[Novel] The Annals of the Heechee (Frederik Pohl)

The Annals of the Heechee

Book

A somewhat disappointing end to an otherwise pretty amazing tetralogy.

Positive:
Negative:
Interesting, rich, and relatively realistic far future sci-fi setting
Most of what happens in the book feels like padding
Likable, relatively profound characters
Disappointing ending that renders most of what has happened redundant
Thought-provoking on a variety of themes, and immortality in particular
The plot is kind of dull, with most events, especially near the start, failing to interest
