    fascinating story , highly philosophical but with few scenes lacking originality but that bc I ve set a high standard for his writings A prophet and clearly a master author of SciFi books and star trek movies I cannot praise him and this book enough.

    Good book Some of the later scenes, with the songs from the stars is a bit tedious, but the story as a whole was very enjoyable The world and culture Spinrad crafted was intriguing and charming, if not startlingly original Definitely recommend to any sci fi or Spinrad fans.

    A little heavy on the Karma, but a very good story anyway.

    Es una Utopia Distopia, los personajes son muy bien manejados, aunque en la parte final el brujo se torna acartonado, casi como el cliche de cualquier inquisidor de la edad media.
