Comment: While this is the first book publication for
Dan Simmons and was a critical success, it was printed in a limited
run and is not a common item. I personally found the book to be
interesting, but not something that kept my attention like "Carrion
Comfort" or "Hyperion". Nevertheless, the descriptions
of India are quite chilling.
