This here’s a decent science fiction story. It’s a little slow at times, but it has an engaging setting and a decent plot. I don’t think, however, that a non-sci-fi fan would enjoy. It’s about space-faring humans, way in the future, who stumble across some intriguing remnants of older space-faring civilizations. There follows great adventure and intriguing mystery.
This is the first book I read in a series of novels written by Jack McDevitt. They are not story-dependent upon eachother, but they do involve a lot of the same characters and take place around the same time (24th century). I am enjoying the series, from which I have read two more books since Chindi, and I expect to read more of them in the future.
