3 and a half stars. imperative to read this series in order. high mark for concept. low mark for actual writing, which veers unpredictably from avant-garde to pure pulp, and i'm not sure how well the false-naive voices of the narrative suit the story anyway. still, an important series, about the collision of a 5-dimensional universe with our own in quantum space.
While not as strong as Radix or Last Legends of Earth, this is still a gorgeous book, filled with indelible imagery, far-out science, and the lush, gorgeous language that makes Attanasio such a pleasure to read. Fans of dry, workmanlike prose need not even pick it up; Attanasio's words are dense and vivid. Every sentence is a loving brush-stroke. Worth seeking out.

I’m particularly intrigued by the creative intelligence that scripts our dreams. And I love carrying this soulful energy outside my mind, into the one form that most precisely defines who we are: story.More about A.A. Attanasio...
