I have enjoyed and maybe even loved every Sawyer story I've read. This one was no different in that regard, but the book was much different than Sawyer's previous stories.
This story wasn't just science fiction.
As far as the science fiction part went, I had hoped for a bit more science. He had mentioned at Phoenix ComicCon 2011 that this book touched on consciousness and quantum entanglement. So naturally I read up on consciousness and quantum entanglement. That was my fault, I guess. Since he was writing a new style of book, he probably put as much science in there as he could. It was probably worth it, to broaden his audience, if it does.
I first read this in the serialized version that went out in Analog. With the number of characters, that was a difficult task. I read it again in the eBook version and it was easier to keep track of them.
The ending puzzled me a bit and I had to think on it for a while. I still haven't decided if I like the idea or not, but whether or not I liked the idea, it was still a good idea.
I liked the book and I'm giving it a 4, because when I read the serialized version I was angry each time the entry in the magazine was over and I had to wait. It evoked emotion, so it must have been good. ;)
