4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable space opera with huge ideas
It is the 25th century and the Consortium spreads out over an area of space in the orion arm. Although humanity do not have the capability to use ftl travel, a species called the Shoal do, and are the only species in the galaxy with that know-how. They happily transport humans within the area they have been designated, but they also put strict limits within the agreement...

3.0 out of 5 stars Average confusion
This is a strange read from beginning to end. The plot was either frustratingly obvious, with the characters piecing it together like a drunk attempting a jigsaw puzzle, or just confusing, with random leaps of logic. There were some great ideas in there, original and solid, but the delivery was a little off. It's also worth saying that I'd read the next in the trilogy, if...

3.0 out of 5 stars Ending, what about an ending?, 15 Dec 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stealing Light (Hardcover)
I've just finished this book and I can't say I was that impressed. The basic plot is sound but the story never really gets going. It just bumbles along in its own way, finally running out of enthusiasm, much like this reader, and stops. I know decent ending are hard to write, but please, try. After all, its what an author gets paid for! Certainly not the worst book I have read recently but not exactly a stunning work of literature either. Must try harder.

This is not a 'Space Opera' - I found it quite lightweight. It should not be compaired to Peter Hamilton.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Am Lost For Words, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stealing Light (Hardcover)
Well, nearly.
This book cost me 1 penny!
It is a hardback in perfect condition, arrived promptly and for a small carriage charge.
All I can think is that the sellar either had a streak of human kindness as wide as the Atlantic Ocean...
... or he just got divorced and his wife got hold of his computer!
