The book has a good mystery story along with sci-fi elements which keep you hooked.
The characters are well developed and even interesting, but the plot itself is so lame and the premise behind it is so preachy I found it often annoying.
Polaris is recommended to anyone who enjoys McDevitt's work or just to anyone interested in an easy page-turner.

I love this author and have read a majority of his novels. Anyone reading his stories are likely to find themselves unable to put down the book.Published 7 months ago by Aparicio, JL
It's ultimately an archaeology based mystery but set in a space opera. Well written with a couple of nice twists.Published 7 months ago by Amazon Customer
An enjoyable story but the book was more than half over before I felt truly involved. Not one of the better Alex Benedict storiesPublished 7 months ago by Greg

First off: I actually listened to the audible version, it's less expensive to buy kindle the audio, than just audible. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Hosta Fan
