Worst Book In Series
I liked the end the best. This was a very disappointing ending to an otherwise excellent saga.
I would definitely try another Pohl book as I enjoyed most of the Gateway/Heechee books very much.
Oliver Wyman did an excellent job of making lightweight material entertaining.
I think it needs a story.
If you have been following this saga then you will need to get this book just to find out what becomes of the characters. However, it is without doubt the weakest link in the Gateway/Hechee chain.
