Praise For The Mote in God's Eye…
Possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read.
San Francisco Chronicle
As science fiction, one of the most important novels ever published.
A superlatively fine novel...no writer has ever come up with a more appealing, intriguing, and workable concept of aliens.
A spellbinder, a swashbuckler...And, best of all, it has a brilliant new approach to that fascinating problem -- first contact with aliens.
One of the most engrossing tales I've read in years...fascinating.
Intriguing and suspenseful...the scenes in which the humans and aliens examine one another are unforgettable.
