Revelation Space - Alistair Reynolds

Bog-standard modern epic space opera. 500 pages, space ships, people converted to AIs, cyborgs, plagues, disasters and Alien Forces Beyond Your Comprehension. All reasonable enough, although not as fun as Vernor Vinge and not as thought-provoking as Greg Egan. A bit like Iain Banks, if he wrote harder sci-fi.
