Reynolds starts an absolutely brilliant trilogy in fine form with this book. Focussed on a future where humanity has colonised the greater part of our solar system and discovered mysteries which will lead us into deeper space and where evidence of non-human intelligence lies in wait. This book may be read as a stand alone novel for anyone daunted by the trilogy but this story is addictive!

It is no stretch to name this among the greatest works of fiction in the modern era!! Daunting in size but eminently readable. Wallace was a man with a laser focus flensing societal mores & exploring the insanity of daily life.
