It's a good book, but I don't get why P.A. wrote it.
on August 1, 1999
The third in the series after Harvest of Stars and The Stars Are Also Fire, Harvest the Fire is more like a novella in size and seems kinda weird compared to other Anderson works considering there are drawings inside. When I saw those, I thought I had made a mistake and picked up a children's book. When I read it, it was good enough, though. It wasn't as sweeping by far as the previous two novels, but no less entertaining for it. It focuses mainly on the plan for a big antimatter heist, and is really cool just for that aspect. You should give Anderson enough respect to read this before you move on to the fourth in the series: The Fleet of Stars.
