    "This book is really poorly written. I'm a huge sci fi fan and I like any decent sci fi story. This story was contrived and really impossible to get into. Don't buy this. Waste of time reading and waste of money."

    "This is one of the more decent books from the author, but I must say this is not one of his best. Some people play favorites and choose this one, but to me, there are 3 to 5 books that are actually better than this one. I am not taking away anything from this book, but this is also worth reading."

    "My favorite Paul Anderson book is Orion Shall Rise. It's a science fiction book, but it felt relatively realistic. It felt like something that could actually happen in the future. It's a little bit scary thinking about nuclear weapons, but it was a very interesting and thought provoking novel."
