Conhecimento Comum



Loved this book and have bought more in the series to keep up with the characters.

OK episodic stories typical of late '70s SF area. Like soap opera to a degree but very readable.

I'm glad I finally read this, but am disappointed that the quality of the writing fell so below the hype. Still, I found myself caught up with the characters and enjoyed picturing all of the locations.

3rd in the tales of the city series. This one has Michael reunited with a long lost love. Brian andary Ann getting engaged. And the return of Dede Day which is the major point of this novel.
