This is a classic, must-read sci-fi novel. First contact does not get any better than this, and i have been reading science fiction for 40 years! the moties and the people who encounter them are interesting, the pace of the writing is excellent, and keeps you interested all the way til the end. Set in the somewhat distant future the story is plausible, to me at least. I first read it when it was new, and re-read it recently, and still does not disappoint.

Riveting, a little scary to think how easily things could go this way.
