"Yes, it is a long story, but I found it to be interesting and thought provoking all the way through.
I disagree with other reviewers regarding having the Shshi and Human stories separated -- I felt that they both complemented and contrasted each other -- plus, gave a very satisfactory end to the two book series, with little or no loose ends left dangling.
I also liked the way the next series of books were introduced near the end of this story - can't wait to get into those! [The Labors of Ki'shto'ba Huge-Head]" -- Chris Graham
"Though the author modestly characterizes TQ as literary Sci-Fi, the description doesn't begin to capture the full flavor of Taylor's accomplishment. Rather, in TQ V 1 and 2 the author serves up a tome that crosses genres as easily as her intergalactic cast of characters crosses from real time space travel to temporal quantum space travel and back again. In fact, the complete TQ saga is part traditional love story, part epic adventure tale richly seasoned with mythic and religious overtones, as well as copious references to literary classics (each chapter is introduced by a literary epigraph). That said, it is not incidental that Taylor's epic is set in the thirtieth century (2969--2971). Hardcore Sci-fi aficionados will appreciate that Taylor's literary recipe includes science so convincingly researched and/or fabricated as to concoct a perfectly plausible and believable future." -- JackAUrquhart
