Took me way too long to finally read this. Don't let the crappy movie keep you from picking this up. Well worth it.

Between this and the movie there's a single good book. Unfortunately, separate, they're a halting story strewn with some interesting ideas. The most compelling part of the book; reinventing civilization through a lie, never blossoms to its potential.

This has to be one of my all-time favourite books. Well-written from many viewpoints (both alien and 'earth origin', incredible depth to the story, tense, at the edge of your seat with action for action junkies (myself included!). I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the previous, Startide Rising, and would recommend it to any readers.

The first two-thirds were really fun and inventive. The writing wasn't strong, but the premise was so interesting and full of promise. But after awhile, Brin got carried away with ridiculous plot devices, page after page of "rapturous" self-indulgent monologue that ruined it. Too bad.
