My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Well written but unsatisfying.
I picked this one up because of the multiple universes angle. I did not think that the book exploited that concept as much as I would like. The idea of consciousness being able to move between worlds is interesting, but assumes that there is a commonality between individuals in parallel universes that makes it possible. I needed some more techo-babble to have found that convincing as science fiction. It sort of works as metaphor but only sort of.
I will not be reading the second and third books of the trilogy.
