Sounds like someone's throwing a tantrum...

So long as he's raging here rather than urging people to riot - again - I call it a plus.

Yes, I do.

Does anyone? It's all a load of b*******s whichever way you look at it for the most part.

Spin - what, not who.

"Spin" - a science fiction book by Robert Charles Wilson. Spin

Makes a lot more sense, trust me

Hi Anita,

I certainly hoped it didn't make sense, it was not supposed to...

I thank thee for the link; however that didn't make any sense to me either as the first pages are in German?

:)

So that fits the "Spin" bill perfectly. Anyway, the book does exist in English :)

T. Green says:
Certainly does Anita :-) if you find the english link post it as I cant seem to find it, I might like to read the first few pages, just for fun.

More luck at dot com, it seems:

Some reviews of "Spin" from Amazon.com:

"boring and without a doubt a great waste of time. I stuck with this because I felt that just around the corner, or next page, a something of consequence would happen. No, nothing happened, page after page after page of nothing."

"...interesting enough, but the second two thirds devolve into vapid pointless tedium"

"made no sense at all."

I think the book's pretty good though.

I bet you chose very carefully the reviews to quote. :)

It is a good book. Not *very* good though. An interesting idea, but something is lacking, and I can't really put my finger on what it is

Fair enough Old Sport. Yes most of it is.

lol, I was very selective. Most of the reviews are pretty favourable but the consensus seems to be that the author wanted to make it more of a novel about characters with a bit of sci-fi thrown in rather than an out and out sci-fi novel. Unfortunately his characters aren't very well developed so he doesn't pull it off.

It's almost got me interested enough to buy/download a copy.

Heretic who gave you another link said on another thread he's listening to the book and enjoying it so far. Also, as I said on another thread, there are two sequels, Axis starts good, but does not deliver at the end (disappointing, actually), and I haven't read the third.

Hey, are we on some Spin promoting spree? :)
