Frustrating read lacking consistent detail
on 17 April 2015
This was a frustrating read. The basic plot and imaginary world scenario were inrtiguing, but the development of the story lacked realistic characters and centred on some very dubious physics,where tidal attraction caused the sea to evaporate. CHaracters were used ruthlessly as plot devices and an ending which almost seemed determined by a word count, rather than a worked out denouement. I won't include any spoilers as lovers of traditional pulp fiction might well love thisbook,but it doesn't work for me.
