''Both halves of the book are permeated with the ingenuity that has been the driving energy of Niven's stories since his earliest work.'' --The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Inside Flap
Phssthpok the Pak had been traveling for most of his thirty-two thousand years. His mission: save, develop, and protect the group of Pak breeders sent out into space some two and a half million years before...
Brennan was a Belter, the product of a fiercely independent, somewhat anarchic society living in, on, and around an outer asteroid belt. The Belters were rebels, one and all, and Brennan was a smuggler. The Belt worlds had been tracking the Pak ship for days -- Brennan figured to meet that ship first...
He was never seen again -- at least not by those alive at the time.

Huge fantastic leaps in logic, the third half of the book was hard to put down. Good book for a short span, would make a somewhat good movie. He attaches reality to the fiction all the way down to a biblical example. Very accurate science (for what was known when it was written)
descriptively, kinda dry. The first half of the book kinda dragged on, but is necessary for the good half. Not a book to keep you occupied for a long time. most of the characters are either ugly or nondescript. you only see 2 characters develop. (of course, for a good part of the book, there really are only 2)
