★★★★☆ 4 / 5
This is some great sci fi. The good kind; the kind that merely uses science to open up the possibilities for the real subject: the study of the human psyche.
My only real complaint is that the last chapter, Speaker for the Dead, is completely unnecessary and weakens the otherwise poignant ending.
