Asher has an axe to grind, but what a shiny, well-honed and beautifully weighted axe it is... He's on top of his game with this one and his confidence entwines a fibrous thread throughout the plot. Multiple narratives occurring in different timeframes, shifts between first-and third-person perspectives, a detailed and convincing description of planetary ecosystems...In lesser hands, a rambling wayward text could well result. What we have instead is a wonderfully rich and complex tale that happily flips between giving the mind something weighty to mull over and pleasing its baser, thrill-seeking desires... Asher's skill is making it all seem wild, wonderful, politically provoking and fresh. --.
The world of the AI-run Polity civilisation has been building to a ferocious level of complexity over Asher's past seven books, but Hilldiggers is an ideal jumping-on point, being relatively sefl-containted, packed full of intrugue, and - most importantly - one of his most ambitious and gripping novels yet...Hilldiggers is both inventive and expertly paced, navigating an incredibly complex story without losing any of the clarity or momentum...if there's a more enjoyable and provocative sci-fi action saga this year, we'll be seriously surprised. --.
One of his most enjoyable novels yet --Starburst
A massive SF drama from one of Britain's most popular new talents --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product Description
Honestly, I think I was underwhelmed by this book. It did not feel connected to the previous book in the series, and the universe in which it is set feels quite dry. Read morePublished 3 days ago by David

The book is the second in Neal Asher's Polity series. It was a good read if a trifle long winded. I liked the Tigger..Published 5 months ago by P C Brickwood
Hilldiggers is an efficient sci-fi thriller set in the polity universe. This usually means big mean aliens, cool supertech and superpowers. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Julien Declercq
Neil at his best, a great read and I suspect we will see a return of the alien causing all the problems in the future.Published 5 months ago by Eugene Beirne
