really liked it
bookshelves: sci-fi
Read from August 23 to 31, 2010

I actually enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. Having read the previous two installments of the series, Relevation Space and Redemption Ark, which I thought were good but not brilliant, I was expecting a bit of a slog with the final book in the series. I was pleasantly surprised to find the book very enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed the way the different timelines in the book meshed together and was gutted when a major character was killed off, (in a very unpleasant manner - even though the scene is never fully described, laving much to your imagination). My only criticism is the wrap-up at the end seemed hurried and the explanation was left to a brief flashback from the far future where the story could have continued.
