I could hardly put it down. Being a science-oriented person, I had no problem with all the science. It did not seem dry or boring at all. The speculation as to the nature of intelligent life in a non-Terran ecosystem was fascinating. I highly recommend this book. Another good book by Forward.

As with all of his books, a good read, exact science
based on theory, and a plausible set of aliens.
Uscavel
Good story, more focused on the science/engineering than the human story.

Robert L. Forward's writing had always been mediocre at best. However, most of his books compensate for this by sheer wonder of the described worlds (like the surface of a neutron star in "Dragon Egg").

This book - not so much. The setting is pretty dull compared to his other books and expository dialogs are sometimes downright painful to read.

Others have noted similarities between Forward's writing and that of Hal Clement, and while his visions for alien worlds and lifeforms definitely lives up to that, his characterization of humans falls flat on its face. I love the depictions of the Rukh and their interactions with the human crew; one of my favorite parts of science fiction is world-building and there's plenty of that in the book. But the actions and dialog of the humans seems like a hasty afterthought--their actions were entirely predictable (or tiredly stereotypical) except for two or three cases where they were just flat-out jarringly odd. The bagel I just ate had a more developed personality and more human behavior pattern than his crew. Between the utterly terrible humans and the implausible "meta" substance, I very nearly lost interest in the book, so I'm taking off two stars for that.

Spoilers!!
This is typical Forward: wooden characters whose interactions with each other are totally unbelievable, endless detail of beautiful, real near-future science, silly excuse-for-a-plot, and gorgeous, staggering vistas of real otherworlds and their realistic, amazingly creative inhabitants. The ruus, huge gasbags flying in the atmosphere of Saturn, are far more interesting than the humans who contact them, but Forward always does this. The scenes are giant, brilliantly colored, animated Chesley Bonestell movies: the ruus diving to hunt; the humans "climbing down Saturn's Rings" with the aid of the (real) Hoytether, a kind of super rope which Forward marketed; the funeral of an aged rukh whose flockmates sing as she falls endlessly to the lethal gas layers below; the final battle with an alien monster myth-made-real. If you value character and plot, take your business elswhere. For science and the sheer pleasure of the view, read this!

This is the 2nd book I have read by Robert Forward, the other being Camelot 30k. The premise of Saturn Rukh is simple: find a way to extract the elements of Saturn's atmosphere which allow a specialized space fuel to be made orders of magnitude cheaper.
The explorers include 6 humans. In addition two other characters are explored at least a little
The human characters and their interactions are poor, and leave you caring about none of them much. Even when tragedy happens to some characters, you don't feel much.
The alien flying creatures, Rukhs, are intelligent and have language. They are predators that are organized in packs. Robert Forward does a good job of describing the aliens and spends time behind their eyes, (dialog and thoughts). Some scenes are repeated from the Human and Rukh POV, which really helps. In this aspect he is credible.
The degree of time spent on the science explanations wears the reader down. It is not interesting enough. I found myself anxious to get to the alien interaction scenes.
The editing was poor. Example- The word "load" was used 3 times in one sentence.
Overall it rates 3 stars, much was left unresolved, especially," what benefit would the Rukhs receive as a consequence of a permanent human presence on Saturn". My sense is that this could be a good pilot to explore the evolving relationship between humans and Rukhs over a protracted period of time.

. . .for depth of character development! Like many of Forward's novels, there is a definite weakness in that department. HOWEVER, if you like "hard" science fiction -- sci fi which grasps the best that current scientific understanding has to offer, you will thoroughly enjoy this engaging book.
Forward writes of a mission to Saturn's atmosphere in order to build a fuel factory from the (almost) limitless supply of helium contained there. In the process, the crew discovers life -- life supremely suited to its environment.
4.5 for the science, 3 for the plot, 1.5 for the shallow characters. Overall, a 3 -- and a good read.
Robert Forward is a scientist who writes fiction. He thinks and describes in terms of science problems and then writes a fictional story around it. The story is of the first manned expedition to Saturn. The science behind the mission is well substantiated and interesting, (but most likely only to geeks like myself.) In Forward's world, Saturn is inhabited with creatures that "swim" in it's dense atmosphere. We are introduced to the intelligent, apex predator life forms that have an interesting first contact with the humans. The characters are interesting, but the writing is a little Tom Clancy-ish. Characters have fairly basic personalties and their interactions are a little stale.

The yarn is a good one and the predicament, of possibly being stranded is very interesting.
