Humans think in terms of time as it relates to them, but for other beings, like the Dwellers in the universe, who have a much longer life span, time is not quite the same. And with that long perspective on time, the Dwellers may have more than one secret that would be of use to humans. Geoffrey Amis manages this complex and long book with dexterity. He delivers lengthy and sometimes rambling exposition with a light touch that keeps the strands of the plot moving. His agility with pace also draws out humor, particularly in dialogue with artificial intelligence (computers). His subtle touch with the characters and sense of engagement with the action are infectious. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
