Needs a prequel, or something., 1 July 2012
I don't know if it's me or the book but I had great difficulties just getting through this one.
And I have really tried to read it, tried to like it as much as I've liked his other books.
I have really loved Alistair Reynolds other books, and have read perhaps not everything he's written, but everything I have been able to get my hands on. And I can really recommend them all. But Terminal World and I just didn't get along that well.
Where AR's other books have created interesting personas just in a few pages or lines, halfway through this one I still don't really care what happens to the main characters, what the big mystery or main plot really is all about.
Spearpoint seems to be an interesting place. At least I'm guessing it is since I didn't really get to know a lot about it. Still I'm supposed care about the place and the people there?
Could we perhaps hope for a "prequel" just about Spearpoint and its history?
But read it. Hopefully you'll like it better than I did.
Just don't expect it to be a "regular" Alistair Reynolds story...
