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.

This is how you write a science fiction novel based on theoretical physics and advanced math without straining the science to provide yet another inner/under/hyperspace faster-than-light merry-go-round.

I am always a sucker for fantasy mixed with absurd science. Occasionally beautiful writing. Great ideas about consciousness. Fun read.

I’m a novelist and student of the imagination living in Honolulu. Fantasies, visions, hallucinations or whatever we call those irrational powers that illuminate our inner life fascinate me. 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.
