Reviews of Earth (1990)
Review by blueworld (2004-03-31)
Out of all the novels I have read by Brin, Earth has the ending I like the best. Now, that may not be saying a lot since I generally think the endings are the weakest part of his stories. The plot involving the black hole isn't that creative, but all the things going on in the background are really intriguing, especially Brin's vision of the future of the internet (note this book was written in 1990, before the www existed). It's a big book, but a worthwhile read.
