don't get me wrong. I liked the story, it's just overly complex and seems to have an abundance of dead end story threads. I love this narrator, he's one of the best out there in my opinion.
the Void started out a little disappointing after the Commonwealth series, but this story has become just as addicting. As with the first 3 novels the narrator switches storylines on us in the blink of an eye as they happen within a chapter. He really should have a long pause or something in these situations.
The depictions of varios levels of advanced beings and the nature of reality are mentally stimulating. The parallels with modern politics are too strong to be accidental, though the themes of a few powerful people corrupting society for their personal and families' gains are as ancient as civilization. I like to think of Edyard Obama.
When my younger sister learned to read'd beg me to listen as she brought words on the page to life. That's how I got addicted ....
Boring. Way too many words. Two weak stories woven together. I will not bother with the next book
