This book is reallllllllly long. I think I really would have loved it if it was about half as long.

The point of view of the spiders is kinda lame at times. While the luddite spiders were kind of an interesting dynamic, I didn't really love reading about them quite that much. I also go over the spider babies really quickly. The author does dive a bit into speculative software design of the future, which you might expect from a Computer Science professor. I thought it was pretty cool, thankfully not at all like Stephenson's frequent outbursts, but i expect some people who don't design software for a living might not 'get it' as much.

I probably should have read fire in the deep first, I think thats his first book and people have told me that one is better.
