Absolution Gap - Alastair Reynolds Redemption Ark - Alastair Reynolds Revelation Space - Alastair Reynolds

Finally finished "Absolution Gap", final of this dystopian space opera. It took me a while to pick up the third as the second was a bit of a disappointment, I was hooked with "Revelation space" in which the potential for an epic story was laid out, disappointed with "Redemption Ark" where more characters that I could handle (or care for) were introduced, so it took me a while to pick up this third volume. For a period I was considering leaving it at that. Yet I found myself going back to my to-read list and ending up reading (mostly negative) reviews for  of "Absolution Gap" so I went for it. 

It wasn't as bad as I was expecting. In fact it wasn't bad at all. The end was disappointing, in fact it may even be infuriating given the length of this saga and the time it took to build this plot. 

But this is still a good book, it was a great ride.
