I actually liked it. Here are my reasons:

  • I'm comfortable with the setting (I'll call it "philosophy in space")
  • The three worlds are intelligently designed (forgive the pun) and fit nicely together (from a dramatic point of view)
  • The stereotypical characters each play a nicely defined and important role
  • The main characters (Akon and the Confessor) develop nicely
  • There are two endings (I'm a sucker for choice :3 )
  • The differences between the future world and our present world are noticable and important to the plot (and not just decoration)

Oh, and a good friend of mine recommended reading it. But that's not a real reason, is it. ;-)

That sounds like it is a big part of the real reason. Just not part of the justification. :)
