[Novel] Revelation Space (Alastair Reynolds)

Revelation SpaceDespite some good hard science fiction, and an epic, profound world, Revelation Space is just mostly dull because neither its characters, nor plot, nor the titular revelations are that interesting. The setting definitely holds potential, though, and I imagine it can only get better from now on, so I might still be picking up the other books in the series.

Positive: Negative:
Fascinating, profound world of five hundred years into the future Dull characters
Lots of good hard astro-physics Dull plot (surprisingly little happens)
A couple of good twists and ideas
