When you think of 'science fiction', this is the kind of book you should be envisioning. It has lots of 'futuristic' science and technology without bogging you down with technical details. Lots of different aliens, but not so utterly alien that they are implausible. Add in the occasional plot twist and some excellent writing and you have a winner. If you are a Sci-Fi fan, this is a must read.
