Bestselling, award-winning futurist David Brin returns to globe-spanning, high concept SF with Existence.
Gerald Livingston is an orbital garbage collector. For a hundred years, people have been abandoning things in space, and someone has to clean it up. But there's something spinning a little bit higher than he expects, something that isn't on the decades' old orbital maps. An hour after he grabs it and brings it in, rumors fill Earth's infomesh about an "alien artifact."
Thrown into the maelstrom of worldwide shared experience, the Artifact is a game-changer. A message in a bottle; an alien capsule that wants to communicate. The world reacts as humans always do: with fear and hope and selfishness and love and violence. And insatiable curiosity.

A marvelous SF story with more great ideas per page than most books.
Certainly not a page turner, except in parts. This book has way too much thought provoking material from so many angles to allow the reader to blow through pages. For all the nay saying Luddites out there, this is a read that should cause you to question your beliefs. For the rest of us, this book points out lots of directions for us to go.
Could have been a very good story but, it was way too wordy for my tastes.
