Publisher's Summary

David Brin, the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of Sundiver, crafts Brightness Reef, a luminous gem of science-fiction literature. Persecuted refugees from six separate alien races have migrated to the idyllic planet Jijo. And despite their incredible diversity, the inhabitants live together in blissful harmony. However, settlement on Jijo is illegal - and it's only a matter of time before the residents of this forbidden paradise are discovered by the galactic powers-that-be.

The narration not the book

I rarely give bad reviews but I have to make an exception. I like Brin as a writer and I listen to a lot of audio books. I can usually get into a book even when the narration is not great. The narration here is impossible to listen to. Wilson has decided to read the alien voices, which make up most of the narration, with deliberately atonal intonation and random vocal emphasis. It may have seemed like a great idea at the time to convey alienness,, but after 20 minutes or so you lose total sense of what he is saying and the will to carry on. Just could not listen to it despite really wanting to hear this book. Shame. You have been warned.
