Well; I have now read Poseidon's Wake the last book in Poseidon's Children (although it was initially described on Amazon as a stand-alone novel, which is not true), and I must say that it is the best book that I have read in a long, long time. At times it has a jaw-dropping sense of wonder about it, with many clever twists and "I didn't see that coming" moments, as well as massive ideas... and elephants!! (mainly Tantors and The Risen, who are a kind of post-elephant) and spans a couple of centuries with two main, ultimately intertwining threads, although the revelations encompass billions of years. Well done to Mr Reynolds, and I say to Mr Hamilton... Follow That (pretty please).
Of all the things I value most in life,
I see my memories, and feel their warmth
And know that they are good,
You know that I should!
