So, four years after my first attempt, I've finally finished the Rama series. This book, the fourth and final one in the quadrilogy, is not the worst of the batch. But then being better than the unmitigated drivel that was [b:The Garden of Rama|112518|The Garden of Rama (Rama, #3)|Arthur C. Clarke|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1171659410s/112518.jpg|876293] is not a particularly trying task.

Despite my misgivings that all the important things about Rama had been "revealed" in this book's predecessor, we do in fact find out who created Rama and its related infrastructure, and why. It's an answer that I feel should be powerful and thought provoking, but it's thrown out there by an unreliable figure, and then confirmed later by someone more reliable who also admits he might be wrong. Certainly, the answer seems like an attempt to make the series seem more profound, but instead serves to trivialise life, religion, and our Universe as a whole frankly.

The philosophical antics only arrive at the very end of the book, though. For the most part it's a dummy's guide to the biology and culture of the octospiders from [b:Rama II|10612691|Rama II (Rama, #2)|Arthur C. Clarke|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1298827472s/10612691.jpg|1907786]. This in itself is mildly interesting but doesn't really warrant the four hundred pages that it takes up. After that there's a lot of complaints about being old and then the last philosophical twenty pages. The last section just saves the book but I still wouldn't readily recommend it. ( )

I thought the final installment in the Rama series was an improvement over the previous. If you can make it through "The Garden of Rama" then you will be treated with more science fiction as we meet alien species. It veers into an interesting social commentary when comparing the actions and behaviors of those species when compared to humans. Overall, it is a worthwhile end to the timeline - not altogether unpredictable, but a good story nonetheless. ( )

Good finale for the series. Better then book 3. My main complaint was the length. I was ready to finish before the book was. I almost quit the series after the "Garden of Rama" but this book was kept my interest.

The best take-away of the entire series is that we are not the biggest, best nor the most intelligent beings in existence. We are mostly small and stupid and may eventually rely on the tolerance of those who are better. I other words, "humans need to park their egos". ( )

It was a struggle to stick with this book, but I wanted to see how the story turned out. The series was disappointing. The last book was especially so. ( )

Only readers who are genuinely curious about the nature of the Rama enterprise and the mysterious intelligences behind it will find reason to struggle through this inert narrative.
