I’m really enjoying Redemption Ark, much better that both Revelation Space and Chasm City. Reynolds seems to be maturing as an author; there aren’t as many long winded passages that go nowhere and the percentage of plot driving writing is much higher. I really like the science aspect of a lot of what he writes. His Ph.D in astrophysics or whatever really shows and I enjoy learning about things like stars and vacuum space and tachyons from him. About 400 pages in now and it keeps getting better. Another book that I find I look forward to opportunities to read.
