    " The older you get, the more intriguing this book will become to you--I think. Would you really want to be young again if you had the chance? What if the important people in your life could not join you? You find out how one man answers these questions and learns to live with the marvelous as well as the tragic results. "

    " A human-interest story with a sound and somewhat cynical projection of our near-future reality. Definitely suited for those born in the '60's, I found the book slightly dated just a few years after publication but charming nonetheless. "

    " Although I liked the whole book in general, I was a bit disappointed with Don's choice by the end of the story. He depicts the stereotype of men that can't live alone. It almost seem a weak man, who's life had a meaning because of his strong wife Sarah. But that is just my thought. This was the second book of Sawyer that I read and look forward to read others. "

    " Sawyer is a very thoughtful and thought-provoking writer. His brand of SF, even more so that RC Wilson, forgoes major exciting action sequences in favour of simple, straight-forward storyand character development. His characters are sometimes pretty naive, but nonetheless believable for all that. This book was an interesting look at how alien civilizations could communicate and interact with each other even with the long distances between stars. "
