some interesting concepts, some badly executed, I hate the word "e-butler" it's the worst name... it's like everyone in the story saying things like: "call me on my cellular phone" nobody says that, the would say "call me on my cell". so similarly even if there was a thing called e-Butler that's such a terrible name it would get nicknamed to something else. Not in Peter f Hamilton world though, instead you have people seeing a train and going into an elaborate speil about that particular model of train. Do you care about fictional train makes/ models? I sure don't. then when somebody does something interesting like go through a wormhole you don't get the same level of detail about that as you do about sci fi trains... this book is boring, has goofy plot elements. did not finish.

narration is decent, but the narrator STARTS OFF Loud and then trails off to almost inaudible near the end of every paragraph. I found it annoying.

Mary Sue main character who can do anything. bad start trek references, hackneyed jokes. do yourself a favor and move on.
