Anvil of Stars by Greg Bear (Three Stars)

Anvil of Stars by Greg Bear

Three out of Five Stars

Slow start. Almost abandoned before 50 pages. By 100 was reasonably confident I wasn’t wasting my time.

Turns out to be a fresh, original science fiction, and once Bear gets going his storytelling is good, the opening nearly put me to sleep.

Good, hard science fiction; good character building; good plot.
