I personally found this perhaps the best SF novel ever written by Simmons. I even find it superior to the Hyperion and Endymion novels. The storytelling is cinematic and breathtaking. The characters are greatly rounded. Adventurous and intense. It sometimes suffers from little academic wanderings but is really a masterpiece. If you read this you should absolutely also read Olympos.
