Well, I finished it last night, and I've got mixed feelings about it. For the first hundred pages, it seemed rather slow going. I was struggling with Mr. Martin's writing style. This is the first book by Michael Martin that I've read that wasn't graced by the contribution of Mr. Mangels, and it seems to suffer from Mangels' absence. It seemed a bit clunky, a bit flat, and too dragged out. That said, the overall story was interesting, and I kept reading because I did care and want to know what was going to happen. And the last few pages makes me wish the next Titan book was coming out sooner. I voted Average on the poll. He may have overused the word cloaca.
