Read from January 14 to 29, 2012

At times the authors delve a little too deeply into politics that slow the story down, but otherwise a worthy conclusion to the trilogy, if still a bit too optimistic about humankind's ability to endure despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

In the end, it seems all stories (especially by these authors) that try to address the far future of the universe end in overwhelming cold, darkness, and loneliness. That, I find extremely depressing.
