This book was much easier to understand than the previous two.  While the aliens are much more different in temperament to humans they are decently easy to understand.  I also like that the things which happened in the book aren’t as much luck surrounding a single person as they are a compounding of factors.  There is a certain flow of one action causing another that wasn’t really a part of the previous books as much, he just seemed to have everything happen to him without it being because of something he did.
