Part duex

Humans, by Robert J. Sawyer, and
Hybrids, by Robert J. Sawyer. These kind of remind me of the original Star Wars trio; they take a while to get through, they're pretty long, but when you get to the end, you go, that's it? The plot could be condensed into a much shorter space and be less boring. That's not to say that it isn't interesting; there's alot of brain-boxy type stuff-- physics and whatnot-- but the story doesn't exactly race along.
One thing that bothered me is that it's a male author writing for a female main character. He may have done research and gotten in touch with his feminine side, but he didn't quite get it right. Good job for trying, but stick to your own gender.
