I had different expectations going into the book as some review I read had it listed as hard sci-fi, which as y’all have mentioned it isn’t nor does the author claim it to be.

How do the sequels compare?

Heh. Makes you wonder how well current depictions of future communication networks will age. Big Grin

Re the sequels -

A Deepness in the Sky is actually a prequel and is quite good, although the scope is not as large.

Children of the Sky is a direct sequel and I didn't enjoy it as much as Fire. Mainly because it almost entirely lacks the high tech elements of Fire (one of the primary things I enjoyed) and is very socio-political in nature (which generally doesn't interest me).

I could say more, but don't want to include too many spoilers.

Hope this helps,

Todd
