The greatest anomaly - why is it like this?
on 4 September 2015
I have read, and greatly enjoyed, several of Mr.Cawdron's other books which have always had great story lines and a forward thrusting pulse of excitement combined with good characterisations and dialogue. But in this one I was sadly disappointed. The basic premise, the appearance on earth of an unexplainable anomaly, is a fine one and would have made a good, perhaps brilliant, short story. But it is so padded with lengthy science primer and drawn out morality discussion that it loses impact becoming, instead, more of a polemic in a poor imitation of The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist.
So three stars for the idea but I can't recommend the book.
