Moon writes like a combination of the Grand Vision of writers like Arthur C Clarke and Issac Asimov, but without the nerdishness that made their characters seem wooden and one dimensional. Moon has a real understanding of not just people as individuals, but as groups, families, societies and nations. This is absolutely some of the best large vision fiction I have ever read, right up there with my favourites of the new wave like Robert Reed, Paul McAuley etc.
You should probably read this book.
