Fun but a Let Down
on 20 September 2002
First one of ADF's that I've read for a few years. More philosophical depth than I was expecting andf some really enjoyable thieving/escape/evasion scenes in the first two thirds of the book.
The last part though it seemed that he hadn't really thought about how to finish it and made it the usual huge big massive sci-fi to awe and overwhelm. Unfortunately it didn't and was out of sunc and proportion to the rest. A shame - but with all that still a fun read - especially if you're a fan
