I picked up this book on a whim, based on the strange summary of immortals cast out of their home, and unaware that there were two previous books tied to this story. I would recommend that you pick up 'The Collapsium' and 'The Wellstone' before delving into 'Lost in Transmission', but know that the book stands formidably on its own.

I tend to avoid so-called 'hard scifi' books because I prefer a good story to a clever bit of scientific extrapolation. I find hard scifi books to dwelve too much int
The third book. By know I'm just reading to finish it out. I'm more interested in what is going to happen to the fourth novel that I'm just not as interested in this one. There has been enough foreshadowing that all you know is doom. That being said the characters are getting better, the writing is getting better and it is a pretty interesting ride if you let you self enjoy it.

Interesting concept with immortality, but I remember it feeling like a middle book in a series (which it is) - the reader is really more interested in getting through to the concluding volume than what's going on in the story. As I recall, there were also some good hard sf ideas in there.
Very interesting book. Reminded me of Alistair Reynolds but in a totally different vein. Did not have a satisfactory ending, in my view, but an intriguing read.
An excellent story of humanity in an utterly believable future. Perhaps the best science fiction I've ever read.
