I've read the whole thing. Yes, this is one of the best science fiction stuff out there. Amazing stuff. Do I have anything more to say? This is the problem, I don't. It's so perfect, that it's quite complete and I have little to add. I liked the first two novels the most, there was some psychology and character development and ambiguity. I admired the physics, the metaphysics and metapsychology, if you know what I mean. I am a kind of psychonaut myself (the kind without drugs) and I can appreciate all kinds of psychedelic adventures and evolutions. So the first book, maybe the second, a little the third, that's good. Attanasio is the master of world-building, things-naming (Gerrold would envy him) and things-working. I can usually spot where the author was taking his inspiration and if it was done inappropriately, but this is all so well done, up to the point of being almost realistic. There are not that many possibilities in sci-fi that spans across universes, it's a matter of which quantum theory you choose, and Attanasio chose well and sticks to it. Don't get me wrong, even the stories are good, thrilling, even. You could say it's mostly pure action. It's just that in the end, the Last Legends of Earth, the whole action is all like theater, mythical, archetypal, pre-destined, both literally and figuratively, there is nothing to figure out whatsoever, no more than flying bullets can change their goal, only perhaps fall aside, but not much else. It's quite clear who's good, who's bad, everyone knows their destiny and they aren't making much gesture of protest, which is good manners. There are few moral dilemmas, but they fall aside in the face of war of the good vs the bad guys and their pawns. War has a way of uniting things and pushing moral problems aside. Moral philosophy is prevention like nutrition, not surgery, it has no place when hell breaks loose. What you will read is the most impressive non-interactive series of scenes you will ever see, except Gene Wolfe's Book of the New Sun (only beautiful and not depressing). A book has an advantage over film, in that it's interactive, it can play with your mind, by relating to something that the fiction and your life have in common. This has nothing in common with anything you know. In philosophy it is always important to say, "compared to what?" So, for comparison, let's say I've read a Japanese light novel series called Overlord by Maruyama Kugane (it has a very decent anime adaptation). You may think this is not the top of world's literature or originality (a very common fantasy theme of virtual reality game becoming real), but the settings, the psychology and possible situations with the characters gave me so much inspiration and so much space for philosophical and psychological conflicts and resolutions, that I could take the Overlord LN series and write a new fan fiction series ten times as good as the original, thanks to the universal themes that the author worked with. This is not possible with Attanasio, he will get out of your head as soon as you're done reading. Or maybe just the final book way too long, I don't know. Please share your thoughts.
