Really interesting read.

A bit complex at first but it doesn't take long to get your head around it and engage.

Comley is one of the best characters I have encountered. The author works a bit like a jazz musician when it comes to him - you listen for the notes NOT being played as well. You find yourself wanting to know his secrets.

Highlight - the threads running off the main story. Seemingly minor characters give insights into rich stories. EG (no spoiler) - the story of Evo... WOW. I'd read a novel just about him.

This isn't a perfect book... But it's a damn good book. Somewhat rough at times and maybe could do with a little bit of editing, but if it's a first novel it's a sign of big things to come.

Enjoyed it - it made me think.

Downloaded this yesterday morning and just finished - it ruined my plans for the last 36 hours!

Started a bit slowly but when it got going I couldn't put it down.

Strange story - but excellent. Never read anything like it before.

Very memorable characters. Some of the dialogue was very moving, some of it was very smart - and none of it was ever boring.
