There are some interesting ideas and some interesting scenes. In fact certain chapters would probably function better as stand alone short stories, than as part of a larger whole. I still remember his description of one chapter filled with shifting points of view, when the story is told from the perspective of various forest animals that are all killing each other that I found fascinating at the time. But scenes like that don't fit coherently together, they are just a bunch of random images jumbled together. As a novel, it just never comes together.
Daniel comes back as a cyborg - super-power, super-fast, able to see heat and radar and so on.
Besides the details of the future, which seem to be somewhat realistic, well balanced, neither a Paradise nor a Hell, I found Daniel, and the other characters, somewhat childish. In other words, the characters were self-centered, selfish, greedy and therefore very real. Very human.
I also like how the story went slowly from hard sci-fi to soft, fantasy, sci-fi. You have as much trouble believing what is happening almost as much as the main characters. Another sign of a good story - you sometimes find yourself on Daniel's side, feeling he is right to be upset.
As for the ending, yes, it leaves so many questions unanswered, but this is the FIRST of a two book series. The next book, Galaxy's End, continues where this one ends.
Good rainy day book - nothing too complex. Lots of fun ideas.
