Such an amazing epic comes to an end. Must say I loved the ending, which I didn't see coming. Fitting for the end of the rivalry between Montrose and Blackie over Rania. A space opera fueled on hard science spanning millennia as the two Texans fight over the Space Princess. John C. Wright always...

7- (just short of four stars) I must confess I'm conflicted about this book. When you've read this far in the 'Eschaton sequence' I think you can't miss this book. It's the conclusion of this series and you won't ever find a more epic conclusion to any series thinkable than presented in this volu...

I've enjoyed other books by this author that have similar themes, but I just didn't care for this series that much. I think it has a couple of issues.
There are three major things going on in this book besides a sci-fi story, a thinly veiled allegory for Christian eschatology, a romance showing th...

Book six. The only thing I can say without spoilers is that the stakes in this book are the ultimate fate of the universe.
It opens with discussion of how Blackie had not quite ruined the ship, and so Montrose survived, with the help of a hypernova and then of a civilization his ship built. Lettin...

This was the best book of the series by far, finally dramatically increasing the scope which had been slowly winding up over the previous five books.
One aspect of the story remind me of a fleshed out, cowboy/space opera version of the "The Last Question" but given the literary thoroughness the i...

The cosmic sequence comes to a conclusion, with intrigue and conflict on a scale that not even Olaf Stapledon (or Phaeton) imagined. After billions of years, will the Infinity Count defeat the Concubine Vector? Will Menelaus Montrose at last win his crusade against Darwin? -- and withstand his fi...

The first two thirds of "Count to Infinity" feels like Olaf Stapledon's "Star Maker". The author has a large story to tell, but the time scale is so great that the historical synopsis hardly leaves room for a human-scale plot. The good news is that it provides a coherent back-story for the first...

I have rarely read a series that I (a) so thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated on so many levels, or (b) felt so woefully inadequate to review.
My husband's summation of "Count to Infinity" was "It's 'The Last Battle' for grownups." I'd had a similar thought as I reached the final chapters.

So I wasn't necessarily looking forward to this 6th and final book of this series, mainly because a couple of the previous books in the series (3rd and 4th) I thought were basically a waste of my time reading. The 5th was OK, but not great. But for the grand finale, I have to say that Wright real...

My God, this book pissed me off. 5 rock solid books that I devoured multiple times. FIVE AMAZING BOOKS. And then this comes out and shits on it. A thinly veiled rehash of the book of revelation in sci-fi terms, with literally none of the plot surviving to the end except the priest? Why. Why would...
