"Science fiction is at its best in the short form. And it is here that Sean Williams excels." (Jack McDevitt)
Annoyed with Audible because they wouldn't print my review about Ken Follett's "Fall of Giants"
Not a self-contained book. While not bad in terms of some of the ideas (very "talky"), its confusing without having read the prior book
This book is not only completely dependent on the others in the series, it tends to ramble. It is told in first person perspective of an antagonistic new character (Jacob) unrelated to Imre Bergamasc or his crew. Almost like a long footnote to books 1 and 2.
I spent the first half of the book waiting for it to get started. Eventually, you more or less spend the entire novel sitting on Jacob's shoulder listening to him think and strategize about his dealings with Imre.
This one is not essential to the story.
While not a stand alone book I would regard this as an essential part of the Astropolis world - well written and a good narrative break from the rest. Well worth $7.
