A Classic Read

EarthEarth by David Brin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read Earth in 1991 and Brin’s vision of the near future was so dead accurate it still impresses me to this day. I love any story with solid scientific exploration or experimentation as a plot device, but because science changes by the second, it’s particularly hard to write a near future fiction that isn’t immediately passe. Brin has managed to predict the future beautifully, or like Heinlein’s waterbed, he threw the ideas out there and society followed his lead.
