Let me preface this by saying that, as a whole, the Probability Trilogy is worth reading. However, I was wholly unimpressed with this - the last installment of the series.
Probability Space seems sloppy and poorly put together compared to the two previous novels. A trend that Nancy Kress started in Probability Sun, regurgitating full text from the previous book as a way to cover the material for readers that have yet to read the previous story, is done her to distracting excess. Also, her attempt to create a completely secular society with little comprehension of human religion becomes annoying with her use of "My God", "Jesus Christ", etc.. as expletives.
Characters are introduced in this story that are made to seem integral to the plot but become nothing more than generic devices to move along a narrative far too quickly. There is a sub-plot involving something like a "rediscovering" of human religion that goes absolutely nowhere.
This story feels rushed and lifeless. I am not disappointed with the series as a whole but am disappointed that its conclusion was so poorly executed and the cliché Deus Ex Machina was so painfully obvious.
