This story was one of frustration, annoyance and perseverance. Frustration at the slow story line and excessive characterization. Annoyance at the integration of Peter Pan into the storyline, which got very tedious very quickly. Perseverance, this book took over six months to read, during which I read numerous other books.
Greg Bear fans will enjoy the scale of universe brought to life. However, unlike many of his other books the characterization are excessive.
Was it worth it? Yes, if you have a strong desire to read the conclusion of this story come what may.
