I have all three of the Metatropolis books - and I happened to listen to all three of them in order. There is good and bad about this book - one aspect I liked from the original Metatropolis was the geographic variety - unlike the second book which was located all in one area. Like any anthology read by different people, you'll find that some voices you like and some you don't. This is the case here. The mix of authors is also unique - some from previous Metatropolis books some new. Overall, the book is very good - hence the 4 stars. I do not think it has the appeal of the first book, but it is very well written and very well read. If you have the other two, this is a natural book to buy and it is worth the price. You'll be taken to places you haven't been before in this world, and some that you'll see from a different view. Some characters are old, some are new. Its a good read, but I don't think its as good as the first book.

As a huge fan of the first two METAtropolis books, I expected nothing less from this final installment. After listening to these books in rapid succession, it was nice to get the closure on these overarching characters and plot lines. As an aside: I'm a huge proponent of the basic concept of these books. I think it's very intelligent to set up futurist science fiction in this world as opposed to a completely synthesized one. After all, these 'future cities' will be built upon or just modified versions of today's major metropolitan areas. I guess it gives the stories a strangely authentic flavor.
