    Without a doubt this is my favourite SF novel. It is a worthy successor to the fabulous novel by H.G.Wells and is one of those rare SF books that bears multiple re-readings. It's difficult to find SF with great hard SF ideas that don't also make you cringe at the quality of the writing (think Arthur C Clarke!). There's relatively little that's cringeworthy in this book.
