Mindboggling and awe-inspiring

This book is amazing. I can hardly describe the sheer amazingness of it. In the beginning I was unsure on whether I liked the story, or rather stories, as they seemed utterly unrelated to each other. I was also unsure whether I liked the universe. But all that had vanished by chapter ten, and from there onwards I read this book voraciously, devouring it's contents continuously. It became very hard to put down, and in the past two days I read everything from chapter ten onwards, that's somewhat less then 70% of the book. And this book is an amazing piece of hard science fiction as ever I read one. So incredibly engaging and vivid it boggles my mind. I think I may have a new favorite author now, and I will most definitely be reading his other works.

Well written science fiction. Thoroughly enjoyable read, elaborate world and characters. Interesting themes of relativistic travel, identity and transhumanism. Looking forward to reading other books in the series.

If you're a fan of Space Opera then this is for you. The first book in the Revelation Space series will get you hooked immediately. Three different people in three different situations in three different times come slowly together to create a completed jigsaw. Excellent work and Reynold's at his best.
