Mr. Reynolds creates a fascinating world, with interesting characters and ideas. Unfortunately he left me disappointed in his story telling ability. As with the book before it, I'm left feeling like he got bored writing the book and in the end just looked for the quickest way to wrap things up. Major parts of the final story line are summarized instead of lived, leaving me abruptly set adrift, and disconnected from characters he spent so much time building up.
If you enjoy Sci-Fi entertain yourself with the incredible world which Alastair Reynold creates, just don't prepare yourself for the abbreviated ending.
