5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Sci-fi Series, 5 Dec. 2012
By 
This review is from: The Middle Kingdom (Chung Kuo) (Paperback)
If you are new to Chung Kuo...buy the these books, you'll love them! Read the prequels too.

If you've read the original series...still buy the new books, you'll love the story all over again and these new versions are even better than the originals.

The story is terrific and very original (and not a little frightening due how prophetic the premise seems to be becoming!). They are incredibly ambitious works and are always interesting and exciting. Can't wait for the next one - already have it on pre-order.

If you are a fan of Frank Herbert, James Clavell, Peter F Hamilton, David Feintuch, Orson Scott Card etc (like me) then give these a try. The series is like Dune meets Shogun...

For fans of the original series who are unsure whether to read these new versions, I was in the same boat but decided to try them and am so glad I did. There is plenty of new material in here and the re-writes improve the excellent originals.

Looking forward to the remainder of the series and also hopefully some other new original novels by a great writer in David Wingrove...
