My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It took me a while to get into this. I don't think I'd ever read anything by KSR before -the story (of a generation trip's arrival to their destination in Tau Ceti and what happens after) is told by an AI but this is only clear after a while. I found the protagonists relatable, believable people although there were what I felt were contradictions, particularly towards the end. I liked the symmetry of how the book begins and ends. To say anything more would be to introduce spoilers -just one more thing, it could have done with a little sub-editing as it rambles on in places.
