Multi-Threaded Books

I just finished reading a multi-threaded book. It was a real pain to get into, for every time you got hold of what was going on the story switched to another parallel thread. Two thread, possibly three are manageable, but this one had four (one of which was not directly connected), and was written in "future-speak" which is a pain to get to grips with.

The book: "Queen of Angels" by Greg Bear was okay, nothing exciting, but worth getting through. It's back on the shelf now, I don't think it will be a book I read time and time again though.
