Excellent tome of the series. To be honest, it must be my favourite so far, easy to read. Some of the preceeding tomes were heavy to read from time to time, with everything that happened in many different places, and all the technology and science made it hard to understand the whole story, but this one brings some fresh air into your mind.

Don't get it wrong, the science and technology is part of the story and they are what makes it interesting in good part. This book just brings a change from the heavy science/tech concepts. It may be overflowing by moments. On to read "Fragments" now.

I love the universe, the technology and the overall story has me hooked.
My only problem is the dialogue, as it affects the pacing. There is too much of it for my taste, and he slows the story down for gossip sessions between characters way too much for my taste. Also nobody whispers as much as these people do.
Despite this I've read them all and i'll buy the next, i just wish the author would slim down the dialogue. Its also perfectly acceptable for him to say SIX MONTHS LATER, some time i swear i'm reading in real time.

I am SO hooked on this series. I can't read fast enough! The writing is so rich and I feel like I can visualize everything described and I feel like I am right there. I love this whole series< there's always an unforeseen quirk in every "episode"!

Great series. Wanna-be literary critics might take issue with the editing, but in my opinion the excellent storyline, characterizations and overall pace of the novels trumps all.

I've read the series through twice, and can't wait to read Broadcast 7.

the series would be a "must read" at normal retail prices...at $2.99 it's a steal!

Good continuing story and still good for mindless holiday reading. The continuation of the author to make blatant spelling, grammatical & other errors has unfortunately reached a very irritating level, and it is obvious that no proofing is done.. Considering these are primarily e-books, if something was missed in proofing and updated e-book could be provided.
