This is Cooper's second solo effort, and the sequel to "The Silver Ship and the Sea", with many of the same flaws. But it is also a better book, and bodes well for the next installment of a series about genetically modified humans (and some not modified) on planets far from Earth.
Those flaws, though, make you want to find out what happened more than you want to read every page. Usually, that means some judicious cutting would have helped (it would have) or that it's pretty clear what's going to happen next (it is) or that the characters just aren't that interesting (they are teen-agers, and they aren't).
But I still looked forward to picking up "Reading the Wind" and did want to know how Cooper was going to put the pieces together, even if the shape of the completed puzzle was never much in doubt. So should you go back and read "The Silver Ship and the Sea" (which, by the way, has nothing to do with either) and dive into the series? Maybe. What about if you already read the first one? Then definitely soldier on.
The final judgment won't really come until the series is wrapped up, presumably in the next volume - but, as before, a better title and a cover illustration that had some relation to what actually happens in the book would help in the short run.
I see Cooper has a third book in the series, Wings of Creation , on deck for November 2009 publication. I'll be reading it.
