I loved this book. Adventure/discovery sci fi at its best. Manhattan is 'stolen' and a group of humans tunnel throughout a ginormous alien ship searching for the reason while trying to stop the destruction of earth. A great read and totally worth a credit.

From back of book: When Manhattan--and everyone on it--is kidnapped into space by some unknown alien force, the humans trapped on the island are faced with a baffling (and terrifying) enigma. An artificial dawn reveals that the city, encased in a bubble, rests on a vast plain, surrounded by dozens of other bubbles containing a multitude of alien cultures. Is this some sort of cosmic zoo exhibit or part of a scientific experiement gone horribly awry? Or perhaps fresh groceries?

I was introduced to John Stith about a year ago and am working through everything he's put out asap. Manhattan Transfer continues to be my favorite. It's a science fiction that holds true to the science while still developing characters and an amazing plot line. I wish I could read it again for the first time, the discovery was amazing.
