I think that's amazing.
And Cat isn't the only one. All of the characters feel real. Even the bad guys get to be human beings with feelings and wants. No one is cackling in the dark, happy about all of the bad things they're about to do. That's makes them even more terrifying.
Now, part of that is because Vinge is incredibly good at exploiting the character gimmick. Cat is a telepath, so we occasionally get to into the minds of those around him. It's easy to see the humanity in someone when know what they're thinking and why.
I love the plot. This is where I would maybe try to explain it, but you can go click on that link and read the description yourself. Besides, I'm not sure I could really do it. It's... man, it's big and vast and has some really cool stuff. The good parts are also the bad, though. It's so big that I sometimes wonder if I really know what's going on. But then I think maybe it doesn't matter. I like the way I've interpreted things and I love the conversations it's started with other people that read it.
The book is long. Depending on how you feel about that, this is good or bad. I don't tend to want to get into really long things, especially these days, but I liked everything so much that I didn't care.
And, something I didn't realize until after reading it, it is actually the second in a series. However, I never once felt lost. I've given it to other people and they've also said that it stands on its own just fine. But, if you like it, I definitely do recommend getting Psion (the first one) and Dreamfall (the third).
