Mission of Gravity Q5: Any roses or thorns?


What were some of the highlights of this book for you? What parts left you cold? Did you like the light-hearted moments? Did any scene particularly resonate for you?

    There were a few moments when I got a little bored- when there was another landscape problem to be overcome with advice from the humans and ingenuity.

    I liked Barleman when he was talking to other cultures.

    The scenes between Barl and the flyer ambassador were the highlight for me. Also Lackland and his crewmates interacting with Barl. The engineering problems were a bit dullsville, but I liked the social problem solving.

    It felt quite uniform without much in the way of highs and lows, which I guess is entirely appropriate for a book about a very high gravity planet with little by way of surface features!

    I agree with Apocryphal. The scenes with the flyer ambassador were the most interesting.
