4.0 out of 5 stars A good read
I always enjoy L E Modesitt's stories and The One Eyed Man was no exception.
Just wish that it had been a usual full length book rather than a short novelette.

4.0 out of 5 stars A typical Modesitt Science Fiction novel, 30 Dec 2013
This review is from: The One-eyed Man: A Fugue, with Winds and Accompaniment (Hardcover)
If you have read more than one of Modesitt's science fiction novels then you could almost predict his hero. Intelligent and much more perceptive than most of those around him, physically active and with combat skills. This time he isn't a pilot or ex-pilot but given that the story mainly takes place on one planet and with little flying that doesn't matter. This is a typical book in other ways, a complicated series of events are happening and it is up to us the reader as well as the protagonist to pick up the clues that are hidden throughout the book and solve the issue of what is going on before disaster occurs.

It is hard to really like the protagonist and aspects of his character don't always ring true e.g. if he is so perceptive then how comes he and his wife were divorced in the manner it happened. This isn't one of his truly classic books but it is still much better than many of the other science fiction books written as it requires an intelligent reader to appreciate it.

This review is from: The One-eyed Man: A Fugue, with Winds and Accompaniment (Hardcover)
Book ordered as agift for reader of this author but had not appreciated that the author writes in several genres and the recipient was not a fan of this particular genre - rather he prefers the sagas - book unread
