    Because this book is about a heroic kid who successfully faces adversity and a hostile home life, I give this book to middle school kids in foster homes.Tom Glas

    L. Neil Smith is unique, far as I’ve discovered, in believing that almost any living creature in the universe can be, or modified to be, a sentient, sapient being. This makes all of his stories exceptionally interesting, almost always hilarious, and occasionally philosophically very challenging. In a universe like that – with an infinity of alternate universes – finding something to eat might become very difficult unless one eats rocks or plasma from the sun. The carrots and peas might just begin arguing semantics or pull a gun…But, as Neil says so often, I digress.Brightsuit MacBear is a story of a young man, from a less than helpful family situation, who nonetheless has the integrity and intelligence to “smell a rat” and decide to do whatever it takes to make things right, even though he is singularly unprepared physically to actually carry that out.

    Like many other libertarians, I used to be a fan of L. Neil Smith because I thought he was a libertarian. But he voted for Trump. If you're a Trump fan, go ahead a buy this book - you are exactly the kind of reader L. Neil Smith deserves.

    This book starts off a subseries; juvenile adventures in the universe of The Probability Broach. This is the first; Taflak Lysandra is the second, and the third is yet to be written as of October 2013. The protagonist is an orphan who lives with an 'uncle', a crusty old hermit with strange religious convictions - on a spaceship larger than most current cities. This book explores his surprising heritage and uncovers a dire threat to the entire universe.

    A young boy raised by an overbearing uncle, under a cloud because of his parent's death years ago, lives in a libertarian paradise where people can live on spaceships cruising among the stars.But these people have their problems too; it seems some people are always going to want power over others, and there's always need for someone willing to stand up for their rights.This is an adventure story, an exploration of growing up, a wish-fulfillment fantasy of playing with the most advanced tech seen yet, and a (sometimes heavy-handed) explication of the Libertarian point of view with horrible examples of what goes wrong when people seek power over others.

    Reads as if written for the young science fiction fan. This story is shot through with excitement, swashbuckling derring-do and many tense moments. Villains can be easily related to those in our world today, and Smith's ability to create a world is matched by few.

    Excellent book, wish he was still writing for this universe. On to Taflak Lysandra!

    Fifteen year old Berdan Geanar was not a very happy boy. He didn't know what he wanted to do with his life, he wasn't allowed to carry a gun and his grandfather seemed to hate him. Now his grandfather had jumped ship, taking all the money and a experimental smartsuit with him. One that didn't belong to him.Berdan decided to stop his grandfather, but doing so meant leaving the Tom Edison Maru and landing on a planet covered, from pole to pole, with jungle, dangerous animals and exotic cultures.Set after the events in Tom Paine Maru ( which is set in the Confederacy universe) the novel is fast, fun and, like many of the author's books, about people who belive in being themselves - about TRUE freedom. The book could be red as a stand alone novel or as one part of the series.
