The sci-fi portion of this book is very good and makes for an interesting read.

The love story I found got more ridiculous as the pages went on. The need to express their love for one another every couple of pages does not add to the book. This was just so repetitive it became very annoying. It gets worse the further into the novel you get. I found myself just flipping the pages to find a way back to the storyline.

The ending was a major disappointment. I found the ending rushed, inconclusive and half-baked. Hard to believe after 800+ pages.

This story was incredible! Well-written, the world(s) very fleshed out and wonderful, characters that were easy to relate to and care about, all the humans & aliens were described very well - all in all, a fantastic, solidly written story. I especially loved the sci-fi opera style of narration. That made it very easy to follow the setting changes and keep track of who was where.
BUT...
There were A LOT of commas. Seriously. That many commas are simply not necessary. Some of the dialog between characters was stilted and really hard to believe. No one, and I mean no one, says their 'sweetie's' name (or calls them sweetie, honey, baby, whatever) that many times! I was about sick to death of David & Tulip's love story by 3/4 of the way through the story. I really wanted them to just shut up already. These two things are what kept this from being my new favorite book. I just couldn't get past all those commas.
The story was absolutely fabulous though; that made this book well worth the money.

What a wonderful first contact book, and one that departs from the usual ideas. The political chaos that develops after knowledge of Anu-bis's arrival was all to real. The description of the advanced technologies were nicely balanced by the story line and left me wanting more detailed technical information. The idea of "back-up" copies and personal protection against attack, both from within and without, were thought provoking. My only regret is that there is no second book to read, and I am left wanting more of the ANU-BIS and Isisian adventures story.

Anu-Bis is a Sci-Fi story with something for everyone. From the space faring, high technology, action, intrigue and even includes mention of "The Greys" and the genres infatuation with anal probing, through to a touch of romance and a whole host of lovable characters that you cannot help becoming attached to. This book took me on an emotional roller-coaster with many laughs, a few tears.

The author has built a wonderful culture and lore with the Isisian people and their wonderful Oarcana and Vortakai. There is enough technology and science to make all fans of the genre happy. Whilst not so much that the story is lost to just long descriptions of technology.

I hope we get to meet with the Isisians again soon, as there is great potential for more tales from this world.

I would have to put this book up there with other Sci-Fi books the likes of Clarke's Rama series, Bear's Thistledown, Scott Cards Ender Saga and for the culture and character development, alongside Feist's Midkemia books.

Personally that is all I ask of a good fiction book, that it be interesting and entertaining. Anu-bis fits this bill. It held my interest and kept me looking forward to reading more. If there is a follow up I'll definitely be interested in reading it. Very good job.

This is how first contact should be. This author did a great job telling his story. I found it interesting and did feel like I was overwhelmed by the author trying to explain things so much that I wished it would end.

First I'll begin with the use of the word "sweetie" to the point of ad nauseum. I never realized I could learn to hate a word so much until I read this book. It got to the point where my wife called me sweetie at one point as she walked by and it made me cringe. Completely overdone. The love store between main characters was annoying beyond belief and lacked depth.

I have read books where a lot of bad things happen to the main characters and the bad guy gets away with bad things. These stories always made me angry and wish that someone would write a story where everything went right for the good guys and nothing bad ever happened to them. After reading this book I realize now I was so wrong. NOTHING bad ever really happens to the main characters. At least nothing lasting. There really arent any bad guys in this book. The visitors are invincible and religious and millions of year more advanced than Earth.

Here's where I kinda contradict myself. I really enjoyed reading this book and would like for there to be a part 2. However, I really really really recommend cutting the use of the word "sweetie" to maybe 20% of the time instead of 90%. Or dont use it at all. Second, get some bad guys in there that challenge the visitors and maybe have some characters die and stay dead.

I wont recommend this book only because you have to make the decision for yourself. These are my opinions. Make up your own mind.

Found my self lost in a world of first Contact with a race so
full of fun and with a sense of humor that is second to none in this or
any other universe, The story was well written and the charters really come to life,
when your not Reading about them, you will find your self wondering what thy are doing now,

this is a exultant book and I am proud to have it in my SUFI collection
I look forward to meeting the ASIANS on many more of there adventures in our sol
as they are a wonderful race and should nor be forgotten after after just one novel

I can not think of a book that has captured my attention more in resent years then Abu Bis simply a must red
