Overall, it was a good read, if for no other reason that it was different than anything else I've read, but it isn't a book I'll be raving about to my friends.
Getting away from textual issues, the book itself was rather muddled. The story jumped around in time to events that happened earlier, later, and so on. This can be OK, but it was not always handled well. The main part of the book was told as a story, which is a nice device, and possibly can be used to explain away some of the chronological issues. However, the story's narrator had no way of knowing about some of the events he narrated, so his point of view was also mixed up with a more omniscient narrator point of view. Also, it seemed like a lot of story information was repeated: we would receive the information from the point of view of one character, and then switch to another character and receive similar information.
There were some science mistakes, but nothing huge. Most of the book was fantasy, frankly, with devices, events, beings, and circumstances that you just had to suspend your disbelief of and go with.
What I liked about the book was its grand scale: it covered some big time spans, dealt with things like the fate of humanity, and humanity's evolution. It reminded me a bit of Olaf Stapledon's "Last and First Men".Read more ›
There is a serious need for an editor. There are words missing, extra words, missing periods or commas, a severe lack of apostrophes and a few instances of misspellings & misused words.
Don't let that keep you from reading this!!! This story was entirely too good to pass up! I know reading books that aren't well-edited is annoying (I complain about it a lot, too), but I promise you, this one is worth it.
But my main complaint was all the simple typing and spelling and punctuation errors that could have been avoided if the story hd been carefully proofread.
