Read from October 23 to November 01, 2010 — I own a copy

I had really low expectations of this book to be honest. The opinions of other people that read it were pretty low, the reviews here as well, so I went in a bit afraid of what the much expected Heechee meeting would hold in store for me.

I wasn't really disappointed in the book, but with what my expectations were, that's understandable. Most of the story flowed nicely for me (I really don't mind multiple perspectives in a story) and the Heechee proved to be alien enough to be interesting, and human enough to be understandable in their uniqueness.

Not the crowning moment of this series, but it does little to upset it.

70.0% "It's not the best book of the series, but at least it isn't showing signs of greatly degrading the work. I appreciate the many viewpoints that the story has, and Robin's character is as endearing as ever, especially with Albert in toe. The Heechee are finally close by...can't wait to see the clash of cultures. Hated Wan in 'Beyond the blue horizon', I utterly despise him here."
