    1. An intelligent,sprawling post-modern space opera over four volumes riffing on themes of consciousness, its definition and its potential evolution and disintegration and variations thereof,including the impact of consciousness on historical development. If this doesn't sound like fun, think about 'the basic molecular longing of enzyme for substraterbon for oxygen. The lust of dust.' p 57 and the dangerously beautiful possibilities of alien intelligences. And for those who prefer their romance to [...]


    2. MacLeod himself first, and brilliantly, pointed out that "History is the trade secret of science fiction." It's a maxim that he's taken to heart - more perhaps than any other sf writer, MacLeod is adept at conveying the grand cyclic rise and fall of humanity's fortunes. He demonstrates a deep understanding of the permanence of change and the impermanence of our particular institutions - while never sacrificing the sharp focus on individual human lives and how they matter that makes fiction compu [...]


    3. This volume comprises The Cassini Division and The Sky Road.The Cassini Division: In the 24th century, post humans, god-like descendents of humans who transformed themselves with high technology, have warped the very fabric of the solar system for unknowable reasons. Ellen May Ngewthu has a plan to rid humanity of these beings, but she must first travel the entirety of the Solar Union, convincing others that post-humans are the threat she knows they areThe Sky Road: Her rockets redundant, her [...]


    4. Ken M had the ability to take 2000 pages of very dense plot and in turn it into a great story. The Sky Road felt like all the filler between story material turned into a novel, done fabulously well, but still I wasn't convinced in the long read that the final book met the standards he set in the first three. Although the chances are good that the problem was with me as a reader. I had a problem with the political message throughout all the novels and it distracted me from the series as a whole. [...]


    5. Picked up this 2 Volume Kindle eBook edt. as it was cheap after I read the 2 star review by Ben Babcock. While his rating was only two stars, the main themes interest me enough, having read some books with near future or post-singularity themes - and having even more on my bought-TBR list. Also his detailed review does not warrant 2 stars for me, based on the review I would have given 3 to 3.5 stars, rounded to 4.Explanation of the term: Singularity link to entry.


    6. The Sky Road was a much stronger book than Cassini Division, which almost had me swear off MacLeod. It wasn't a bad book as space-operatic romps go, but plenty of the character and plot points had me groaning. Fortunately Sky Road was much better.
