THE MOTE IN GOD’S EYE by Jerry Pournelle, Larry Niven

This was soooo SCI-FI like sooo much! I think I listened to 2 hours before I was so lost and so uninterested that I could not go on.

P.S. I am looking for guest raters/SCI-FI lovers. Message me K!!

Comments: This book was also rated one of "the best science fiction novels of all time". What is with that list? I've read SCI-FI and loved it, like SPHERE, and I AM LEDGEND, and SPINDRIFT, and SPLIT INFINITY, THE ENDER SERIES, ETC. Still the two books I picked up from this "list" have totally sucked! I'm doubting my true feelings for SCI-FI now because I was sooo not into this book.

    Agreed on this one. It actually does get pretty good eventually, but you have to slog through a LOT to get there, and I’d say it’s not worth the trip.

    Oh, and speaking of the “best sci-fi novels EVAR” lists, you’ll probably want to avoid “The Forever War.” Utter garbage.
