Where's the City at the End of Time?

Well, two weeks in a row with two not-so-positive reviews posted at SFFWorld by yours truly. This time round its Greg Bear’s City at the End of Time, a novel for which I held some hope since I enjoyed some of his earlier Science Fiction novels, as well as his foray into Fantasy – Songs of Earth and Power. The story had some interesting concepts, but ultimately, the narrative didn’t hold together too well for me. I could be wrong and this could be the case of the book just not working for me, since I’ve seen some positive buzz and chatter 'round the intarwebs for the book. Well, at least I think John Clute’s review is positive. I often feel less intelligent after reading most of his reviews.
