This was the first book of Orson Scott Card's that I read, many years ago. I looked for more and discovered his voluminous writings - Kathryn H. Kidd didn't write with him anymore (or finish this story) but she is still a reader of his (see his dedications - she's thanked a few times). I loved this story. I don't care that the trilogy wasn't finished, this book is well written, clever, and interesting.

Hmmmm. Orson starts this with what I take to be a concern about the reduced quality that can arise from some collaborations. How appropriate this turns out to be. I've not read any of Kathryn Kidd's work that I can recall but this is definitely well below what I expect of Orson Scott Card on his own. i seriously doubt the subsequent two books in the series will ever be written and I suspect that might well be for the best as it will allow both authors to get on with something worthwhile. I can only hope that this paid some bills. and yet... I think I would read the sequels if they came out. The biggest hurdle with these books is that the main protagonist and narrator is so completely unsympathetic. Critical and hate-filled how could you feel any sympathy?I suspect this was meant to be an introduction to the evils of slavery and the mistreatment of animals as servants of people but ... Lovelock is so scathing even of other animals in his position that it seems the be a perpetuation of the evil.... and perhaps that is meant to be part of the point - but it just doesn't work. and yet I will probably look up other works by Kathryn Kidd and I know I will keep a sympathetic eye out for work by Orson. Perhaps this really is only as variable as many other works by Orson.

Very interesting spin in this book. Worth a read. I hope they finish the series!

An interesting collaboration between two excellent authors, who both bring their expertise to the book. Unfortunately, as with most joint efforts, there are problems with the overall flow of the book. Also, I did not care for the ending, for it seemed to lack any thought put into it. It was enjoying to read, but is the next book ever going to come out?

Poorly formatted story the auther left hanging unfinished. Where are the other two story's. If the story's are not completed, he dosn't think to highly of his readers. The purchase price for this incomplete book should be refunded to all purchasers, with an apology.

I read this book about eight years ago, and loved it. However, I became disappointed when I went to find the next two books in the Trilogy and couldn't find them (or even the titles). Please have Card and Kidd get back together and finish the story.

This has got to be one of my favorite stories ever. After all how many authors write in the point-of-view of extremely smart monkies? ^^;; I luv all of Orson Scott Cards books and this one is probably just as good as the Ender Series and the only reason someone may have trouble reading it is if they're used to reading the point-of-view of human characters and can't step into a whole different species. But Lovelock has got to be one of the coolest monkies in the universe ^^;; (I want one!)

This was a little hard to get into, but once I did, I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for the next 2. Great concepts and characterizations
