so very close to this one, but so different. I say the previous reviewer doesn't know what he's talking about. Egan builds innumerable technological and sociological facets of an intricate society, balanced on the edge of collapse, and with each new facet, he just begins to suggest an entirely different paradigm it could create. this is a book not about the end of the world, though it comes terrifyingly close to unravelling into a sollipsist oblivion, it is a book about a world, a fractured and fragmented global culture, where all members struggle for identity, and find it in myriad cults or novel technological expression. this is a book of concepts, many many concepts. some barely suggested, some deeply explored, but cover to cover this book is full of fascinating ideas. five stars. without a doubt.
