So maybe setting Vernor Vinge aside for a year was a good idea, and I now can continue to read whatever the Tines are up to instead of skipping over pages in disinterest...
@galaxis I’m about halfway into this book now. It’s technically a prequel. Fascinating aliens, as always with Vinge, but the book does take its time to get the story going.
@tsturm Yeah, it has almost the volume of the first two books combined though (I have an omnibus edition ebook, and it showed me below 60% read when starting on the third), so I'd assume there's enough room for the storylines to converge towards the end.
