I loved Priest's "Inverted World," and hoped for another great ride. But this book just failed, from page one. The plot consists of recurring characters popping up on various islands that make up a world. They don't do much that is interesting, really. This seems more an exercise in postmodern non-linear something or other than a good old fashioned story, which is what I want out of my sci-fi escapes. Meanwhile, I've read away the last day of my vacation. Ah well.
