4.0 out of 5 stars Good Sci-fi examining law, society and morality June 8 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've been searching for another copy of this book for quite some time. My original copy was loaned out so many times, it apparently decided make a go of it on its own. An excellent read. The main character is a piece of human filth at the beginning of the story, and is landed on a prison planet in a shipload of similar creatures. Being thrown together in adversity makes a group of these lowlifes, and they find themselves fighting back-to-back against a whole planet of people like themselves, bloodthirsty, implacable and despairing. With no laws to break, and no society to offend, they find they have to construct such from scratch or die under the heels of the gangs they face.

5.0 out of 5 stars An old Si-Fi concept presented in a down-to-earth manner! Jan. 24 2002
By "ladyjessy" - Published on Amazon.com
It took me a long time before I got around to reading this book, but once I did, I wondered why I hadn't read it earlier! Dumping prisoners on an empty planet is a fairly old Si-Fi concept and has been used many times, but never with the angle Longyear takes on it. Not only is it facinating as a fiction novel in itself, but is also a psycological book that will open your eyes to the modern day prison system and its flaws. Although I have never been very interested, or had many opinions on 'Justice', this book has helped me form some of my opinions on it. I found the book to be very realistic portrayal of the criminal mind/society and I would recomend this book to EVERYONE!!!!! I have already recomended this book to my history and psycology teachers after hearing concepts in their classes that this book could apply to. Please give the book a try. I garenttee that you will be glad you did! I was! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Justice for All April 27 2005
By Melissa McCauley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In 2115 Bando Nicos is a twenty-seven year-old inmate of "The Crotch", the Union of Terran Republics' prison for incorrigibles in Greenville, Mississippi. Like many other prisons, The Crotch is shut down and the entire population deposited on the planet Tartaros, named for the lowest level of hell, the galaxy's dumping ground for the unwanted. Soon after they are abandoned in the sandy desert of Tartaros, the seventeen thousand-plus population is reduced to three thousand. The remaining "sharks" decide they must band together if they want to survive, and elect a leader who makes Bando the first police officer of the newly-christened Razai gang. With the help of pre-teen killers, homicidal maniacs, and political dissidents, Bando makes up the brutally simple Law of the Razai as they travel in search of a place of refuge. In between trials and fights for survival against the gangs already in residence, Bando and his compatriots must think about the meaning of justice, and Bando examines his own heart to see if he is worthy of the trust placed in him.

This edition contains all three books in the series: INFINITY HOLD, KILL ALL THE LAWYERS, and KEEP THE LAW, and features a lengthy introduction by the author (in which he hints that there may be more Tartaros books in the future).

1.0 out of 5 stars I disliked the edits in this version June 9 2009
By Herb Ollick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
There are substantial edits in this version of Infinity Hold (the first of three stories in the book). In my opinion the edits do nothing to improve the story and in some instances steal the heart from the story to the extent that they make what is one of the greatest SF stories of all time rather poor and unejoyable to read.

I would strongly urge owners of the first edition who love the story never to read the reprint in this book.

As to the second and third stories they are well writen but I feel they lack the soul of the original

4.0 out of 5 stars It sticks in your head for a long while. May 29 2006
By Ar!c - Published on Amazon.com
It's not spectacular literature, but it is well written. In Enemy Mine he took on prejudice and war, in Infinity Hold Longyear takes on Prisons and Justice. Major thematic ideas and they are well executed. Realistic criminals, with a plot reminiscent of transporting criminals to Australia. But the story is more about the creation of Law and justice from nothing, and the redemption of themselves. It's not about how it turns out as much as how it begins.
