The first book in the "Twilight Saga" by Stephenie Meyer.
"Omnivore is a thorough and intelligent science fiction story. The parallels between the inhabitants of the planet of Nacre, the three suspects, and humankind in general is extremely intriguing and timeless. The concepts behind the workings of the planet of Nacre itself are very creative and clever. The characters are creatively realistic with a touch of 1960's nostalgic spirit. This unique mixture creates a story that is both entertaining and thought provoking." -Tami Brady
"A brilliant blend of adventure and imaginative scientific extrapolation, Omnivore creates one of science fiction's most remarkable and memorable alien ecologies, in an acclaimed novel that has become a true SF classic." -SF Rediscovery
"The mushroom world of Nacre is original and cleverly constructed, with well-developed systems of botany, biology, and ecology; but the fanciful science backgrounds don't intrude on the plot which is as tightly woven and as suspenseful as that of a detective story. -Publisher's Weekly--This text refers to theKindle Editionedition.
