A decent read. The plot of what amounts to a series of short stories connected by a larger arc isn't terribly gripping, and the final climax is a bit rushed and unsatisfying. What did keep my interest was the characterization of the protagonists, their interrelationships, and how the author seemed to subtly explore the idea of immortality through those relationships.
