The Well of Stars by Robert Reed
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
In one way, this is a pretty fascinating set piece of espionage on a grand scale between an amorphous intelligence the size of a nebula and the wandering Great Ship, itself an enormous spaceship carrying many, many now-immortal species between galaxies, the long route.
While I appreciate the idea, I found myself wandering and wishing we had more of the internal intrigues of the Great Ship and less of the almost aimless machinations outside of it.
I feel like it could have been a lot better, sharper, in short format. It could also be that I wasn't all that invested in these particular characters.
Anyway, I'm not unhappy to have read it. The ideas and worldbuilding, if not the execution of it, were pretty great.
