Format: Paperback
GoGai is the story of refugee Doug Dhar, fleeing a crumbling dystopic earth future, only to find himself in a new planetary system heading towards a similar end. In this first book of the Last Earthman trilogy Hurtt sets up his world and sets up his protagonist. Frequent flashbacks give us Doug's backstory. The rest is exploring a completely new world through Doug's eyes. There is a refreshing minimum of "sci-fi" physics. In fact part of the fun is exploring how a human would need to deal with the physical aspects of weightless, long term space travel. What is the most fun is exploring the exo-sociology and exo-biology of Hurtt's world. Common assumptions of science fiction worlds do not hold here. The story is sometimes hard to follow, partly because the protagonist learns and uses the local lizard dialect faster than I can pick it up. This fault is made up for in the original approach to how a first encounter might really go.
