I'm finally getting around to reading this book. Man, the first 50 pages or so were really interesting to be reading this year. An amazing amount of "ripped from today's headlines" stuff to have been written that long ago.

I've heard a lot of people didn't like that book that much. I've read it and thought it was pretty good!

Has anyone read any of Stephen Baxter's books? I think he is my new favorite Sci-Fi author. Just enough real-life kind of stuff to keep it from getting too fantasy-ish.

I personally loved the book, long but entertaining throughout. A typically sized
Harry Potter book, so kids today should be able to sit through reading this as well.
Buzz is such a great guy he deserves to be read from cover to cover.

I enjoyed the book as well. Much much better than "The Return."

I never made it through "The Return" it was just a bit slow for me I think. Tiber was a good bus-to-work reading book. I really liked it.
