I read this 25-30 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it, like all of Robert Forwards books. Full of science and some great speculation and big imagination.

In a moving story of sacrifice and triumph, human scientists establish a relationship with intelligent lifeforms—the cheela—living on Dragon’s Egg, a neutron star where one Earth hour is equivalent to hundreds of their years. The cheela culturally evolve from savagery to the discovery of science, and for a brief time, men are their diligent teachers.

“In science fiction there is only a handful of books that stretch the mind—and this is one of them.”—Arthur C. Clarke

I'm really hoping this means his other books will appear on kindle, the "Rocheworld" books were even better.

Is a brilliant story and about as hard sf as you can get. Highly recommended!

I am unfamiliar with the term Hard SF, can someone enlighten me?

Read this when I was about 10/11. Good read, starts off a little slow, but the story throws out the tired alien life tropes and goes for something pretty unique. Worth a read.
