One of my favorite books. Gives an altogether awe-inspiring view of what could be, on a Galactic scale of time, distance, and the rise and fall of cultures therein. Also quite personal regarding the primary characters' relationship, which is, for me, always a driver for a good novel. Perhaps demands a second read to really put all the concepts and story line in place.
Along with Iain M. Banks' "Culture" novels, this is a grand and successful effort to bring larger things into a perspective we can wrap our minds around.

Another great Reynolds space opera! A refreshingly new skew on cloning. Well worth the read.

Never have I read four hundred and seventy pages in such a short amount of time. Riveting story and a great tour of Reynolds' imagination.
