I haven't read a Mike Resnick book I haven't liked, and I've read a lot of themReviewed in the United States on 5 August 2017
I haven't read a Mike Resnick book I haven't liked, and I've read a lot of them. I just love the way he formatted the story in Ivory, pulling us along between past and future in the way that he did. The characters are memorable, the plot a mystery, and the writing superb.
Ivory again +20 years laterReviewed in the United States on 7 September 2012
I just finished reading Ivory again, having last had the pleasure some +20 years ago. It is a story written in the Resnick style of heroes and villains. A story painted across centuries, and giving both the small and the large important parts of the story. Ivory is in my view one of the best Resnick novels, and the familiarity with the style and scope of his universe makes for a comforting and settled reading experience, leaving one with a feeling of 'I know all this', even though his glorious scope is a modern day fairytale.
Two thumbs up.

The novel covers the 6000-year history of a pair of massive elephant tusks - each over 200 lbs - with a future investigator researching their wild and fascinating history, and the climactic ending required from 6000 years before.
A fantastic sci-fi bookReviewed in the United States on 5 January 2018
A fantastic sci-fi book. The perfect product of a top-tier short story writer stringing along well-shaped narratives with intriguing characters into an artful masterpiece.
Another great storyReviewed in the United States on 3 December 2010
If you liked Birthright: Book of Man, you'll like this book. It's set in the same universe and works in a similar format.
