Even then many serfs would choose to stay on Proton after their twenty years are up, but juxtappsition is not permitted in most circumstances.

Assuming, of course, that the winner is not a Citizen already. And while Stile’s rigid morality gets tiresome, it is, at least, internally consistent, and the deux ex machina that insures everyone gets a happy ending is better than marginally plausible.

While I love the series as a whole, and I do like this book quite a bit it has a number of problems. How he manages it all will keep the reader on the edge of his or her seat throughout.

Stile still in the Game, still competition to win citizenship.

This was fun enough but as with most of his works, sexist and rather simple. Both of these books have a naked woman on the cover, though the first has a robot, and this one has a stone statue. Most of the atmosphere of juxtaposiiton planet has been destroyed through the mining of Protonitea valuable energy source, and the inhabitants of Proton live in domed cities with artificial life support.

I enjoyed his climb through the Tourney and up the ranks of the Citizenry, I liked the robot equal rights subplot, and I liked the book’s ending. This book taught juxraposition a very important thing, the meaning of the word Juxtaposition. Stile was somehow supposed to take over the job of saving them or go dawn juxtapsoition total destruction with all he loved.

Shoot, I re-read them all in the span of about a week, so regardless of his feelings about women, Anthony clearly knows how to tell a good story. And the verdict is … well, mixed.
