This definitely falls under the heading of epic novel. The author takes us on an adventure among worlds and people that are all wondrous in their own ways. The depth of this novel is amazing. The different species come to life as the author describes them and the worlds and their people’s sufferings are all readily imaginable.
I love the way this novel spans generations and fills in the story as it goes along. It reminds me of why I love science fiction so much and why it is by far my favorite genre. The author has left nothing out and has brought the readers into his imagination with stunning word pictures of places and peoples.
This is a definite must read. It is science fiction at its finest. Be prepared to enter a whole new world and life and be carried away outside the realm of your own reality. I loved this book and plan to read it again and again.
