A shame

Some great concepts, but ultimately pretty dull and anticlimactic


This story and it's 5 sequels was a real journey for me. The first is more descriptive and creates the world that is Rama but gives no answers. All the books that follow penned by gentry lee see many lives unfold and surprises delivered right to the beautiful conclusion. Meaning of life stuff! A big investment to read the lot but when you turn the last page you may collapse on the bed like I did!


I have read the series 4 times over the last 15 years and can't recommend it enough. Easily the best book I have ever read. Full of mystery and awe. And the characters have great depth. Download, read and enjoy!
