Some big ideas in this space opera, but also some truly odd characterization. Would a billions-year old civilization living in gas giants really be living a Gilbert and Sullivan-like existence? A bit more straight up than some of the Culture books I've read without quite so much technobabble.

When you think of 'science fiction', this is the kind of book you should be envisioning. It has lots of 'futuristic' science and technology without bogging you down with technical details. Lots of different aliens, but not so utterly alien that they are implausible. Add in the occasional plot twist and some excellent writing and you have a winner. If you are a Sci-Fi fan, this is a must read.

A little too technical, not enough character to hold my interest. Probably wont finish it.
