The long-awaited new novel by the award-winning, best-selling author of Startide Rising and The Uplift War- an epic novel set 50 years from tomorrow, a carefully-reasoned, scientifically faithful tale of the fate of our world.

"One hell of a novel.... has what sci-fi readers want these days; intelligence, action, and an epic scale".(Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine)
"The prime attraction of Earth is the author's unfailing resourcefulness in extrapolating a post-greenhouse-effect future that is plausible, dismaying, and amazing in equal parts.... Brin's prose ranges from regular to high octant.... His characters have vivid intellectual lives." (Entertainment Weekly)
"Brin has conceived his story on a supremely ambitious scale, and executed it with all the skills at this command." (Chicago Sun-Times)
The narrators are not bad, but I just couldn't get into the story. Stopped listening half way through.
