  This is one of the best science fiction books I have ever read. The background relies heavily on physics which makes it fascinating. The author does an excellent job of weaving real concepts into his story. If you enjoy physics, this is a must read.

  Please, please, please read at least to the halfway point. Mr. Liu's plot slowly and steadily increases the pace. I loved the entire book. If you find yourself thinking, “What's the big deal” just keep on going. This is a FUN read!


  Note that this is the first of an original trilogy by the author, and I'm hooked.
