HE'S A QUAKE MAN
There were several things I enjoyed about this book. I always like wild biology books. One of the main characters is a strong woman and by strong I mean physically as well as mentally. There are some cool inventions such as transparent metal and a gun I like to call the windows 8 gun (very touchy). What I didn't like were the huge amount of politics and the PSI stuff. PSI was the explanation for most things happening and that just seems like a cheap way out to me. At the time this was written, PSI and telepathy were big in a lot of books, so Harry is just writing what was being written at the time. I also felt that Harry held back on some of the science to make this more pulp.
I like some of the books Harry wrote later, but audible does not carry these books. His Eden series was excellent and I would love to have that in audible. He also wrote a book called Captive Universe which was pretty cool. If you like the biology gone wild stuff, Audible does carry Neal Asher's books. I have only read one so far, but hope to read more.
I used to have a problem with Jim Roberts. I mostly connected him to cheaply done stuff, but I have grown used to him for these older books and he has grown on me.

Great sci-fi novel and very good reading. Can't wait for Deathworld 2 to come out.
