The Departure (Owner Trilogy 1) by Neal Asher

4.0 out of 5 stars Dystopian horror!, 13 Nov 2013
A really enjoyable book and exactly the kind of work Mr Asher has been entertaining us with for a long time now. The build up does have its fair share of deus ex machina to get us to the concluding off world fire fights, but if you can live with that then the closing 150 or so pages are a ripping read. There are a lot of critical reviews and of the ones I checked out they all seemed to be concerned by the politics of the book- which is ridiculous.

Follow Me- Didn't like so much but growing a bit on me, sounds like Eurasia
Animals- Maybe the most "muse" track on… Read more

The Walking Dead Compendium presents a story concept that whilst not that original in plotline is quite original in scope. The artwork is decent (I am no comic expert however) but the characterisation seems to me simplistic a lot of the time. The comics are strongly outperformed in terms of story delivery by the TV series however (which is what brought me to read them in the first place). This is more of an issue with the comic's structural limitations than the actual work in this piece itself. If you want dynamic action than TV is always, when well executed, going to outperform a comic- so what's left? Artwork is good but hardly inspiring and a novel can deliver so much more in terms of… Read more
