5 stars. Quite simply, this is one of the best sci-fi books I've ever read. And that's saying something, from someone who owns nearly 2,000 books, most of them sci-fi.
4 stars for this interesting nature book that reveals much about nature and our fellow man. Philosophy, humor (and lots of it), wilderness... it's all here.
4 stars for this Aztec murder mystery. Take great action, throw in some suspense and a fascinating historical setting, and you have a recipe for one of the most unique books I've read in years.
