    Starts off a bit... rough, but soon gets into its groove. This is an interesting and insightful examination of empathy, with the added dimension of telepathy. The author uses the old question of "what is out there?" to look at what is in here -- why people behave as they do, how do our cultural and family's expectations shape our lives, and what happens if we buck the system. Clark follows the life of an extra-terrestrial whose people possess advanced telepathy and uses that to explore our terrestrial lives. It's not all existential though, there's a good bit of classic action, adventure and intrigue. An enjoyable and intelligent read that draws themes from classic sci-fi but embroiders them with real personality and realistic responses. Could do with a "less compelling" opening scene (it tries too hard), but the rest is well rounded and definitely worth reading. Four stars.
