Getting Better

The light plot that hampered SUNDIVER, the first in the trilogy is more than made up for here. 250 years later we are in a more sharply defined reality, better writting, complex plot, more defined and refined concepts and a narrator in full stride. Great stuff, looking forward to the next installment

Not good

I listened to the first of this trilogy and was disappointed, but I thought it would be worth it to get to this book because it had won awards. I was disappointed enough with this book that I will not complete the trilogy. The character were poorly developed and I just didn't care about them or the story.
