Again Meany excels in creating new worlds with amazing and perplexing technology and the culture that results. Technically challenging to read, he creates a unique science which is a central theme in this series. In Paradox, the main character is a young man who's incredible life takes him from the lowest class strata to the highest and back. Meany highlights the class divisions and the impacts that the highly stratified world has on individuals and relationships.

My only complaint is that Meany seems to ignore race except for mentioning Asian characters. No other characters have any descriptors of race. It's slightly weird. His other book, To hold Infinity, does a much better job in not just assuming that all the characters are white unless he explains otherwise.

Alan Maybe the author doesn't specify race because it allows the reader to make up the race in there own minds. Just a thought
