Definitely space opera, but not particularly remarkable. Similar to Vernor Vinge's post-singularity novels, Newton's Wake relies heavily on the mystery of super-intelligent machines' endeavors and artifacts. Unfortunately, the characters get somewhat left behind and the plot sometimes seems to drag along in the places where it should move fastest.
Overall, a decent weekend sci-fi read, but not a must-have for buffs.
