This is the conclusion to many of the storylines from the first two books. The quality of writing continues and has grown to an almost literal full universe created by Taylor. While there are many different threads that have been talked about the four main Bobs are the main focus. The conclusion of the Eden/Archimedes storyline is a good capping and bitter sweet that shows the main Bob has come a good long ways from human Bob in Vegas. Although ironically, this Bob seems the most out of the overarching storyline. The Others War is where the main thrust of the book and it's all the space shooting and thinking that you want from this opera. The quest to save humanity and now the colonies are also set up and concluded well. I have to say that the love story with "Howard" Bob and Bridget is one that doesn't quite work or at least left a lot on the table. If Howard had discussed more about what the changes to Bridget would be and how he had solved the problems from his early days that would have added more to the story.

Overall; the action, science fiction, space exploration, good logic, and of course the humor continue to be a stable story telling element and Taylor writes them well. The conclusion was also a nice end with the Bobs that sets out the next storyline but also adds tension but with some cool headed logic that should be expected from "The Bobs". Final Grade - A

I'm pretty new to the sci-fi genre but I have to say I enjoyed this book! It was humorous and well-paced. The only problem I had was keeping up with all of the Bobs.

I have really really enjoyed all of the Dennis E. Taylor books that I have read so far. Against a very high quality background, this is probably my least favourite.
It took me a while to engage with the characters and some of the sub-plotting felt relatively week.
That being said, the book picked up pace in the latter half and I enjoyed it overall ... I will follow up with the sequels.
As ever, Ray Porter's narration is flawless.

While the overall Bobiverse story continues to develop, much of this novel is spent with original Bob. A bit of a Ringworld homage. Exploring Heaven's River was worth my time. I particularly like that Bob once again grows personally, metaphysically due to deep philosophical discourse with one of the native people (...otters?...). The author shows great respect for all of his creations.
