    I confess. My guilty pleasure is good "hard" science fiction and this guy is the best. This book is the last of a series called "The Galactic Center Novels". I got hooked on this genre about 10 years ago and love it for the complete departure from the world as I experience it. The characters are well drawn and the story lines full of amazing events. There is a strong philosophical thread that runs through all of these books that asks many of the same questions any good literature asks. I really love these books. I embrace my nerdy side!

    In this sixth and last of the Galactic Center series, we have a title which I think is my favorite title for any novel I've ever read: "Sailing Bright Eternity" evokes such a beautiful and even transcendent image. Anyway, the entire series was superb for me and Benford is among my favorite hard science fiction authors.

    A satisfying finish to a very solid series. Overall, this is definitely more of an idea-driven plot line than an event-driven one, but it is still good reading. You can definitely see Benford's influence in some newer sci-fi authors, such as Alastair Reynolds.

    Very disappointing. The first three books were good to very good but the last two, and the last particularly, deteriorated into confusion.

    Good ending to the series. A little sad but ok.

    Finally finished the series! The ending was rough and honestly I thought about quitting more than a few times.I promise a more detailed review soon but just know, while there are some awesome parts of the series, I should have spent better time reading a better series.

    Naprawdę dobra rzecz! Doskonale przemyślana, wielowątkowa opowieść o losach ludzkości. Uniwersum niemalże jak z Stargate Universe. Te przeklęte roboty... Widać w niej rękę naukowca, fizyka. Oj naprawdę polecam.

    Very creative future world. REally interesting take on overpopulation and expressed belief that people will not come to terms with with it.

    Brentford clearly has a galaxy of awesome, incredible ideas. Unfortunately, he often struggles to bring them together in a cohesive plot, and this book is no exception. I'm glad I finished the series, but it was definitely a slog at times.

    For a variety of reasons I didn't really enjoy this series. The 3rd through 5th books were my favorites but the overall story just didn't connect with me. Not that the books didn't involve some great ideas with some mind bending concepts but I was having a hard time suspending disbelief and that's something that usually I have a harder time with in fantasy than hard SF.In this book the return of Walmsley had me groaning. The ultimate climax left me annoyed and grumpy that I'd invested so much time into it. I can't say more without spoilers but, for me, it was not a satisfying ending. Except that it was finally over. That was satisfying.

    I only completed this book because I wanted to know how the story ended. The series degenerated and this was the worst one. I would recommend reading Tides of Light as an enjoyable stand alone book and ignore the rest.

    The final book in the Galactic center series. Hard SF.
