Given how review threads usually go in here, the general tone and comments in this thread are a pretty good indication that it was not as well received as some of the previous books.
Don't mistake a few people talking more than others for a general consensus.

The fact remains that 2/3rds of the people here who rated it gave it a positive rating.
By that metric, every TrekLit novel is the epitome of literary art.
Please don't put words in my mouth, as I claimed no such thing. The only "standard" I cited was the fact that a 2/3rds majority of reviewers here gave it a positive rating; this is an indisputable fact.

EDITED TO ADD:

Further, bear in mind that I cited this fact simply to point out to JD that he may well enjoy Revelation and Dust once he reads it, in spite of others' disenjoyment. I was not citing this to make any larger argument about literary quality.
