  • Upgrade on Oct. 05, 2011

    The first thing that struck me about Upgrade was that it was very well written. Then I was hooked by the science which was both intriguing and credible. The fact that I read the whole book in one sitting speaks for itself - I really, really wanted to know what happened in the end, and I wasn't disappointed...well perhaps a little which is why I nearly only gave four stars instead of five. You see, speaking as a wife, I'd have used scissors!

    Twin-Bred by Karen A. Wyle. Escaping from an over-crowded Earth, humans search for somewhere to live; somewhere clean and fresh – a good place to put down roots and raise children. They settle on Tofarn, which seems to fit all of their requirements – even the indigenous aliens appear happy to accept them. Trouble inevitably flares between the native Tofa and the human newcomers, mostly because of mutual ignorance. What is needed is a means of bringing the two communities closer, the forging of some permanent bond, which in itself will draw everyone together and make for a peaceful and mutually tolerant society. What follows is the story of a scientific attempt to produce that perfect solution; the setbacks and the successes, the joys and the unforeseen disasters. A happy ending? A hopeful one, definitely! I would love a sequel to this beautifully written, captivating novel. More please!
