This book is incredably uneven. There are some interesting characters, but they are surrounded by many cardboard cutouts given names but little personality - so when they show up again we don't even remember where in the book we saw their names before! Some of the story is compelling and page-turning, while some is boring and skim-read-only. The futuristic technologies and societies are well developed, but then they are also full of nymphomaniacs constantly engaging in pointlessly pornographic sex as if this future was designed to be the wet dream of a nerdy schoolboy. There is epic space opera, but space opera fans may not enjoy the rather disturbing splatterpunk gore and horror.
