I enjoyed this--a young woman goes off to an orbital college. There are politics at the college, town, and national level. Interesting classes in biology and political history. A lot of inclusion, including socioeconomic levels and gender issues. The reactionary religious people are annoying but an interesting metaphor.

I haven't read Door into Ocean yet, I wonder how much she has changed over the years.

Well I have mixed feelings about The Highest Frontier.

The political satire part didn't work so well for me as I am not American, it also led to certain decisions about US superiority which I also felt uneasy about.

Generally it was ambitious enough but I enjoyed The Door Into Ocean more.
