This is a good book! I didn't realize it was part of a trilogy. I read Worlds, so I knew a bit about the central character. Now I have to read the one I missed.

Haldeman is a good writer. Consistent. And knows how to tell a story. 4/5! ( )
  Scaryguy | Dec 18, 2008 |
While Mr. Haldeman is to be commended for his ambition, he has written himself into a box from which not even the multitalented [main character] can extricate him. Asking the right questions is a sign of wisdom; accepting pat answers is a sign of frustration. Despite its cheerful air of intellectual bravado, "Worlds Enough and Time" turns out to be an exercise in frustration.

By the author of The Forever War: In the decades following the ultimate conflict, the last remnants of humanity face extinction on a doomed voyage to a new home in the stars, in the momentous conclusion to Joe Haldeman's acclaimed Worlds saga The Earth is no more, an uninhabitable shell following the one-day war that obliterated the population. In the decades that followed, the surviving Worlds orbiting the dead planet have become the last refuge of humankind. With the discovery of a possibly habitable planet in a distant star system, ten thousand brave colonists are preparing to depart from New New York aboard the interstellar vessel Newhome. Among them is Marianne O'Hara, who will ultimately control the fate of what remains of the human race. The momentous voyage is plagued from the start by ignorance and sabotage, and by the dark tenets of a nihilistic religion dedicated to ultimate destruction. But despite the many trials and tragedies, the spacefarers-and particularly Marianne and her loved ones-will be forced to endure. There is no turning back once the journey begins . . . for soon there will be nowhere left to return to. With Worlds Enough and Time, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Joe Haldeman completes his magnificent story of humankind's destruction and rebirth, capping off his acclaimed trilogy with a truly transcendent tale of destiny, courage, selflessness, dedication, and the resilience of humankind. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Joe Haldeman including rare images from the author's personal collection.… (more)
