    1. All four of these are basically the same plot, with similar themes They re engaging, but not awesome, imo Probably best for teen boys Possibly dated by now The first is the grittiest My favorite is Putting Up Roots This is the most cliched All are recommended if you happen to find them at your library or friend s house, none if you have to buy them.They do not need to be read in order The significant characters do not carry over, nor does the plot The world that is being built is developed furth [...]

    2. Good fast read, fairly standard plot Brings in some nano and space themes, simplistic characters and not deep on topics.

    3. I picked this book up a long time ago I have read some of the others in the Jupiter Novels and have read other Charles Sheffield.This overall fell flat We have a rich scion who starts off with his father being dead His mother severely hurt, and he just has to pass some stupid archaic horse jumping test to be sent off to the right branch of the navy And when he fails and is sent off to the wrong branch, he just goes along.He has had years to prepare for this, and does not question his misfortune, [...]

    4. I really enjoyed the author s Heritage Universe series, so I thought I d give this a try Even though this was written in 1998, it reads like a 1950s YA novel Although the scientific details are not outdated, nor are they tremendously exciting either You can tell Charles Sheffield was into astronomy as he spends time on the color of a nebula and that he was a physicist as he explains ideas using graphs.It doesn t liven up the book however, and as the story revolves around the characters they come [...]

    5. Otro YA de Sheffield que brilla por su mediocridad.Aburrido, los personajes son completamente planos y el protagonista todav a m s, y encima un poco tonto A todas las novelas de Sheffield que he le do les pasa lo mismo sus personajes son completamente planos, y las historias bastante previsibles.

    6. Another Sheffieldian adventure This time a young adult novel that doesn t suffer a bit from the structures of that genre, a tale of a fish out of water who through the rigors of asventure discovers a bit about himself Fast placed and inventive.

    7. 4.5 starsGreat book Drags a little in parts, but what book doesn t Had to take off half a star for language and a few glaring typos such as ssfaded For my clean readers Includes language and mild violence

    8. Interesting but short, and it ends too quickly.I really liked the imagery of the Sounders, but I wanted to learn about them.Jeff was emo and not very likeable to me.
