The sad but epic conclusion to the Rama series did not disappoint.

This book is yet another category of sci-fi from the previous two. It is an epic that follows the development of the human colony on Rama. it is masterful development of many different characters that still orchestrate the background transformation of a synthetic city.

I am impressed that the world still is believable and vivid despite the many changes...

The book is a different category of sci-fi from its first in this series. Here the authors are interested in the characters and their schemes, the pressure from the press, religion, military etc..

in a sense thjs is less original narrative, but in many others a new kind of sci-fi takes hold that is well suited for filming.

We are left at the end with many questions left unanswered, but also some amazing insights. The long beginning which is all background for the characters could be condensed but is useful reference for the politics of what emerges later.

I enjoy seeing how two authors collaborate on a novel like this, and it is fresh to actually be able to recognise their voices so clearly.

The final book in the series alternates between fascinating new insights into other alien civilisation and less interesting himan intrigue. The book is a blend on style between book 2 amd 3.

It is still a worthwhile read but careful analisys reveals many plot inconsistencies, the book is much closer to fantasy than hard sci-fi.
