A wonderful story that is part of science fiction and a great way to introduce people to science fiction.
This is not what you would call hard core and has more of a softened feel to it.
It has the plot of Earth dying and saving of the human race by escaping. It is standard plot in a lot of science fiction but this one was dond very well. I really enjoyed reading this even if it was an easy read.
Part of what I like was the characters were developed well and had personalities that you could actually see in real life.
