with today.

    Awful!!

    I have never run across a fiction novel that I couldn't finish, until this book. The book is about as exciting as watching paint dry. The book is like a boring personal diary that no one else would find interesting except the author. I struggled to get half way through the book and that was with a lot of skimming. I finally decided to DELETE the book from my Nook without going further. Through out what I struggled to read, I kept wondering what was the point of the book. After a while, I didn't even want to know.

    Great read and it's free!!

    This was a great read and it's free, great for hard core sci-fi fans and fantasy fans, Mr. Clarke has found a way to blend both elements while exposing the reader to a new world and the possibilities yet to be realized in our own. This story provided a new look on how society can be, one that I personally have never seen approached the way that this author has chosen which is refreshing as any sci-fi/fantasy reader can tell you the genre can be repetitive in the plots and story lines but I can garauntee that you haven't read a story like this and did I mention it's free what do you have to lose. My only compliant right now is I don't know when book 3 in the series is coming out. Yeah I read book 2 (hunters in the sky)in the series and it is hard to say this because book 1 (people of the tiger) was really good if not a great book but i have to say book 2 was just as good if not better than book 1, hey Wayne when is book 3 coming out huh

    Open your mind!

    I enjoyed this book, even though I was not completely comfortable with all the ideas. It was futuristic but not unrealistic to the point of not being able to believe it possible. I like the structure in which children and adults know what stage of life they were in and what their resposibilities were in that stage and the next one. The different ways of life are there- doesn't mean the reader has to like them all. The inventions/ideas were amazing. Yes there were many editing errors but nothing too distracting. I would love to see a movie but our society would only accept it if the children/adolescents were about 5 years older. Already bought the next in the series........Maggie

    Great story

    I too found this to be a great read! The storyline and imaginations of the relatively near future were great. The sex scene with the kids was a little hard to stomach, and there were some major editing errors (using the wrong name, ie writing Tira when you were talking about Tika, and a weird year jump in the middle), but other than that awesome! I loved the attention to detail! I have already purchased the second book in the series!
