The ending, described in posts below, is a bit jarring, but, as far as I can tell, is part of an overall shift in the accepted form of the novel withing the science fiction genre (a similar denoument occurs in "Somebody Comes to Town, Somebody Leaves Town," a novel published contemporaneously). It will be interesting to see where it leads.
A. Every speculative fiction novel is now an excuse for weird sex scenes
B. The average writer's ability to form an imaginative sentence has improved vastly from the days of Clark and Sturgeon.
This novel is a good example of both.
