This is an emotionally difficult book. It challenges the reader in sometimes uncomfortable ways. The world is similarly dense and difficult to penetrate at first. All in all a truly great book, but only if you're really willing to put some work in.

I disliked this book, however after staring Fall of Hyperion this book gave the 2nd so much context it became amazing!
