[Novel] Heechee Rendezvous (Frederik Pohl)

Heechee Rendezvous

It’s interesting how every book in Gateway series feel like it should belong to a completely different sci-fi genre. While the first novel mostly concentrated on the protagonist and analyzing his mental state, and the second was some weird xenophobia mystery, the third installment is a space opera that offers the grandest of scales but is somehow the least exciting.

Well, at least I know what one of the main inspirations of Mass Effect was.

Positive: Negative:
Fascinating setting
Feels very incomplete, as if it just stops instead of delivering an ending
Large intergalactic scale The answers to the Heechee mysteries turn out pretty underwhelming
Relatively interesting, likable characters Despite the scale, the least memorable of Gateway books
Engrossing plot with a couple of cool twists
