A very uneven collection
An odd mix - some lighthearted stories, some more philosophical.
While he is following a formula, he's following it really well.
A remarkable achievement, and well-deserving its status as a classic.
While this was a book with a lot of opportunity, almost all of it is wasted.
A fun project for the author, but dull for the rest of us.
Trying and dull.
The stories could have used a stronger sense of direction, or a firmer editorial hand.
A tolerable but not very interesting adventure story.
A haphazard and uninteresting sequel.
The resolution mostly left me happy the book was over.
Feels like an early draft that still needs considerable polish.
