You DO plan to release an e-book of this wonderful novel by the time the paperback is reissued, RIGHT? It's ridiculous not to do so, especially considering that the 2 sequels are available as ebooks.

Like another reviewer, I read this book years ago and have since sought it across three states' libraries to no avail. The plot is intricate, the characters well crafted, the worldbuilding excellent. The motives and consequences of the characters' actions echo those of our own world's environmental dilemma. This was an excellent read!

I read this book when I was a teenager and frankly came looking for it because I hadn't been able to find a copy anywhere to reread, its been 15 years. A book that can stick with a person that long has some pretty decent impact. I wouldn't give it to a teen to read, but for adults, its some pretty ok leisure reading.

I was going through the Hugo list, and unfortunately this was one of the very few remaining titles I did not read yet. I have no idea how this book won Hugo award, they must've had a shortage on science fiction novels in 1980 or they might have just given it for great efforts in trying to rip-off Herbert's Dune and Ursula's Left Hand of Darkness. Usually, the sci-fi books lack good writing, but they have, especially Hugo award winners, good plot along with decent or better scientific input. This book does not have either. The characters are all one dimensional, and it actually feels like they are all the same person. This is arguably the worst science fiction novel I have read in years ( for certain, the worst Hugo award winning book I've read), and I've read tons of them. I actualy wish I could give it zero stars. If you plan on reading all Hugo winning books, save this one for the last.
