Good space opera, exciting and fun, with good ideas.

Somebody wake me from "Newton's Wake. That must be the single most boring novel I've ever read about the interesting concept of a singularity future - one where intelligent machines evolve so quickly that human reality is overturned.

Honestly, I disliked the book. Boring characters, boring situations, boring space drama.

This sci-fi girl says "Skip it." Go read a flawed Peter Hamilton novel instead.

Very enjoyable MacLeod after the Engines of Light trilogy fizzled out in the last book. Fans of Singularity fiction will like this as well as those who like sociological and political SF. What made this book special for me was the snapshot of the arts in the future, something that is often ignored in both written and filmed SF. It's an excellent standalone novel with good action, good ideas and well written.
