really liked it
Read from May 10 to 15, 2012

This is the 1st book I read in this series, and you really don't have to read the others to get into this one - which I like. I'm also not a hardcore science fiction reader, so it worked for me that the sci-fi elements in this were more of a backdrop to the story, which is essentially a mystery, and a very intriguing one at that. The setting is a futuristic one, so there is interstellar travel, Artificial Intelligence (and a big theme was whether they are sentient or not) and questions about parallel universes. But the main theme is the search for a scientist that disappeared 41 years prior, and the uncovering of the truth behind his disappearance, the false leads, and the unexpected clues, made this one quite a page turner.
