Children of the Comet by Donald Moffitt

This book has a very interesting premise.  Time dilation leads to a curiously inverted exploration program with an anthropological twist.  There is also an exploration of political unrest in a closed population with generational aspects.

There were more things I liked about this book than I disliked.   There were times where it dragged but overall the plot moved along.  The characterizations were good but a touch of pontification slowed the movement.   I found the fact that women were still fighting for equal rights hundreds of thousands of years later some what dismaying.  However with an obvious misogynist running for President, I guess it isn't surprising.

I recommend the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
