I'm not done yet, but I purchased this book because it kept coming up in lists of recommended sci fi or space opera. So far, it is pretty darn good. It's driven more by intellectual considerations so far and requires some close reading. It's not an action novel you can breeze through - though I don't want to give the wrong impression and suggest that this is great and important literature. What it is, is very, very good science fiction. Certainly, it's better than 90% of the garbage that passes as good writing in any genre these days and will put to rest the lie that there is no well written sci fi.
