4.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff From Some Excellent Writers!
When Ramon Espejo, a prospector and local thug, kills a diplomat in a brawl at a bar, he flees as far as he can from the rest of humanity. What he doesn't realise, is, how far. Hoping to make his fortune (and avoid the police) he goes to the mountains where he comes upon something so utterly profound that it changes him forever...

Hunter's Run, is above all, a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read
This book is very different to my usual texts so it took a little while for me to get into it. However, saying that, I really enjoyed it in the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, as always from Martin, 10 Aug 2009
This review is from: Hunter's Run (Paperback)
As always, George R. R. Martin has put his name on a good book. This time the focus is squarely on the concept of identity and the struggles of facing yourself. The only thing that drags the score down is the fact that it is not quite as page-turning as Martins' books usually are.

3.0 out of 5 stars intricate character development, but very dull novel, 28 Dec 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hunter's Run (Hardcover)
hunter's run is a very readable character-driven scifi about a man, hunting another man at the beck and call of an alien slave driver. it is an intricate tale of changing loyalties and values and the survival of the fittest amongst unforgiving alien locales.

supposedly it took almost 30 years to get to the hardback version here reviewed, having sat on Dozois and Martin's desks for 2 decades alternately.

Anyways, it is nicely written - all the author's are great prose writers

however, the book is very lacking in terms of any real interesting plot or events. things are well described and lifelike, but i didnt care who lived or died - i felt i was just going through the motions of a story - very uninvolving.
that said, in terms of character development it is quite an intricate story - shame about the rather dull world and outside events.

Overall readable and provocative but dull
6/10

4.0 out of 5 stars a god read, 1 Nov 2007

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Hunter's Run (Hardcover)
this is a great read, won't say much on the plot, other than this is a story of self discovery for the protagonist. fans of GRRM, this is an essensial read, if your a fan of a song of ice and fire, and not familiar with his sci-fi stories, read this book and the book dreamsongs to discover the other really enjoyable works of GRRM

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish ..., 6 Oct 2007
This review is from: Hunter's Run (Hardcover)
This is one of the worst books I have read in a long time. The storyline is boring and doesnt grip you. The characters lack depth and generally unappealing. The story also feels unfinished. Avoid this book!
