Alan Dean Foster: Nor Crystal Tears

Comment on this

An interesting book that isn't really just a quick, fun read, but never quite manages to hit the polished level required to boost it into the upper leagues. The story and characters are compelling and the writing style is wonderfully easy to read. However I felt that it pulled punches a bit and maybe strived too hard for the happy ending. The alien race and society was fairly well developed but frequently stumbled back into humanisms. For all my grumbling I really enjoyed the book and the ideas behind it and would recommend it, but I think I was expecting a bit too much of it.
