I quite enjoyed this book. I was recommended to me by amazon after rating a bunch of Iain M. Banks and Peter F. Hamilton books positively, and one tweet supported this, albeit in a qualified fashion.

On reflection, i pretty much concur: the science isn't hard like Egan - it's more of a general background hum behind the space opera. I enjoyed the universe, but it's no Culture. I would compare it broadly to Peter F. Hamilton, although its a lot shorter and felt a little harder to get into, although that could easily reflect my greater familiarity with Hamilton.

It'll be interesting to see how i feel if/when i get around to reading The Skinner which was recommended by a friend as a followup. At the moment, i somewhat prone to give it a go, but have a few books ahead of it in the queue.
