Reviews of Gripping Hand, the (1993)
Review by voralfred (2007-03-10)
The follow-up of "The Mote in God's Eye". Not quite as fantastic as the first one, but very enjoyable too (I rated it 8 against 9 for "The Mote.."). Humans go back to the Mote, and interact with the Moties again. The most original ideas had appeared in the first book, but there are still some nice surprises in this one. If you loved "The Mote.." don't miss this one. Don't begin with "The Gripping Hand" though, this series really cannot be read backwards.
