4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sci-fi I couldn't put down!, 22 Jan. 2003
Unlike Reynolds first effort, Revelation Space, this grabbed me and held my attention right from the beginning. This is probably due to Reynolds getting down to business a bit quicker this time, the whole book flowing the same way as the last half of Revelation Space did. The main plot-line is a winner, cleverly weaving multiple stories into a tidy conclusion. A minor quibble is the lack of detail and motivation for the female characters, which seems strange when the fairer sex were so much better portrayed in his last book. This is just a niggle though, I judge books by their unputdownability (is that a word?!?!) and this one is definetley unputdownable.
