And that's coming from a Caucasian. Kudos, Mr. For anybody looking at the kindle edition, I read that edition, and as I recall, it had none of the industry-wide issues with editing, formatting, etc. The kindle version was as well-produced as any hardcover would be.

Shelves: brain-candy , scifi. I've gone through this book like a hot knife through butter. It's an excellent, fast read with well drawn characters. I'm really enjoying it! The fact that the author is an African American scifi writer is also a plus--there are very few of them. This is one of the best and most entertaining books I have read in a very long time.

One criticism of Jean M. This novel is of average length and is very well plotted. Feb 03, BetCbee rated it really liked it. Great read rich with detail and an interesting story with characters you will love. Jan 06, Pilouetta rated it really liked it Recommended to Pilouetta by: elisa. Jul 22, Erin M. This I found very entertaining. I chewed through this book over two days, and just couldn't put it down! The author had an excellent understanding of his setting and characters, and must have done an admirable amount of research to create a story this convincing.
I particularly enjoyed his portrayal of the spiritual aspects of the people and the meanderings of their daily lives. Completely believable and written in a crisp, immediate style that places the reader in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro and the footsteps of all our ancestors, I cannot recommend this highly enough. Simply terrific.
