    "Spectacular Events, Unexpected Turns" L.D. Smith has taken two of the most common types of science fiction and shuffled them together to create an unforgetable story. L.D.'s relyence on his past work experience and education make The Children of Tau Ceti not only an egrossing story, but also allows the reader to learn something new. The mix of fiction and fact is amazing. L.D. also has an unpresedented talent for using extreme analogies which could make anyone understand the importance of a statement. I recommend this book for anyone, including those who are not particularly into science fiction (such as myself). As a slow reader I don't read often, but this book kept me tired for a week (I didn't want to put it down). Thank you, L.D. for the wonderful experience. James Humig Website:

    "AWESOME BOOK!" When I decided to write a review for this book the first thing I thought to say was that its hard not to like The Children of Tau Ceti. The book definitely kept my interest. The prospect of humans venturing into another solar system to colonize a planet has always fascinated me. This book just added to that fascination. It's a great book and I would recommend it to anyone. As a matter of fact, I know people who have read it, enjoyed it as much as I did, but are not normally science fiction fans.

    "The Children of Tau Ceti" I found the descriptions of life in outer space intriguing. The story got me really involved, and the mystery kept me going. I hope there is a sequel.
