After devouring the first book in which Cronin sets up a terrific and action packed scenario, I was disappointed by the second and concluding book. It never captured my imagination as the first one did, and I felt like some of the characters got muddied up as the author tried to tie up loose ends. He left some unfinished story lines, such as why the future citizens were reading the old diaries in the first place. Amy's transformation seemed contrived and forced to me. I can suspend disbelief for science fiction story lines but this time it was hard as some things were just illogical. Maybe the author needs to redeem himself with a third book.
