5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, characterful stuff, 15 May 2009
A dynamic gem of a book, this novel cracks along at a great pace with a brilliantly-realized alien world and some great science fiction concepts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Common Sense, 8 May 2009
Aaronovitch doesn't provide an exhaustive list of conspiracy theories; instead he illustrates his point by looking at some of the some of the biggies, starting with the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, all the way to the suspicions surrounding the death of UN weapons inspector David Kelly. In a sensible, logical manner (and with a fair dose of humour), the author prises off the lid off each conspiracy, pointing out the places where coherent and plausible theories are lacking. An interesting counterpoint to the many shrill and less coherent works on the subject.
