While not much of a fiction reader, I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait for the next one. To keep me captivated, any fiction has to be engaging and fast paced with a plausible enough story line that I don’t check out due to absurdities. This book has what it takes for me. While the origins and development of the human race in this story challenge my beliefs, this is science fiction. The tale was engaging and well written to keep me reading past that. Mr. Waugh, whom I’ve had the good fortune to meet, coincidentally, on a Holland America cruise (no wonder the reference to the new Princendam in the book!) uses his scientific knowledge in weaving a reasonably plausible and demonstrably creative sci-fi story that I could hardly put down. Bring on NU 2!
