not only was this another great Company novel, it was also one of the most satisfying science fiction novels i've read in the last couple of years. the characterization was particularly excellent. the book's main character has three personalities in his head, and is also virtually connected to a highly advanced artificial intelligence; each of them has a distinct way of speaking and behaving, and the interactions between the four of them are fantastic, especially when they're having an internal conversation with each other and simultaneously carrying on a conversation in the real world with someone else. this book would not be as enjoyable for someone who hadn't read all of the others in the series, because there's a lot of backstory on alec/edward/nicholas and their AI, captain morgan, and also on the trio's love interest, the immortal cyborg mendoza. this book brings all of their history together at last, and in a big way! now i'm looking forward to the next one. i highly recommend the Company series.

thanks for joining up! :) i found you by idly clicking around among the friends of my friends - i think in this case through eleri, who's also a new-ish LJ friend. i often find nifty people, with similar interests, that way.
