This volume in the series (chronologically the last, at least for now) was somehwat more ideological and less character-driven than previous installments, but the ideas were so well-realized that I didn't mind too much, despite this being my escapist fare du jour. It's fascinating to watch this fantasy/scifi society go through hundreds of years of social and technological development roughly comparable to real history (with, of course, a few important differences), and the religious conflict that drives The Alleluia Files (along with the ruling class's rewrite of teh history readers witnessed in Jovah's Angel) is relevant and smartly understated. And subversive takes on religion (there really is a God...but he's a spaceship programmed by past generations!) is always fun to behold.
